February 1+1 Competition, Scoring Phase

Recommended Posts

Please scroll down to read the winners of the February one plus one competition!

 

 

The scoring phase of the February 1+1 competition has commenced. Between now and midnight (Pacific Time) March 6, each contestant needs to send me your four favorite entries: the songs that impressed or inspired or moved you the most in this competition. The order of your four picks doesn’t matter. For scoring purposes, they’ll all be weighted the same. On March 7, I’ll post the names of the four songs that received the highest number of votes. As always, noncontestant voters will be very welcome. Not that it's been an issue, but don't vote for your own entry.
 
Good luck, everyone!

 

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to the February Song Contest – a 1+1 Format competition. For long-time Musers, please make note of recent changes noted below in the contest rules. 
 
For any newcomers, 1+1 means the entry is limited to one instrument and one voice. No doubling, harmonies, extra instruments, etc. Think open mic and you'll get the picture. I will be hosting this month so PM me with any questions please.  And please note that Musers are not required to post their entries in the Songs Feedback section of MuseSongwriters for the 1+1 comp.
 
The timeline is as follows:
• Entries will be accepted now through Midnight Pacific Time Tuesday, February 27.
• Voting (scorecards) will take place Tuesday, February 28 through Midnight (MST) Tuesday, March 6.
• Don’t start voting until I officially post the scoring instructions on February 28.
I'll post the results the day after the March 6 voting deadline.
 
If you plan to enter, please review the revised rules, pinned in this forum.
When posting your song, please include:
•song title
•writer credits (If it’s a collab with another Muser please make that clear by including their M/M id)
•audio link
 
The longstanding rules for the 1+1 all apply, with the following revisions:

3. Once the competition opens for scoring, send the Moderator running the competition your choices for the top entries. The Moderator will announce how many songs you are to pick as your favorites; this number will depend on how many entries there are. The number will approximate one-third the number of total entries. All your picks will receive equal weight in the competition. 

4. The Moderator running the competition will post only the top-third high-scoring entries, in order of the number of total votes received. If your entry is not among those listed and you'd like to know how your song ranked, pm the moderator running the competition and that information will be provided to you. 

Please include the lyrics on your post. You may include a small introduction about your song but any other text may be removed by the moderator. Videos are permitted. (Voters will be encouraged to refrain from watching any video until after they've scored the song.)

All Musers are welcome to submit songs as contestants or score the songs as non-contestants. Any questions or problems should be sent to me via private message (PM).

Sweeter Side of Somber

 

Lyrics, music and performance: Me

 

Sweeter side of somber

 

Born on the stroke of midnight
With the wind right by my side
Not really smiling
Only hiding to get by
It pulls me in, right from within
Whispering in my ear
That on the sweeter side of somber
I’ll disappear
On the sweeter side of somber
I’ll disappear

 

I crossed no oceans not even a single road
Really did no traveling, always did what I was told
Never new the truth, never had no youth
And freedom’s just a word to me
But on the sweeter side of somber
I’ll be free
On the sweeter side of somber
I’ll be free

 

Born on the stroke of midnight
With the wind right by my side
Not really smiling
Only hiding to get by
Then it pulls me in, right from within
Whispering in my ear
That on the sweeter side of somber
I’ll disappear
On the sweeter side of somber
I’ll disappear

Put The World On Hold

 

 

Verse 1:
One, two, three, Saturday morning you and me
Breakfast in bed, so nice, Bloody Marys, pizza slice,

 

Pre-chorus(?):
Don’t you think it would be OK for us to sleep in a little longer?
Maybe thru Monday?
And put the world on hold ....

 

Verse 2:
You work all week, How’s it going? You don’t speak... about ..
stupid little things and annoying human beings.

 

Chorus:
I’ll be counting on you till the end of the line!
But no need for an S.O.S. ‘cause I think we’re doing fine .. and
I can help you get undressed and you won’t feel the cold
But for now it’s back to bed, and put the world on hold.

 

Verse: 3
Aroma of ...
fresh-brewed joe, i.e. coffee, fills the air.
a cup of tea for you, my aren’t we a ragged pair :)

 

Outro:
One, two, three,. Saturday morning! Saturday morning!
Saturday morning!
Saturday morning!
Saturday morning!

I said a while back  that I was going to stop entering (and judging) the song contests because my tastes seemed to differ a lot from others, but as I just finished the intial write on this song, though I might as well enter it and then get some crits.

