There are a few of the hallmarks of Chicago soul in Yes I Am – mid-tempo beat with vocal harmonies, anyone? - particularly that pleading-for-a-woman lyric:
I really don’t mind begging
As long as I get my wish
Baby I don’t mind fishing
As long as I catch my fish
And you’ve got to love the way the singer drops the “So bring your foxy self here” line, haven’t you? Yes, you have.
