Far too much to let him go
But go he must, that I know
There's one too many in this affair
And she knows that I don't ever share
So not to leave this thing in limbo
I make my point by tossing him out a window.

I make my point by tossing him out a window,
He'd been warned when he entered the room,
He found his way in, he could find it back out,
More, if it wasn't done quickly,
From me he'd get a good clout.

I repeated my warning twice over,
Was he hard of hearing or just buzzing about?
At any rate my threat was put into action,
With a fly swatter I rubbed his life out.

With a fly swatter I rubbed his life out
That'll teach him to be flying about
ZZZZZZZ in my ears and in my hair
And now all quiet, nothing there
Is there a heaven where flat flies go
Was I wrong to have acted so
Now I find myself all alone
And open a window to atone

And open a window to atone,
Do I with a scarcely heard moan,

For the noxious fumes that are worse
than a long running family curse,

After which I make my escape,
With the cash, but also alone.

Who's that calling on the phone?
My bookie wants paid alas
He's wanting all of my cash
Alone again but now I'm broke
All my big dreams gone up in smoke

Helping me to start and never get down,
I was sitting here, wearing a crown,
when all of a sudden, there was a big bang,
I turned to look, and there was a chain gang,
now it's time for me to frown,
for that gang wanted to take me down.
It wasn't fair, but they decided to hang
me from the ceiling, by my wang.
I should have just stuck to being a clown,
because impersonating the king, made me hang upside down!

because impersonating the king, made me hang upside down!
my smile became a strange frown,
under the furniture I could see
it was filthy indeed
with dust and debris
accumulating with the passage of time

no laughing matter was this state of affairs
but there was nothing I could do
to clean under those chairs
as long as my world was turned around.

As long as my world was turned around,
And goodness prevailed once again,
I'm sure that I would not hear the sound,
of anguish, dispute and pain.
But no, it goes on by day and by week,
misery, sadness, despair.
Badness is king 'cos I'm just a freak,
Who lurks in a dungeon-like lair.

Who lurks in a dungeon-like lair?
She looks like a dangerous creature
With horns and medusa-like hair
I'm studying every feature
But when I look into her eyes
It is not agression I see
So all of the fear in me dies
And slowly it's dawning to me
The outside may not look like mine
But the truth is found under the skin
And even the hide of a swine
Can be hiding true beauty within





If life seems jolly rotten
there's something you've forgotten
and that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing

Can be hiding true beauty within
A diamond with flaws still sparkles brightly
Yet one's true valor is often hidden by skin
And revealed at times ever so slightly

this feeling of mine i kept so tightly
for the one i love who doesn't love me
a true gentleman so caring and free
i am not giving up i want him to feel
this feeling so true and no one can steal

This feeling so true and no one can steal
But unanswered and that makes it harder to deal
With his presence around you whenever you're here
It hurts to be close, though you still want him near
So you try to convey to him how much you feel
And you hope that he sees it and makes your dream real

but this is not a fairy tale, i think my heart won't heal
from the pain its causing me for so many years
i want him to realize hes the reason for my tears
my friends keep telling me to stop being stupid
but what can i do my hearts been shot by cupid...

But what can i do, my hearts been shot by cupid
And I've been consumed by my undying love since that day
It's a feeling that fills my heart and will not go away
Even though all my friends say I am wasting my time and it's stupid

But there isn't a day I don't think of how we two could play
All the acts of true love, all the things that would totally prove it
That you really are mine and there's nothing on earth that can stop it
That you're in my life now forever and ever to stay

Reality bites me when I have to open my eyes
And I look and I see that you'll never be more than a friend
Oh why can't I listen to friends who are giving advice

But inside of me everything pulls up a wall to prevent
That a piece of my heart stops believing in chances and dies
For my love for him will be a part of me until the end

If life seems jolly rotten
there's something you've forgotten
and that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing

For my love for him will be a part of me until the end
No matter how many days upon this earth I spend

Though he has passed to the other side long ago
I shall never stop loving him he is my ebb and flow

I shall never stop loving him, he is my ebb and flow
Makes no difference if he is near,
In my heart he's never far.

Kind and gentle, but don't take him for granted
He won't be pushed around,
He's known for his sense of fairness
And will befriend the underdog.

So much more that I could say,
To tell you of this fine man,
I hope you know someone like him
To be your faithful friend.

To be your faithful friend
Is how the story should end

Never should it be said
The words that are read

Will ever change my mind
For I know I will not find

Another who touches my heart
We've connected from the start

We've connected from the start,
oh, yes, you're forever in my heart.
Through the good times and the bad,
you've always been there, in my bed.
Never leave me, sweet internet,
for if you do, I'd be sad, I bet.

For if you do, I'd be sad, I bet.
If the moon never rose and the sun never set.
And yet.
There is hope we should not forget.
The one true love we haven't met.
Music from a sweet cornet.
A dance with a curvy brunette.
The chances taken without regret.

The chances, taken without regret,
Without hesitation or doubt,

As when you dove into an ice cold lake
Not on a dare
But because it was there
And to do so affirmed that you existed

Those chances,
No regrets,
As you sink
Stunned with shock
by the bone chilling reality of the water -

So cold
So clear
So intransigent
yet so welcoming,

Heart pounding,
Adrenalin coursing,
You rise
Break the surface

And gasping,
With regret
Greet the free air
Nostalgic
And still
Yearning for the deep

Yearning for the deep
The comfort found within
Promises meant to keep
Lives yet to begin

Absurdity of love lost
Confused by intense lust
Gratification at any cost
Within the deep there must be trust.

Within the deep there must be trust,
especially when it leaves your hair all mussed.
You'll easily succumb to lust,
when you trust, you'll be trussed,
bound to my heart,
just like I've always been, right from the start.
Your heart is my heart <3

Your heart is my heart?
But how can that be?
Do you feel what I feel?
Do you see what I see?

It can't be!
We can't share the same heart!
When did this start?
Can we share other body parts?

Can we share other body parts?
Are we talking ears or elbows or knees?
I just want to know where to start
Oh won't you tell me please?

A heart is such a vulnerable thing
Sharing that would be very special
Love can make a heart sing
But also be a private hell.

But also be a private hell.
This heart. Bound up in its cell.
The day I fell
in love with Jane
caused me infinite pain,
and even managed to drive me insane.

I sit weary
and feeling fear-y,
so, people, here's my theory:

Love's a pain,
and a really big drain,
but stick with it,
and it'll no longer be shit.
Also, stop whining, you twit.

Also, stop whining, you twit,
You've a head on your shoulders
Start using it.

Don't complain of your aches
Your silly mistakes,
How you could have been better,
Maybe even great!

Get on with today,
Now is the time,

To live for the moment, before the decline.

Such as drinking beer instead of wine.
Or eating pie made of Key lime.
Shutting off the alarm before it is time.
Or getting drunk and walking the line.
Driving too fast because you missed a sign.
I'm tired now, it's time to recline.

Oh I hate that my bed has grown cold
