The Lyrics

Good day. It has been a while since my last submission, so the response to this one may be interesting. The lyrics were inspired largely by my parents and our inability to leave on time for any family event. I hope you enjoy. I think this is my first true duet, so I'm kind of excited to try performing this at some point in the future with someone who is willing to provide the 'her' voice. Oh, and pacing isn't spot on in some places. Funny and consistent with normal speech was more important to me for the most part.
When we’re leaving, church or on vacation
Always late, it leaves me in frustration
I won’t have to grieve, if we both could only leave

Slowly, finely, cover when I wake-up
Don’t cuss, focus, one more line of make-up
What will others think, if they see the missing link?
I will look my best because I’ve earned the right
I’ll be the beauty, not the beast tonight

You look good, you look fine, you look acceptable
We’ll be late if you do this any more
Close your eyes, and walk out that f#%$in’ door
And let’s leave, as we’ve never left before

Whining, pining, you don’t bother caring
Please dear, come here, is that what you’re wearing?
Mister ‘loves his job’, can you not dress like a slob?
We have one chance to impress the human race
So go and change your tie, it’s a disgrace

I will not, there’s still time and it is not too far
There’s a mirror you can use inside the car

I just want the world to think that I look GREAT

But no one there will care, we’ll be too late

Stress me, peeve me, why don’t you just leave me?

Fine dear, stay here, I’ll be watching TV

This is all your fault, I’m a visual assault

How is it my fault, I said you look alright?

No, you said I’m ‘acceptable’, let’s fight

Ok, fine I don’t care how good your hair looks now

You have never cared about me, you big jerk
You would love to leave me here and go to work

It’s a Sunday, dear, and you have gone BERZERK

Stop it, drop it, and is a conjunction

Stressful, mess-full, look at this dysfunction

Why can’t we agree, that the one who’s right is me?
Can’t we be a team and make this right?
We’ve missed the function while we had a fight

We may not be orthodox or bright

But nothing is more fun than a good fight


It's not very far

Why's the house not clean, and why are you turning green?

Thanks LuchCakes and thanks MrMacphisto, glad somebody remembers me. I've been switching life-styles too much to write anything much so I haven't been around much. I hope to settle down a bit over the coming months and then start coming around more. I enjoyed supporting your work and the work of others on the site when I had time. I'd like to have time again. We'll see...
