"NOT MY TYPE" Copyright 2017 M.Healey

Seven years together
I said, "You should be my wife"
She said I'll think it over
I'll let you know to-night
When I got home that evening
Saw a letter in the light
Dear John I love you honey
But you're just not my type

Not my type
You're not my type
When I'm thinkin' I can't lose
The opposite comes true
That line will haunt my life
You're not my type
You're not my type

Saw some ladies on the corner
Posing under a red light
Wearing mini skirts and fishnets
Boots reaching to the thigh
So I flashed me a Benjamin
Hoping hook would take a bite
But they laughed into my face
Sayin' you ain't no one's type

Not my type
You're not my type
When I'm thinkin' I can't lose
The opposite comes true
That line will haunt my life
You're not my type
You're not my type

Tried an online dating service
Gave the info didn't lie
I checked that thing for weeks
Didn't get...not one reply
I'm resigned to be a bachelor
Mr. Right? I ain't that guy

Not my type
You're not my type
When I'm thinkin' I can't lose
The opposite comes true
That line will haunt my life
You're not my type
You're not my type

Still there's a chance someday
I may hear someone say
Hey I think you're ok
Even though....
You're not my type

Not my type-you're not my type-
That line will haunt my life
What's that mean anyway?
Not my type!
Huh....

Looks catchy to me.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Funny song. The sort of self-deprecating ditty that would go down well live to a small crowd in a bar setting.

I'll chime in here, too, 9ne. A clever song with some really clever lines throughout. Would definitely like to hear how this fun lyric translates into song.

All the best,

Deej

Glad you found the time to chime Deej! Those are some kind words you left me. I'm always working on music to a number of songs, it would be nice if this one comes together.
Thanks again!

This one does read as a loser's odyssey. Not bad, though, as the story is all too common. And I am one who has heard that line a number of times in his own life. But I imagine women hear the same thing from men as well. Not sure anymore, though, that the legend of men turning women down who don't have that hourglass figure is as true as its legend would have us believe. A male buddy I had many years ago once told me that the less beautiful are less likely to play hard to get; that the truly beautiful know they have their looks going for them and are less likely to settle. But there were more at that time who were satisfied if the other person had qualities X, Y, and Z. Now they seem to want you to have A through Z before giving you the time of day. And it isn't always that holy trinity of lots of money, killer good looks and designer clothes. Does seem more difficult to be the true "ladies' man" here in the twenty-first century. The term now seems to be quite derogatory. Do think this subject line would make a great song should you decide to take it to the next level. Do think that some of the increased selectivity can be laid at the feet of wanting to make sure that everyone involved knows any possible risks associated with taking on a potentially risky endeavor. Have said many times that today's womanhood is often willing to take risks in other areas of their lives but not so much in their social lives anymore. Was entirely different back when I first came of age.

Well said Beech! I'm dismayed that someone used that term against you, but I can assure you, the real loser is one who references another person in that manner. Who knows what a person's situation, history etc. may be. I've always said there's three sides to a story: mine, yours, and the truth.
Thank you for a very thoughtful post; I certainly appreciate you stopping by.
-Mike
