Countin on my Friends (featuring Rodney Skeritt)

About the song

After posting the following post Great rapper that raps in English in the Quebec area needed for my album I got a whole lot of feedback from people. I was referred to a guy named Rodney Skeritt. We worked at a distance on this song and this is what happened. Just a fun loving great song with Kim Richardson doing what she does best. The main riff is based on a riff made by the most amazing Goerge Duke. With a bit of doctoring and reverse treatments to his riff I came up with the main feel to the song. I do the lead and Kim Richardson basically sings everyone else’s part. This song is about fun. Was fun to make and was one of those lazy things.

Counting on my friends (Featuring Rodney Skeritt) lyrics

Music by Jacques Gaines
Lyrics: Rodney Skeritt and Jacques Gaines

I want you to get in the house tonight with all you friends all your friends
Everybody party in the house tonight
Never let it end Never Let it end

Kick it like gently kick it like gently ki ki kick it like Jet Li
Hey ey Hey ey. Party in the house today
No way no way! Haters gonna pay! Haters gonna pay!

All week we’ve been working for the party
to seek a liberation called the weekend
We’ve been good, now it’s time to be a little naughty
and you should pump the energy up to ten
So Rodney tell me what we got so far now
Rodney tells me what’s happnin at the bar now

Slip slidin with a red cup sippin my crew tight like Mike and Scotty Pippen
Tonight we ridin Uber so we drinkin no limit. The more this liquor drip the more my intellect slippin
Allready lit and only bin here 5 minutes. This chick gave me her number only remember 5 digits
I’m a add it to the gram in an instant. Plus size model long hair dark lipstick
5 foot 10 and a body so healthy. Bra cup full but a red cup empty
I can fill you up if you let me. Bring your friends we can kick it like Jet Lihhhh

Hey ey Hey ey. Party in the house today
No way no way! Haters gonna pay! Haters gonna pay!

Kick it like gently kick it like gently ki ki kick it like gently

So no matter who you are. No matter what you do
Say I believe in me and you’ll believe in you
To the di di di di dissers and the haters and the non-believers
Just say to yourself “To thine own self be true”
Tell me how its going so far Rodney
Tell me how its going so far ro ro Rodney

Ladies wave your hands if you ain’t got a man at. You looking for somebody to be mad at
You work hard for your cheese like a lab rat. You amazed but this ain’t you can have that
Lower that sound when the pope come around. They was looking for trouble but nothing’s what they found
Close the door and pour another round. Tonight we celebratin all the hommies that been down
Throw your hands in the air and your patties on the ground. Swimmin pool drinkin I hope nobody drown
Head up in the clouds cause my hommies got that loud. Once you step in this house you ain’t never coming out

Hey ey Hey ey! Party in the house today
No way no way. Haters gonna pay! Haters gonna pay!

Kick it like gently kick it like gently ki ki kick it like Jet Li

Wave your hands to the left and the right. Make sure that you doin it tight
This goes for the girls and the boys. Come on boys come on girls.
Now everybody stamp your feet. Make sure we hear it in the street
Make sure we hear it all around. Everybody make a sound
And its gonna continue up. I’m gonna build it up some more
You don’t believe I’m gonna build it up? You better believe I’m gonna build it up
You better believe I’m gonna build it up. Trust me I’m gonna build it up.
Trust me I’m gonna build it up. Up up up up!

Hey ey Hey ey! Party in the house today
No way no way. Haters gonna pay! Haters gonna pay!

Kick it like gently kick it like gently ki ki kick it like Jet Li
I always think I know I can be countin on my friends now
Late at night or early in the morning they be friends now
Everybody everybody keep singin now

I want you to get in the house tonight
With all you friends all your friends
Everybody party in the house tonight
Never let it end Never Let it end
