That day again, already...by james robert

it was high noon on valentine's day
and all through the house
there wasn't much astirring
save maybe a mouse

oh, i had loves aplenty
for most of my years
but i ran faster than they
with a case of the "fears"

i was looking for something
only i could give
in the self-love arena
i leaked like a sieve 

mother teresa herself
would have been at a loss
if we had gone acourtin
she would've took to the sauce

oh hell, i had my moments
maybe more than my share
i loved not wisely nor too well
when i dared to venture there

if it is better to have loved and lost
than to never have loved at all
than i am here to tell everyone
that it was well worth the fall

Would ja...by james robert

Would ja still love me
if I ate crackers in bed,
and started wearing a hat
where once was hair on my head?

Would ja still call me your main squeeze,
and seldom call me late for brunch?
I'd like to think you would,
but it may be just a hunch.

Would you always think of me,
as your lover and best friend;
if it took a small pup tent
 just
to cover my west end?

Would ja think any less of me,
if I didn't have a dime,
and for reaching my true potential,
it was more than way past time?

As we approach Valentine's Day,
these are things a guy must know.
If you're looking for perfection,
then I think you'd better go!

Oh yeah, it's your apartment. Never mind!
Happy Valentine's Day...