 

'Peace and Love' - lyrics, music, performance, just me

 

 

Peace and Love

 

V1

Jimmy always was a good kid

Excelled at everything he did

Never missed a delivery on his paper route

Every merit badge as an eagle scout

Captain of his high school football team

Living the teenage American dream

When his country gave him the call

He said to his friends: ‘peace and love to you all’

 

V2

Jimmy did two tours across the sea

Fighting a faceless enemy

Kept his platoon away from harm

When he took some shrapnel in his arm

He got married, had a boy

Spitting image, pride and joy

Again his country gave him the call

He said to his family ‘peace and love to you all’

 

V3

Jimmy went off to fight another war

Not really sure what it all was for

To his country he’d always be true

He’d do whatever he was asked to do

But he wasn’t so lucky this time

Took a round of bullets near his spine

Now he’s M.I.A. per the protocol

But I bet he's still wishing peace and love to us all

 

V4

Jimmy never made it back home

His whereabouts unknown

In his family’s minds, he still stands tall

His memorial plaque engraved: ‘peace and love to you all’

Here's my entry - thanks to the lyrics forum for their help :)

Lyrics/music - blame it all on me :)

 

https://soundcloud.com/paulcanuck/the-trouble-is

 

The Trouble Is...

 

Alzheimer's is a coward and a thief
He runs off with the ones you love, steals their memories
And when I visit Dad I see his distant eyes
And I know I'm just another face he doesn't recognize

 

He talks to Mom as though she's still around
But it's nearly 20 years now since we laid her in the ground
He wouldn't be this safe, if he were living on his own
But the trouble is.. he thinks he'll soon be home

 

And he talks of how she's waiting for him there
With her Mona Lisa smile,
And her Judy Garland hair
Says she's busy in the kitchen, makin' supper on the stove
And the trouble is: he thinks he'll soon be home

 

I'll spare you all the grief of when he died
Suffice to say I kissed his cheek goodbye, then I cried
I knew that soon I'd lose him, but if the truth were known
The trouble is..
Yeah, the trouble is..
I lost him years ago

 

Though it goes against what common sense says happens to our souls
The trouble is.. I know he made it home

 

And he held her in his arms when he got there
Kissed her Mona Lisa smile,
Touched her Judy Garland hair
They had supper in the kitchen, got caught up around the stove
Oh, it goes against my common sense,
I know

 

The trouble is..
The trouble is..
The trouble is..
I know he made it home.

Temple Of The Singers

 

Music/lyrics Steve Ison

 

They’re dreaming their way through a desperate life,

they’re getting plucked out of the air
There’ll never be room in the place they’re at
they’ve just gotta be everywhere

Temple of the singers
Breathe out ,relax,enjoy
& every note’s for you love
about a girl & boy


They’re running back home with a broken heart
& shutting their door to the world
They’re lighting the candles through streaming eyes
& praying one day they’ll be heard

Temple of the singers
Breathe out ,relax,enjoy
& every note’s for you love
about a girl & boy


Oh-oh You’re hooked on a line they’re singing
Oh-oh You’re feeling the hurt they’re bringing…
…‘cos life haunts you too

You wanna shake it when they’re hot
You think they’re naked though they’re not,
‘cos underneath they look a lot like you
You’re always wanting something more,
but don’t know what you’re looking for

Skip every song before it’s halfway through

Temple of the singers
Breathe out ,relax,enjoy
& every note’s for you love
about a girl & boy

I always admire when people post single take facebook videos of their songs.  There is something quite vulnerable about throwing a video out there, not to mention dealing with the imperfections.  Anyway, I thought I'd give it a shot this month.  I didn't know how to use my normal microphone/compressor setup with a video, so this is just a usb mic I had laying around.  It took a couple tries, and it is obviously far from perfect... but here is what I came up with.  As always, any feedback or tips are appreciated (here or pm)... I'm always looking to improve!

 

 

Fighter's Eyes

 

you can do it all
i see in your eyes
 
you see the world unbound
you freely hear the sound
while staring at the clouds
back pressed on the ground
 
may your heart never tire
head hold the crown
in pursuit of desire
ya, the jungle'll pull you down
 
so walk through the valley head held high
at the base of the mountain hold ever true
your fighters eyes
 
ready to dive
poised to strike
 
you'll hold your values tight
you'll fight for targets in your sights
when faced opposition
on the other side
 
may your heart never tire
head hold the crown
in pursuit of desire
ya, the jungle'll pull you down
 
so walk through the valley head held high           
at the base of the mountain hold ever true
your fighters eyes
 
ya, walk through the valley head held high           
at the base of the mountain don't ever lose
your fighters eyes

Only Love Will Rescue Me

 

I'm broken,
Inside,
Caught up in the weeds where salvation just withers and dies.
It echoes,
Your voice,
Through this empty house that we once dreamed of filling with noise.
 
