My Traditional Ode to Valentine’s Day

He Shoots Again

cupid’s arrow has done it again
just like a bull’s eye
it struck my heart
and made me love
he made me love
someone i can never have

oh, cupid is playing darts
with his bow and arrow
and my heart is the board
he shoots and he shoots some more
until my heart is sore
and he shoots again

i hear the laughter again
to him it’s just a game
there’s pleasure in my pain
and he made me love
he made me love
someone i’ll never have

without your help i can do just fine
please leave the choice up to me
look at all the pain you’ve caused
in all of history,
romeo and juliet, adam and eve
would have been just fine without you
why don’t you just leave?

and he shoots again
and he shoots again

he’s drunk on love’s passion
he’s crazy for love
he needs it, he wants it
he’ll take it ’til you’re sore
he’s just got to, got to
got to have more

and he shoots again

oh, cupid is playing darts
with his bow and arrow
and my heart is the board
he shoots and he shoots some more
until my heart is sore
and he shoots again

If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me today “What are you doing for Valentine’s Day?” I’d be able to take my husband & I  out to dinner tonight. Of course, my reply was, “Nothing.” We just don’t care about this fake holiday at all. Never have. We are so insanely lovey-dovey every single day of the year, why bother? I don’t like hearts or chocolate, I like flowers, but not because you NEED to buy them. Today, for us, is just a day like any other.

Of course that doesn’t stop me from posting the song lyrics I wrote in 1993. Heh. I just realized now that I had been trying to record this song on Garage Band in the fall to post this year and completely forgot. Oh, well. As it was I said to my coworker “Oh! You’re big gala is this weekend! It’s pretty dress time!” to which replied that St. Patrick’s Day was in a month.

Oops. I’m apparently in the wrong month. Go, me.

I thought perhaps I should post this for my dear friend Kyle who seems to have expressed some displeasure over today. This one’s for you, Bento!

    Normally I don’t mind V day although I don’t normally get into all the commercialism of it, but this year isn’t the best V day for me…so I am totally with you on just ignoring it…LOL
