Your Husband Doesn’t Have To Know


Holding hands

And walking through the park

Each other’s greatest fan

See the back door after dark

 

A careful ring

With a special tone

Oh, how you make my heart sing

Why must either one of us be alone

 

I know he got you

But he doesn’t make your love flow

Believe me when I say this much is true

Your husband doesn’t have to know

 

The way you slip in and out

Of the things you bought with his card

Make me love what this is all about

Can it get any more hard

 

Break my back

Make me lose my mind

Never treat you like some halftime snack

The deeper I go, I never know what I’ll find

 

Keep it tight, and keep it right

I can taste the flavor in the air

Don’t let your head put up a fight

I’ll cherish our time with tender loving care

 

I love to love you, baby

How else can I let my feelings show

I’ll keep it on the sneak tip, if you want me to

And darling, your husband doesn’t have to know

 

And if you have any doubt

Go ahead and tell him I’m just a friend

He’s the one with all the clout

But we know how this tale will end

Congratulations, Love


Congratulations, Love

I see your dreams have all come true

I remember the nights we sat up together

Creating a plan

Trying to figure out who was going to

be paid first

and how we could get an extension

for something else

it was tough

But we made it through

I remember the nights you would call

And tell me how your study group was all

getting together for drinks afterward

And if I could set your plate in the microwave

You couldn’t tell me what time you would be home

because you were trying to make a good impression

on your new friends

I remember the impression you made on me

Back then

I’ll never forget telling you I Love You

and feeling like the whole room you were in

was cheering me on

It didn’t matter that I couldn’t hear you

say it back

My My My how the years have gone by

Four years or 96 months

I don’t know how a mom would say it

You got your dream job

Your dream relationship, yeah I know her

Your dream car

Money

It took me eight months to figure out

your drawers were getting empty

And I understand she’s expecting

Man, you really have it all

I remember when we said we would be together

forever

For better or for worse

Anyone could imagine what came first

For me

Then again, it looks like you got the better

And now all your dreams have come true

I still remember the plan we made together

The passion we put into every action

But it was the action you put into your passion

that has got us here today

I want to thank you

I want to thank you

for teaching me how unselfish I have been

Knowing that I give all of me

And it’s okay to want something back

And it’s okay to want it back in someone else

But it’ll be okay

I’ll be okay

Wish you well

Oh, I do wish you both well

If what they say is true,

what comes around goes around

I’m glad we never were able to continue

the line you just started

I could never see a child of mine getting hurt

like I was

I don’t know what I would do

What’s even worse, you told her about me

Well, Congratulations

I’m really glad things worked out for you

 

P.S. Now it’s time to pay up

Boys And Their Diamonds

At one glance

He’ll take a chance

At being larger than life

What circumstance

It’s still romance

When he buys one for himself instead of a wife

 

Because

He likes the shine and the glare

That make people stare

He’s so rich having so much fun

Why take them off

Let ‘em gawk and scoff

Boys can wear diamonds

 

Maybe he’ll compensate

With a package

 that never comes too late

It’s easier to take anyway

Underneath it all

Who cares about a ball

When it’s the nut that makes her late

 

What they won’t do

To get close to you

If only they had the funds

it’s not just the brother

who forgets his lover, or mother

 who would try and smother

a boy who wear diamonds

 

At one glance

He’ll take a chance

And dream of visions of sugarplums

Not just for the girls

Grown ones in pigtails and curls

Make room for the boys who wear diamonds

Dance with the girl (instead of a woman married to a man)


 A pretty wallflower

She is

Smiling that smile against a wall

Just so it doesn’t fall

 

It doesn’t want to let her go

All it does is frown

She should be in the light

Where she can bring the house down

 

Everybody’s swayin’

And  lookin’ real nice

What a time for playin’

And for takin’ some real good advice

 

The ways of a loving world

Some may never understand

Take her hand, and dance with the girl

Instead of a woman married to a man

 

She’s got her ways

Her vows made her pure and true

With long nights and long days

Making love ain’t all you can do

 

What’s a man’s man

When she’s your number one fan

She’s got your back

So it takes a lot to stay on track

 

 She’s more than a diamond, more than a pearl

Made for the grandstand

Just remember to dance with the girl

Instead of the woman married to a man

 

 

This Love Story


 

Your hand feels so good in mine

So I was wondering

If we could stop wasting time

 

I don’t know if I could take you to Heaven

But I sure will try

I’ll be there for you like a 7-11

can you promise to never make me cry?

 

This Love Song

can’t ever be wrong

Just as long

as you keep me in your heart

And on your mind

this Love Song

can go on

for however long

you want it to

Just as long

as everyday for us is a brand new start

 

Can we go out on a date?

How about you bring me home late?

After holding on to each other on the roller-coaster

So what if

we burn each other’s toast In the toaster

 

I wouldn’t trade a minute

of the day

without you in it

How else could I play

out our love story on a piano

or guitar


These words could only go so far

without the melody

of you dancing

so carefree

Knowing you could never fall

as long as I’m your wall

 

Where you go

how can I not follow

Without your lead

my soul would be so hollow

 

You are the reason

my life can’t be wrong

I’m prepared for every season

cause you are this love song