I sit outside alone at night,
I drink 'till I don't feel my heart.
And I get lost in memories.
It won't be wine, or healing time,
That stops me from falling apart.
Only love will rescue me.
 
Still working,
Still tired,
Still wake every day to amazement I haven’t been fired.
 
Stood in a line, I sell my time
And silently work to the bone
With only dreams for company
Long hard days, and take-home pain
That don't help me feel I belong
Only love will rescue me.
 
Been planning,
Escape,
A pact we both made when our world was in much better shape.
 
I sit outside alone at night,
And drink so I don't hear my heart,
Your ghost so close I almost see.
Cold hard steel, is all I feel,
This world will not keep us apart.
Only love will rescue me.
 
Come on love and rescue me.

Bacon Cheeseburger 

By JOe and Peavey the Cat.

 

Peavey the Cat has made many appearances in my live videos over the years. This one was his last. He passed away 2 days after this. He was with me almost 17 years. He will be greatly missed. 

 

(Vs)

I love to to chew on your bacon strip

Dip my fry in your mayo dip

Wipe that ketchup off of my chin

Lick your mustard before I dig in

 

(Pre)

I love the way you feel in the palm of my hands 

Perfect buns you’re my meal plan 

 

(Ch)

I love you like 

Like I love 

Love the taste 

Of a bacon cheeseburger 

 

(Vs)

I love you moist with a little pink

Perfecy maters I cannot think

Quench my thirst with something wet

Nibble your cheese I’m not done yet

 

(Pre)

I love the way you feel in the palm of my hands

Perfect buns you’re my meal plan 

 

(Ch)

I love you like

Like I love 

Love the taste 

Of a bacon cheeseburger 

 

(Br)

I’ll eat you at a restaurant I’ll eat you at home

I’ll eat you in the kitchen when we’re all along

I’ll eat you in a stadium or at the park

I’ll eat you in the daylight or after dark

 

(Ch)

“Starry-Eyed”
Words & Music By Tom Tognaci


https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13477461


She trampled on the moon
As her tears fell in its light
With eyes shadowed in gloom
Oh, how she loathed its lonely sight

But, how many nights did she plead to that ole moon
She lifted her prayers for that gentle face to find her soon
But, he never came…..

She knew nothing about love
She was just a lonely girl
Who asked that moon above
To help her find love in this world

Yes, how many nights did she plead to that ole moon
She lifted her prayers for that gentle face to find her soon
But, he never came…..
No, he never came……

Well, that moon came tumbling down
And proposed upon its knees
But, the star she thought she found
Turned out to be merely cheese

But, how many nights did she plead to that ole moon
She lifted her prayers for that gentle face to find her soon
But, he never came…..
No, he never came……
No, he never came……

One more day to vote! I’m taking votes til midnight tomorrow, and I’ve heard from all but 2 of our entrants. I’ll be on the road tomorrow and for the rest of the week but will post the winners from my cell phone. What could possibly go wrong????

Special congratulations go to our February 1+1 top scorers:

 

The S, Sweeter Side of Somber

Paul Canuck, The Trouble Is....

And a tie for third place between

Murphster, Only Love Will Rescue Me

And

Ironknee, Starry Eyed

 

Every song entered made it into someone’s top four.

 

Bare-bones announcement here, can’t do colors and font sizes on my phone. This would be a month to do it up big, though, with such a terrific crop of sparsely arranged beauties. And several voters commented that they’d like to have voted for more than four entries. If that’s you, it would be great to mention the ones here in this thread, that you liked, and why. The more entries we have, the more top scorers I can announce. The top third plus one. 

 

Many thanks to our non-contestant judges: Mose, DonnaMarilyn, tunesmith, Art1108, and Short Order Kook, for taking the time and trouble of listening, picking your top four, and sending those picks to me. Good on you, guys!

Well done, all!  Congratz to the winners :D  I agree that it was really hard to pick 4.  I honestly enjoyed listening to each one.

