Custom Made Lover (Words by Spooky James & N. Gido Music by N. Gido & P. La Pierre) I must have said no a thousand times And taken a sip from a thousand wines Each said we were perfect for each other I’m holding out for a Custom Made Lover Something tells me she’s out there Just beyond touch So I keep on searching But I don’t find much I feel her there Just out of reach I listen and wait for what she might teach Yeah she’s holdin’ out for me now She’ll be searching And waiting and waiting And she’ll find me somehow I’ve held out my time And I’ve cast out my line The bait is my cool Those who bite first are fools ‘Cause they aren’t too quick To catch me I’m slick But she won’t let go ‘Cause Custom Made Lover’s aren’t slow I’m holding out for a Custom Made Lover It won’t be easy But I’m gonna gonna find her I’m holding out for a Custom made Lover Built for me and there is no other There ain’t no other She’ll know that I’m hers When I glance her way In each other's arms we will be someday I know when I find her, she’ll be the one I’ll stop and I’ll stay there stay there And I’ll be off of on the run I’ll let her take hold of my line with her bite And bring me in slow while holding on tight I’ve held out my time And I’ve cast out my line The bait is my cool Those who bite first are fools ‘Cause they aren’t too quick To catch me I’m slick But she won’t let go ‘Cause Custom Made Lover’s aren’t slow I’m holding out for a Custom Made Lover It won’t be easy but I’m gonna Gonna find her I’m holding out for a Custom Made Lover Built for me and there is no other There ain’t no other I’m holding out for a Custom Made Lover It won’t be easy but I’m gonna Gonna find her I’m holding out for a Custom Made Lover Built for me and there is no other

Lace By Name 05:20
Lace By Name (Words by Spooky James. Music by N. Gido) You better take cover ‘Cause here she comes again She’s lookin’ real hungry So let the killings begin If you should meet her eyes Don’t dare to challenge her gaze ‘Cause you might interest her Getting caught up in her plays Yeah, she’s lookin’ so good Her smile is so sweet Better keep your distance She brings on the heat Don’t be a fool for her Don’t give her a care ‘Cause she holds up a good front You better watch out for her snares Well she’s Lace By Name And by no means she’s tame She’s cold as steel She likes young blood for her meals She’ll leave you so fast Bones carcass and all Then she’ll start up the hunt There’ll be blood on the wall Take a look at her sharpened teeth They’re stained dark red Now she’s after your soul And she wants to be fed Well she’s Lace By Name And she thinks love is a game She’s savage by touch Her teeth are way too much Oh yeah! Give it to me!

Everlasting Dream (Words & Music by Eddie Perea) I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout a girl I met The one I thought I’d never get Well though I worry and have some doubt I’ll call her up and I’ll ask her out Wanna make her mine tonight To hold her in my arms so tight Well now you know what she means to me She’s my Everlasting Dream Now that I’ve held her close to me I realize where I want, I want to be You know I love her oh so much I need to feel her lovin’ touch Wanna make her mine tonight To hold her in my arms so tight Well now you know what she means to me She’s my Everlasting Dream Wanna make her mine tonight To hold her in my arms so tight Well now you know what she means to me She’s my Everlasting Dream Wanna make her mine tonight To hold her in my arms so tight Well now you know what she means to me She’s my Everlasting Dream

C U Soon 05:40
C U Soon (Words By N. Gido, Music by N. Gido & P.M. Knight) I wonder what you think of me When you look into my eyes So many thoughts & memories will always be in mind What is it that you find in me? What is it that you see? When you hold me oh so tight The feeling sets me free There’s never been anybody Who could make me feel like you do Forever is our today Together now I’m happy to say While this time is ours I give to you this tune I’ll never ever ask for much Just hope to C U Soon Wandering through each moment Wherever the wind blows me I’ve always been starry eyed Never satisfied See you You’ve got a hold of me in time And I’m glad to see you like we do on a midnight rendezvous There’s never been anybody who Could make me feel like you do Forever is our today Together now I’m happy to say While this time is ours I give to you this tune I’ll never ever ask for much Just hope to C U Soon Very glad to C U Soon It’s worth every moment of time Could it be a kind of love you don’t often find? Nobody knows the secrets that we share We’re not afraid to do the things that they wouldn’t dare Wandering through each moment Wherever the wind blows me I’ve always been starry eyed never satisfied See you You’ve got a hold of me in time And I’m glad to see you like we do on a midnight rendezvous There’s never been anybody who Could make me feel like you do Forever is our today Together now I’m happy to say While this time is ours I give to you this tune I’ll never ever ask for much Just hope to C U Soon, C U Soon

Hang Your Prey (Words by N. Gido & Stefan Filer. Music by N.l Gido) Pardon my blood stained leather And my spikes turned inside out My whip is always beside me I live in a whisper ‘till I start to shout Pardon my twisted mind And the way my chain-cuffs shine To most my desire seems cruel & mean But the prey I hang is mine I choose it wild and crazy And justifyingly insane Screams of pain and ecstasy In my world of sweet pain Pain has got a reason It brings me no shame So join me in my reason You can learn to play the game Hang Your Prey Hang Your Prey Hang Your Prey In my world pleasure and pain Become one and the same Now you see I’m after you I’ve come to make my claim You’ll writhe and moan, ooh Wrapped in my web of desire You’ll quiver and shake You’ll lose your breath As I make you walk through fire Pain has got a reason It brings me no shame So join me in my reason You can learn to play the game Hang Your Prey Hang Your Prey Hang Your Prey Hang it!

about

LEGGESY consisted of four strongly molded individual personalities from Albuquerque, New Mexico, whose musical chemistry and high-octane autonomy erupted in attitude-drenched, positive rock-and-roll experience, that electrified audiences with its power rock original anthemic songs and visually stunning bombast of sweat and high energy.

The LEGGESY experience was an ultimate explosion of captivating and thorough entertainment, which received widespread recognition as one of New Mexico’s most powerful entities and voices in original metallic-edged Hard Rock.

As young teenagers, the assembly independently recorded, produced, and marketed an all original nine-song debut released on Halloween 1987 entitled, “LEGGESY,” which instantly sold out its initial 1,000-copy pressing. A second, larger pressing was printed only a couple of months later.

LEGGESY would also make many various personal and musical appearances on both indie and nationally syndicated radio stations, as well as making appearances on various TV shows. They have been feature-showcased and their videos would stay in heavy rotation on several music shows.

LEGGESY would also appear alongside BLACK SABBATH, DEEP PURPLE and ALICE COOPER on the internationally released rock compilation “High-Intensity Discharge” with two tracks—“Lace By Name” and “Custom Made Lover”—released in November 1988. The track “Custom Made Lover” would receive a great amount of airplay on Z-Rock coast-to-coast radio, broadcast out of Dallas. The song was played three times a day on Z-Rock’s “Too New” show. A video of the song was filmed and produced with footage shot using KGGM Channel 13’s (CBS) helicopter of the band performing on the roof of the then Holiday Inn Pyramid building in Albuquerque, NM.

LEGGESY would have two more tracks appear on the compilation album, “Southwest Edge'' released on April 6, 1990.
