1. If Music is Love Expressed...

If music is love expressed

Then I’m screwed

‘Cause all I ever want to want

To love

Is You-

 

My notes fall flat

On the ears that receive them,

Sharp pains to my audience

Who start to start leaving.

When I pick up a tune

I picked up someone else’s-

Have to put it down and start again without it.

 

If music is love expressed

Then I’m screwed

‘Cause all I ever want to want

To love

Is You-

 

Your scales are smooth both ways,

Mine are painful to touch

Your solos made a hobo

Get up and dance on his crutch.

My theory amounts to ABCDE

Your minors are majors

Expressed enharmonically-

 

 

 

 

My brain is one tone short of a Phrygian mode,

Your brain juggles all of this while set on overload-

My piano is forte,

My FFF is FFFlat.

I barely have two coppers in my busker’s hat

 

If music is love expressed

Then I’m screwed

‘Cause all I ever want to want

To love

Is You-

 

My crescendos decrease,

My dynamics are static.

You impro so fast your fingers seem erratic.

You look like a musician,

I sound like Justin B.

The only scale I could ever learn was C.

 

In short you are my blues note.

The thing I fall back on to make me sound clever-

When I tell my friends I know a real-life music player…

In truth I love you-

So if music is love expressed…

Let’s not finish with a rhyme-

You and me, next Thursday,

At the Odeon- they’re showing Spinal Tap.