I was toggling back and forth on Starry-Eyed and Outside the Box as a pick for this one. Then part of me was saying, "Freakin' Cheeseburger, man! Do it! That's the one you want!!" Tough decision! Murphster however was an easy choice for me. (I say because he's tied.) That was an incredibly passionate and intimate song. 

 

Good job all around, guys. Some fantastic music!

Congratulations! ;) I'm pleased that two of my picks made the cut (The S and Murphster). Every single song was a treat to listen to. Bacon Cheeseburger was one of my four. It cracked me up. Totally over-the-top. Witty and naughty but without being tacky. If I could have picked five, Mike's Peace and Love would have been it. Good, tight story-telling, and very fine guitar. But again, each song had something outstanding about it, and a selection is always subjective.

It wasn't an easy month to score at all. Well I will be honest and say that The Sweeter Side of Somber was probably a bit of a no-brainer, a perfectly crafted song that sounded really nice. Definitely my pick for best song here.

 

I decided in the end to vote on whether I actually would pit it in my playlist on a lazy Sunday morning and therefore, unfortunately it needed to be the kind of song I would usually listen to. I couldn't really think of a better way to judge such a tight contest.

 

So meant I didn't actually include Paul's song in my top four, which wasn't an easy decision because it has really beautiful, and such well written, lyrics that did bring a tear to my eye. The song intself just wasn't my cup of tea. I feel bad now and am really pleased that it scored so highly.

 

I also enjoyed HoboSage's effort, a voice that often reminds me of Jack Black for some odd reason. And Cheeseburger was naughty and fun.

 

In the end I went with Ironknee, Triffid and ScenesfromPalacio. All of them easy listening guitar songs that were nicely structured and performed. 

 

Temple of the Singers is worth highlighting as a song that did something a little different, I would love to hear it as a fuller production. It was really interesting and I think it would be greatly improved with a band behind it.

 

Great competition. Thanks for those you gave me a vote, I am so pleased that it touched some people, made my day.

 

Thanks to everyone who voted and participated and thanks Joan for organising.

It was a close call for my #1 song. The S’s song sounded great and is something I would normally listen to. Paul C’s song isn’t something I would normally listen to. But it just did something to me. I remember sitting on the swing with my Grandma here in Wisconsin like we often did. My last memory of us sitting on the swing is my Grandma saying “I wonder what the weather is like up in Wisconsin” She must’ve thought she was still in Chicago where she grew up. Anyway, Paul’s song gave me goosebumps and almost brought tears to my eyes. So I had Paul at 1. The S. at 2

Hobo got my 3 spot. Could’ve easily been 1. I’m just a huge fan of David’s guitar based songs. I love everything about them. Great guitar and vocal performances along with excellent production. Nobody does it better. I often wonder why he wasn’t/isn’t a professional musician. 

 Mike B was my 4 pick. I just thought it was a really cool song. I also have a liking to live one take, no production lo fi videos. Nice job Mike!  😀

 

Thanks for the freakin’ Bacon Cheeseburger comments. 😀  I love writing songs like this. It was also the last video appearance of my amazing cat Peavey 🐱 

 

Thanks Joan!

Wow - humbled to do so well in that line-up of great songs.

Congrats to The S - a well deserved win - what a super song and performance :)

I also especially liked Ironknee's, scenes' and hobo's entries.

But all were fantastic IMHCO.

Big thx to Joan for hosting :)

Alright, since it's score "confession time" :P I'll do my duty: 


I found The Sweeter Side of Somber to be an easy pick for me. S, your music is freakin’ amazing. I love you, dude. If you were playing locally, I would be there. 

 

The Trouble Is… got a vote. PaulC doesn’t write the kind of music I tend to listen to, but I don’t for a minute doubt his musicianship. He’s got my respect. This was another good one by him. 

 

Murphster’s Only Love Will Rescue Me, like I mentioned before, got a vote. 

 

Temple of the Singers I want to mention because I tend to dig Steve’s music and kinda assumed this would get a vote. But I’m sorry to say I didn’t make it one of the four! :( It was a great song, but I just leaned towards others in the contest this time. 

 

Instead I think I gave the fourth vote to Hobosage, although I nearly gave it to Ironknee. Close, that one. Actually I had a hard time all in all choosing a fourth and even asked Joan if three were enough, heh. 

 

 

But I really loved listening to all of these, seriously. Great stuff, all around, everyone.

