I wrote 7-8 songs with J. Richard Wilcox (Richhoncho). He would send me a midi file with a melody line and I'd try to match lyrics to it. This is one demoed in the UK.

Last submission until I write a new song.

I Need All Three
(Rick Norton, J. Richard Wilcox)

I fell in love with April
Before I met Mae
When I caught a glimpse of June
She blew me away

I'm torn between three women
And the love they bring
Of all the four seasons
I must favor spring

April was so changeable
Mae warmed up to me
June got hot after a while
Could I keep all three

I'm not one to be greedy
I'm willing to share
I find it hard to decide
This choice is unfair

I need all three
They needed me

I've taken all my chances
So what happens next
Don't want to be a loser
Just like all the rest

April says that she loves me
Mae says she does too
And June says she adores me
That i always knew

I fell in love with April
Before I met Mae
When I caught a glimpse of June
She blew me away

I'm torn between three women
And the love they bring
Of all the four seasons
I must favor spring

I need all three
They needed me

I need all three

I've never added lyrics to a melody. It sounds difficult. However, you made it sound easy. Very good job.

Rick,

A very clever write. Not an easy thing to do - add lyrics to an existing melody. You did an incredible job of that...

The melody is nice and the recording very enjoyable.

Jim, Michael and L. James, thanks for the listen and comments.

Floyd and Dave,

I found it pretty easy to fit lyrics to a melody. The real trick is putting good lyrics to a melody. Sometimes a hook pops into your head on the first listen, sometimes its a struggle.

Rick
