about

Can you tell I like swing? Every once in a while I will attempt something that harkens back to the days before rock was born. Kelli Gonzalez gets the lead vocal here and does a great job. P.S. I just realized that I rhymed "nice" with "nice" in the bridge. For this embarrassing insult to everything Steven Sondheim stands for, I offer a 10% discount on the song!

lyrics

Build me a plane and make it fly
Up to heavens above the sky
Bring me a star when the night is through
Baby maybe then I'll love you

Go tell the ocean come to me
drop all your presents at my feet
you say you love me now prove it's true
Baby maybe then I'll love you

I got twice the lovin'
My lovin's twice as nice
All the girls (boys) are pushin' and shovin'
Beggin' for something nice

Throw your hat into my ring
but I won't promise you anything
You got show me what you can do
Baby maybe then I'll love you

I got twice the lovin'
My lovin's twice as nice
All the girls (boys) are pushin' and shovin'
Beggin' for something nice

You ain't the first and you ain't the ;ast
If you want my lovin' start workin' fast
Build me a castle in a sky of blue
Baby maybe then I'll love you
Baby maybe then I'll love you
Baby maybe then I'll love you