Wow!  What an awesome group of songs!  Congrats to the winners!!  Here are my comments:

 

Sweeter Side of Somber:  Awesome, to the no-question level!  It is hard to comment further.  Well done!  


The Trouble Is:  Well Paul the lyrics hit the mark on this one.  I'd like to see the melody
branch out a bit more in terms of being exploratory but one can't deny the painful relevance
of the topic (the family of Yours Truly included). But it was treated in a straight-forward yet
dignified manner.


Temple of the Singers:  I think the thing that sets this one apart from your previous work is the
percussive acoustic rhythm of the solo guitar.  But I also marvel at your stamina for uniqueness!

 

Peace and Love:  Lovely lovely lovely guitar work! The story, although literal, is great because it has
some addresses some conflicted issues.  


Fighter's Eyes:  I dig the drawn out notes of the opening melody cast against the slightly
more complex rhythm.  Bravo for the 1-take video  (Even after hours and hours of practice on
a song I have never ever ever been able to do that!)


Only Love Will  Rescue Me:  I love the minor chords following the major intro - right before
 the lyrics - surprisingly refreshing!  The stop-start delivery of the descriptive, yet a t the same
time abstract, lyrics is tasteful - and at points poignantly humorous (..haven't been fired).
 

Bacon Cheeseburger:  Oh I'm hearing grunge right out of the box on this one and it is cool!  Yes, the melody is
a bit familiar but I was soooo hoping that the song would sound like it was supposed to be
be about a significant other but really be about a cheeseburger.  But it sounds like it was
really about a significant other.  However, I think that singing a truly raunchy song once in
a while is good to shake up the stiff neckties of the world!

 

Outside the Box:  Oh I remember this one - and to my ears .... it is still .... AWESOME!!  Yes, yes
 all of the is subjective, and I will always be melody-first over lyrics - but I really
REALLY like the melody and your attentive delivery of the melody, where (in my mind) the lyrics
can be used as a vehicle for the melody (even if the lyrics are awesome - that's the subjectivity
creeping in) I should also mention I really like the super-sweet guitar playing.

 

Starry Eyed:   Great great guitar work as usual!  Reminds me very much of John Denver.  I love the delay (stop time?)
before the initial instance of line "...but he never came" - it is a nice temporal surprise.  It's a great
song with complex-sounding fingerpicking.  The bit about the moon being cheese is some fun/melancholy, if slightly
archaic humor. Well done.

 

Cheers,

Pete

CONGRATS TO THE S & PAUL..... 

...and to everyone who entered with such great songs!!

Thanks to Joan for running these very rare 1+1's......I just love'm :wub:

And thanks to all the voters (especially those who included me in their folly)

 

Let me start with stating my rebellion against the simple pick of songs :o

In this particular comp, even more so, I didn't appreciate not being able to differentiate between the subtle differences of the songs. My top 4, and the songs I was not able to recognize, had only little to fractional point differences that separated themselves from each other.

With that said, and the given field,  I simply love The S's song.......because of the ridiculously beautiful recording of that envious (I must admit) guitar work....WOW.

Steve's song is Fabulous..........really like the listen.

I did like Mike B's song...the lyric was a good write. Good stuff! Paul's tune was depressing....but I included it because of it's craftsmanship.....;)

 

RoadDog's songs always seems to have a lyrical slant that tickles.............good one!

 

Anyways................most of all these songs barely have a point or two separating them. All the songs were entertaining.

Triffid.....Murphster.......Onewholovesrock......HoboSage..............congrats for bringing a good tune!!

What an honor to be up there with Paul's song! I can only agree with many of you, there was one song in the field that moved a lot of us, what more can you ask of a song? Truly a great piece of music Paul, and of course, that was also one of my picks. I had two I was sure of, The trouble is and Ironknee's Starry eyed. After that is where it got tricky for me, picking only 4 turned out to be a real challenge. I swear, I think all of the songs at one point made my top 4, but I could not decide on which two that would join The trouble is and Starry-eyed.

 

I agree with Ironknee, the songs this month were not miles apart, far from it, but it had to be done. In the end I went with RoadDog and Mike B. I liked those two songs from the get go.

 

Thanks to all of you for the very kind words. Hearing that some of you guys like and enjoy what I'm doing is the best, I mean, my wife is dead tired of hearing my songs as she's around for the whole songwriting process and get to hear them a thousand times, so this is about the only place where I get feedback. So again, thank you so much. Means a lot. :)

 

And a big thanks to Joan for hosting.

