Song for the Soundtrack of Your Date (No Date) Tonight

Song for the Soundtrack of Your Date Tonight

The official date night lyrics re-write of “Love the One You’re With.” (Except you can’t really sing them to Stephen Still’s song. Follow along anyway).

“If you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with.” 

Here goes:

If you can’t be with the one you love
Maybe baby, it ain’t the one you love
Love wants to see you, be with you
Love says, “Let’s do this” and does it
Keep investing in the one you think you love
And you’ll miss the one who really loves you
Stop staring at the door of disappointment tonight, honey
There’s a big bright opening right in front of you
The person behind it ain’t who you thought it would be

Wait. Whoa. What??
Wait. Whoa. What??
Wait. Whoa. What??

Let down your hair and open your heart

[Preservation Hall Jazz Band "Sweet Substitute" New Orleans Preservation, Vol. 1, 2009]

Song for the Soundtrack of Your No Date Tonight

Memories haunting you? You best be getting you a sweet substitute. Like agave nectar instead of refined white sugar. Something that’s just as sweet, even in small doses. And more natural. Unrefined and uncomplicated. Save your energy. Use that power for someone else. Replace that bad actor who steps on your mind stage every time the lights go down. Hold a casting call. Dust off your casting couch. You gotta turn over a lot of cushions to find pay dirt. Get dirty. Get down. Get down tonight and every night. Best way to get over an old flame is to get under a new one. Light ‘er up.

[Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris “Those Memories of You” Trio, 1987]

    Dear Leslie,

    Please do not go on vacation again. Dave’s lips give me nightmares.

    Thank you!

    Dear Michael,

    I am deeply sorry for any pain I may have caused you. It will not happen again…well, at least not without Dave getting a face wax first.

    Yours truly,

    Leslie

    That’s nothing compared to what your mom’s lips do to me.
