"Hate To Say I Told You So" as written by and Randy Fitzsimmons....
Do what I want 'cause I can and if I don't
Because I want to
Be ignored by the stiff and the bored because I'm gonna
Spit and retrieve 'cause I give and receive
Because I want to
Gonna get through your head what the mystery man said because I'm gonna

Hate to say I told you so, alright
Come on
I do believe I told you so

Now it's all out and you knew
'Cause I wanted to
Turn my back on the rot that's been planning the plot because I'm gonna
No need for me to wait because I wanna
No need two, three, too late because I'm gonna

Hate to say I told you so, alright
Come on
I do believe I told you so

Do what I please gonna spread the disease
Because I want to
Gonna call all the shots for the no's and the not's because I wanna
Yeah
Ask me once I'll answer twice 'cause what I know I'll tell because I wanna
Sound device and lots of ice I'll spell my name out loud
Because I want to
Oh yeah

    General CommentI love the somewhat grainy sound, it reminds me of old "east village" (new york) rock.

    General CommentI don't think he looks like Cheech. But he totally looks like Horatio Sanz (from SNL) to me.
