Please stop me if I'm posting songs too frequently, but I'm on a roll. It's so unlike me to write songs about the most superficial and outward aspects of relationships, but after a friend showed me a girl's long list of "deMANds" in a personal ad, I couldn't pass something like this up. And besides, my buddy C.J. said that I need to write more funny songs, and this is, if not funny, at least kind of snarky and cute. It's a really upbeat and super-poppy tune. This is a huge departure for me, so if it didn't exactly work out, let me know, I can take it. CRIT4CRIT, per usual.


Don't Waste Your Time on Me

Verse:
The things are too num'rous to mention
That mankind can do with its hands
And you'd want to waste all that talent
Fulfilling your list of demands

All I wanted was a companion
But you want a servent at best
I gave out time and compassion
But you even still weren't impressed

Pre-chorus:
If you want men doing your bidding
As far as those green eyes can see

Chorus:
Don't waste your time on me x2

Verse:
Well, I dream of love and of passion
But those cheap things don't suit you well
I live in a basement apartment
You do too but you'd never tell

You'd think that you live in a mansion
Bought for you by part time boys
You say that beards are repulsive
And folk music brings you no joy

Pre-Chorus:
And if you want a foreign car
Driven faster than it need be

Chorus:
Don't waste your time on me X2

Bridge:
If you want my ears to listen
I think that that I can do
A car for your transportation
Well I think I can do that too
If you want flowers every so often
And someone to open up doors
If you need a heart to hang onto
Well, I can do all that and more

Pre-Chorus:
But if you want more like a door matt
To scrape off your dust and debris

Chorus:
Don't waste your time on me x4
