about

Hotsy Totsy Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Hotsy Totsy is a refreshing, indie pop band out of Philadelphia, PA. This trio gives a smart wink and nod to the golden age of girl groups past and pulls that harmony driven sound forward into the present with renewed relevance.

Track Name: Blackbird
Blackbird, have you heard winter song humming her tune
Blackbird, heard you were planning on leaving us soon
Oh oh ~~~ Oh oh

Grey skies, sun is hiding, clouds shed a few tears for you
Grey skies, say goodbye, blackbird and I bid adieu

And we fly away homeward bound
And try to get lost and found again for good

You're here, I am gone, two ships that pass in the night
Sure clear we are pawns that haven't quite figured it right

So we fly away homeward bound
And try to get lost and found again for good

Oh oh oh oh ~~ Oh oh oh oh ~~ Oh oh ~~ Oh oh
Oh oh oh oh ~~ Oh oh oh oh ~~ Oh oh ~~ Oh oh oh oh

Fly away homeward bound
Try to get lost and found

I am yours and you are mine
Here and now and all through time

Our eyes meet, two hearts beat
And I am weak in the knees on my feet

Fly away homeward bound
Try to get lost and found again for good

Blackbird, have you heard, ooh
Blackbird, heard you were...
Track Name: Skeletons & Ghosts
Skeletons and ghosts wrapped around my tiny bones
Dying but not alone
Skeletons and ghosts trapped underground and far below
Crying to shake me undone
They whisper

Ooh ooh~~
Tell me a story
Sing me a song
They whisper

Ooh ooh ~~
Not long before we
Are all of us gone
Oh oh oh oh

Skeletons and ghosts haunt me in my waking hours
Weaving in and outside of my mind
Oh oh oh
Skeletons and ghosts taunt me as they take my power
Leaving me to wrestle thoughts unkind
They whisper

Ooh ooh ~~
Tell me a story
Sing me a song
They whisper

Ooh ooh ~~
Not long before we
Are all of us gone

Open your eyes, girl
Before they stay closed
Give life a try, girl
Or you'll grow cold

Skeletons and ghosts, unwrap from round my tiny bones
Finding their way back home
Oh oh oh
Track Name: Mind Your Business
Mind your business, just mind your business
Mind your business
Why don't you worry 'bout yourself, instead of everybody else
We're all fine, whoa oh, and you're out of your mind

Don't tell me what to do what to do
You don't know what I'm going through
And don't tell me how to feel or what's real
That's not your deal, no no no

I'm gonna say this nice and slow
So you can know
Just walk away
And you have a nice day

Mind your business, just mind your business
Mind your business
Why don't you worry 'bout yourself, instead of everybody else
We're all fine, whoa oh, and you're out of your mind

Stop trying to undermine and define
Stop feeding me the same old line
I'm perfectly aware, I don't care
You can take it all elsewhere

We're gonna do this one more time
With pantomime
Just walk away
And you have a nice day

Mind your business, just mind your business
Mind your business
Why don't you worry 'bout yourself, instead of everybody else
We're all fine, whoa oh, and you're out of your mind

You're incorrect, sir
And not just politically
A walking train wreck, sir, oh
Mr. Personality

Why don't you give it a rest now
No one's impressed anyhow
Whoa oh oh oh

Mind your business, just mind your business...
Mind your business...
Why don't you worry 'bout yourself...

Why don't you worry 'bout yourself
Instead of everybody else
We're all fine, whoa oh
You crossed the line, no no no
It's time for you to go
'Cause you're out of your mind
Mind your business, ooh

Yeah
Track Name: In The Clouds
The sunlight fades around me in pink and purple hues
And in that moment what should I do
I glance your way our eyes meet
We make our way through the crowd
We dance away our hearts in the clouds

And I know it isn't right to mislead you
But I know I can't fight the need to
Hold you in my arms like we used to spend
So I'll close my eyes and pretend

The sunlight fades around me in pink and purple hues
And in that moment what should I do
I glance your way our eyes meet
We make our way through the crowd
We dance away our hearts in the clouds

But the dreams of you and me have faded
And I know that our love is jaded
So just one more dance to cover up the lies
Won't you hold my hand and fantasize

La la la la la la la la la la
Ooh ~~~ ah ~~

The sunlight fades around me in pink and purple hues
And in that moment what should I do
I glance your way our eyes meet
We make our way through the crowd
We dance away our hearts in the clouds
