What a freaking DELIGHTFUL song

I get so happy whenever this cheesy old tune comes on the radio.

It also reminds me of our "Misheard Lyrics" conversations at the bookstore (which we had often.)

Melanie: He's saying..."I'm not talking 'bout leavin'...

Me: But WHY would he be saying 'leavin'...the song's about getting too serious...of course he's not talking about leavin'...

Mike: No! He's saying..."I'm not talking 'bout your linen..."

Melanie: Because that REALLY makes sense.

Me: Actually, it kinda does...like, he's not talking about their linen...about getting so serious that they'd get married, and she'd change her last name and the monograms on her towels...so he doesn't want to move THAT fast.

(And then Brian entered and said that he always thought "Bette Davis Eyes" was "She's Got Better Days than Nights.")












I'd Really Love To See You Tonight

(England Dan & John Ford Coley)

Hello, yeah, it's been a while.
Not much, how 'bout you?
I'm not sure why I called,
I guess I really just wanted to talk to you.
And I was thinking maybe later on,
We could get together for a while.
It's been such a long time,
And I really do miss your smile.

I'm not talking 'bout moving in,
And I don't want to change your life.
But there's a warm wind blowing,
The stars are out, and I'd really love to see you tonight.

We could go walking through a windy park,
Or take a drive along the beach.
Or stay at home and watch t.v.
You see, it really doesn't matter much to me.

I'm not talking 'bout moving in,
And I don't want to change your life.
But there's a warm wind blowing,
The stars are out, and I'd really love to see you tonight.

I won't ask for promises,
So you won't have to lie.
We've both played that game before,
Say I love you, then say goodbye.

I'm not talking 'bout moving in,
And I don't want to change your life.
But there's a warm wind blowing,
The stars are out, and I'd really love to see you tonight.
