about

This is track #5 on this recording. If you've ever seen Reggie in concert you know about the size of his slide, a frictionless marine propeller shaft bearing, or, cutless bearing. At more than twice the size of any normal bottleneck slide, folks do stare.

lyrics

It’s The Slide Of Your Size
Reggie Miles © 2012 All rights reserved

It’s not the size of your slide it’s the slide of your size
Ain’t no need to get jealous of the other guy’s
Boys you better get hip to this tip to the wise
It’s not the size of your slide. It’s the slide of your size.

A long time ago it used to be slick
To walk real soft and carry a big stick
But I’m here to remind all you big stick guys
It’s not the size of your slide. It’s the slide of your size.

All you misters have heard sisters testify
It ain’t the meat it’s the motion that satisfies
I’d like to confirm that notion and dispel the lies
It’s not the size of your slide. It’s the slide of your size.

All you hicks diggin’ me pick my licks
The way that I slip and glide
If you want all the girls to roll their eyes
It’s not the size of your slide. It’s the slide of your size.

All you boys, makin’ all that noise
I hope you now realize
Don’t apologize for your merchandise
It’s not the size of your slide. It’s the slide of your size.

If you listen to the words of this simple song
You know it don’t matter if your length ain’t long
I may be wrong, but I surmise
It’s not the size of your slide. It’s the slide of your size.
