Album Version

Next message:
Hey Mike, what's up?
This is Ron, just asking to see what's happenin'
Uh just touchin' base, see how your Easter went.
Umm, Just seein' if you gonna see Joe sometime soon too,
Cuz he's got my keyboard that I've been trying to get back.
I've been trying to call him, and he hasn't returned any messages.
So I'm seeing what's the best angle to, uh get it back.
