Description
Short Song Description:
Fun tune about a female who manages to be wild without getting caught.
Long Song Description:
It's about running into a female after a long time--someone who has always had a wild streak, but never gotten into any trouble for it. Has she settled down or not?
Story Behind the Song:
Ray had the title and much of the lyrical content and music already in his head, and was kind enough to collaborate with me on this. For years, we've used phrases similar to the title when talking with others.

verse)
Fancy seein' you again, Sugar, I remember when,
You loved breakin' all the rules.
That mild-mannered disguise, you loved living out those lies,
You had everybody fooled.
Had a lot of close calls, a lot of close shaves,
That devil's in your eyes, I'll bet you still can't behave.


(chorus)
Are you stayin' out of trouble, or just not getting caught?
Are you stayin' out of trouble, or just not getting caught?
Baby, you've been blessed with so much sexiness, it ain't all your fault.
Have you learned your lesson, or do you still think the way you thought?
Are you stayin' out of trouble, or just not getting caught?


(verse)
Girl, you weren't oversexed or psychologically perplexed,
You just liked fooling around a lot.
Still acting sweet as apple pie, pleasing to the naked eye,
Blending innocence with being so hot.
Got what you got without falling off the ledge,
I get the feeling you're still living on the edge.


(chorus)
Are you stayin' out of trouble, or just not getting caught? (Come on, tell me?)
Are you stayin' out of trouble, or just not getting caught?
Honey, you've been blessed with so much sexiness, it ain't all your fault.
Have you learned your lesson, or do you still think the way you thought? (Come on, tell the truth?)
Are you stayin' out of trouble, or just not getting caught? (Are you still playin' those tricks, girl?)


(vamp out with improvisations between lines)
Are you stayin' out of trouble, or just not getting caught? (repeat and fade out)
