I May Not Be The One For You
words and music by C. Stewart ( Oct 7, 2017 )

I may not be the one for you x 2
I've been around the block or two
I may not be the one for you

I brush my teeth in a gas station sink
Sniff my armpits, check for stink
Then I disappear from the camera flash
Long enough to take your cash

I may not be the one for you x 2
I've been around the block or two
I may not be the one for you

CHORUS......
I was raised in the city by a one eyed mother
And it was in the back of her head
My one eyed mothers middle name was Fred
I was raised in the city by a one eyed mother
And it was in the back of her head
And now my one eyed mother is dead
But I've still got that picture of her eyeball

Like a baby bird, trapped in the attic
My wings are broke and I'm an addict
And I'm always on the edge of crying
Cause just like Fred I know I'm dying

I may not be the one for you x 2
I've been around the block or two
I may not be the one for you
REPEAT CHORUS......

Like a baby bird, trapped in the attic
My wings are broke and I'm an addict
And I'm always on the edge of crying
Cause just like Fred I know I'm dying

I may not be the one for you x2
I've been around the block or two
I may not be the one for you

Does that mean it's over between you and me? Guess I shouldn't take it personally... Have you ever heard the song, "Don't Marry me " from "the King and I". Your song has better reasons for a non-relationship... I liked the rhythms and musical presentation. The rear facing eye was a creative touch. Best of luck ....Pete

Calvin,

This is weird, odd, unique, strange, creepy, and other things I can't quite put a finger on. But still I really, really like it. What does that say about me?

Regards,

Deej

Hi Calvin,

Had me smiling and laughing all the way through..the only thing I could think of to add would be a little melodic quote of the late great Curtis Mayfield's "Freddie's Dead."

You know what they say..in the land of the blind mothers, the one-eyed mother is queen.. wink

In the video in my head with this, after you sing "I may not be the one for you" I see your cartoon avatar doing a little tap dance synced up with that clip clop sound in your recording.

Love it. 5 stars. Original, imaginative, fun, and wacky.. smile

Mike

Calvin.
I hope your mother wasn't blind in one eye.
If not, she at least knew where she came from.

Another clever and amusing piece. :-)

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.

Hey Calvin,

What a "sweet" song..........this will be a popular wedding song IMO. Hey, I had one idea/sug for ya. Given the vibe, I thought it might be cool to on the 2nd lines to say to effect.....or conversely....."but I might be the one for you." Paradoxical & Calvinistic?

Cool timing of sound effects as usual.
