songs then and now

My internet service at home is down. I don't own a laptop so I'm going to attempt to post today via my phone.

A few weeks ago I finished a new song that I had beeb working on a for a few months. It took a few months because I'm lazy and undiciplined. As I was singing the bridge to the new song it reminded me (thematically) of a song I wrote years ago in Portland, OR. I now present both to you.

SOMETHING ABOUT HIM:
He never really knew me/I never knew what he was talking about/ We talked about talking/ We discussed hanging out.

(chorus)
there was something about him/not talking about how he couldn't spell his name/something something about him/And I'm not quite sure what it was.

We sat down had a couple of drinks/he had 12 more than 2/I thought he could brush his teeth/he kept on with his tabacco chew

(chorus)
there was something about him/not talking about how he passed all over town/...

(bridge)
his eyes were black/they matched his teeth/his grey hair was falling out/and his middle aged ass saaaggged

He never really knew me/I never knew what the fuck he was talking about/we talked about talking/we twice made out

yeah there was something about him/not talking about how he had no job/something something about him not talking how he had 5 roommates, not talking how he was a townie/ something about him or maybe something about me.

PRESIDENTIAL FITNESS (this one is a smidge racey)

Ooo you're so hard/ooo baby ooo baby/ I can see your little man could last all night/ too bad your body can't

(chorus)
because you're my/out of shape lover/out of shape out of shape lover

lift me up with all your might/hold me to the wall nice and tight/oh no there goes your back/falling to the floor like a sack/
lathargic on the bed you flop/I guess it's anothe night of me ontop/I'm energized and you're out of breath/Uh oh are those pains in your chest?
(chorus)
(bridge)
soooo disappointing/sooo disappointing/Idon't know why I keep coming back/ does internet dating suck that much/or do I just hate leaving the house/maybe there is something about him

how about exercise or a diet/ I don't dare suggest you try it/because the only thing weaker than your body/is that small and shoddy/ EGO

I guess that's why you're an out of shape lover/out of shape out of shape out of shape/LOOOVEEERRR
