    If you live in MA you can catch Jay in person at some jazz gigs....I know his drummer quite well ;)
    He's really nice about signing stuff etc....

    Commreman - Thanks for the posting - good job on the song.
    Guess I'll have to do it the old fashioned way - off the record (sorry MP3)

    I was hoping you could pick it up from the video. It is a fairly simple, repetitive line that bounces between C and F. Thanks for the compliment!

    I`m looking here and there

    I`m searching everywhere

    I`m looking for a love

    Gonna get up in the morning

    And rub my head

    I`m looking for a love

    To call my own


    Fix my breakfast

    And bring it to my bed

    I`m looking for a love

    To call my own


    Do my love

    Do it all the time

    I`m looking for a love

    To call my own


    With lots of love and kisses

    But people until then

    I`m looking for a love

    To call my own


    (CHORUS)


    Stay in my corner

    All the way, yeah

    I`m looking for a love

    To call my own


    Stick by me, baby

    No matter what they say

    I`m looking for a love

    To call my own


    I`ll give my love

    To her all the time

    I`m looking for a love

    To call my own


    Loving, kissing

    People on the way

    I`m looking for a love

    To call my own


    (CHORUS) LEAD


    Somebody help me

    To find my baby

    I said I`ve got to find

    My baby right now


    I`m looking in the morning

    I`m looking at night

    Got to find my baby

    But she`s nowhere in sight


    Somebody help me

    To find my baby

    I said I`ve got to find

    My baby right now


    I`m looking in the morning

    I`m looking at night

    Got to find my baby

    She`s nowhere in sight


    I`m looking, I`m looking

    I`m looking, I`m looking

    Great song, great band. One of the best live bands ever during that era.
    Danny Klein gets a roaring tone. Solid player.