 

/Peter

I agree with most everything that's been said so far.  Everyone that entered should be proud of what they submitted.  It was a strong field of songs.  Like someone said earlier, in the end, I picked the top 4 that I could listen to again and again--largely a matter of personal taste.  I also thought they all had some great originality to them either with song structure, rhythm or instrumentalization.  My top four were (in no particular order):

Thanks all for sharing your songs!

My top 4 this time -Thanx for the nice comments on my song & thanx so much to Joan for running this

 

Paul Cannock - Always a joy to hear such excellent musicality n melodicism..I'm not actually a massive fan of the lyric..Not because its not well done -or obviously personal -its just the aesthetic..The word "Alzheimers" grates  in a song for me...Thought this was strong enough to win, to even transcend the very strong bias here at the muse musically toward Americana..

 

Murphster - Glad to see this did better than i thought...Really enjoyable track with sweet melody & some evocative chord changes..Really like the little pauses in the vocal at the beginning..Nicely quirky..Very cool song

 

The S - Sounds like a lost track from Blood On The Tracks..The Dylan influence is very pervasive..Very difficult not to be influenced by your brilliant presentation n performance (always)...Nice dusty roadtrip song tho

 

Ironknee - The descending picking chord patterns definitely reminds me of very early Simon n Garfunkel..This is an enjoyable easy listening song with a well crafted lyric..You present your songs really well for a 1+1 too

 

For fun, i thought i'd send Joan my predictions of how the results would pan out..Gonna do this for all the competitions now n see how close i get..Taking into account presentation,muse stylistic preferences,recording quality, instant understandableness of lyric,vocal timbre n (last but not least) songwriting..Gotta stress this list has nothing to do with my taste but just how i thought  the results would pan...

Well... you must be quite satisfied that I was correct in predicting I would not be in the top 4 this month... not even top 6 if you ask me :D:lol:  

 

FWIW, since everyone else posted their top 4... I had:

 

Sweeter Side of Somber

Only Love Will Rescue Me

Temple Of The Singers

Outside the Box

 

With "The Trouble Is..." being very close and would probably been a tie for 3rd for me had we used scoring.

I'm surprised Fighter's Eyes wasn't in the top 4, it was my favorite, but goes to show my picks never seem to match the end results.

Aw, Thanks, JOe!  :)  While I typically do dig your live 1+1's, I confess I remember the killer tunes you used to record with a drummer on your  - Korg recorder?  Any chance you'll get back to that?  Do you miss that?  I was always jealous that you had a good drummer at your disposal.  Truth be told, that was one factor getting me off my ass to figure out how to effectively use drum loops so I could move beyond 1+1's to full productions like your stuff. 

 Korg D3200. Yeah there’s a chance. Yes I miss having produced songs. My Korg was holding me back with file sharing and whatnot. So I stopped using it hoping to find a more updated solution.  Something with basically no computer issues and easy to use without breaking the bank. So now I enjoy writing and performing. I use the phone so I have a record of the songs. Hoping to someday pick the good ones and record production versions.

Bacon Cheeseburger 

By JOe and Peavey the Cat.

 

Peavey the Cat has made many appearances in my live videos over the years. This one was his last. He passed away 2 days after this. He was with me almost 17 years. He will be greatly missed. 

 

(Vs)

I love to to chew on your bacon strip

Dip my fry in your mayo dip

Wipe that ketchup off of my chin

Lick your mustard before I dig in

 

(Pre)

I love the way you feel in the palm of my hands 

Perfect buns you’re my meal plan 

 

(Ch)

I love you like 

Like I love 

Love the taste 

Of a bacon cheeseburger 

 

(Vs)

I love you moist with a little pink

Perfecy maters I cannot think

Quench my thirst with something wet

Nibble your cheese I’m not done yet

 

(Pre)

I love the way you feel in the palm of my hands

Perfect buns you’re my meal plan 

 

(Ch)

I love you like

Like I love 

Love the taste 

Of a bacon cheeseburger 

 

(Br)

I’ll eat you at a restaurant I’ll eat you at home

I’ll eat you in the kitchen when we’re all along

I’ll eat you in a stadium or at the park

I’ll eat you in the daylight or after dark

 

(Ch)

 

 

 

 

Nice one. Very original and fun song.  I would have had yours in my top 3 but I forgot to vote.  So sorry to hear about your kitty.
