Song for the Soundtrack of Your Date Tonight

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.

And they’re like, it’s better than yours.

Damn right, it’s better than yours.

I could teach you, but I’d have to charge.

[Kelis, ”Milkshake” Tasty, 2003]


Song for the Soundtrack of Your No Date Tonight

We always wish for money.

We always wish for fame.

We think we have the answers.

Something’s ain’t ever gonna change.

Chaaaaaaai-nge. It doesn’t matter who you are.

[John Waite, ”Change” Ignition, 1982]
