Sing to your choice of blues tune, in honor of Valentine’s Day

He was a tall drink of water

with a short mustache

long on promises

and short on cash.

 

How much is left

when I do the math?

Don’t even have the bubbles

for a bubble bath.

 

Thought he was so perfect,

thought he was so right,

but a thought ain’t the thing

that keeps you warm at night.

 

He told me I was pretty,

he told me I was smart.

He handed me a line

when he handed me his heart.

 

The next thing I knew

my head was a-whirl

‘cause that man of mine

found another girl.

 

I had to move on

‘cause he disappeared.

He was a long time coming

and a short time here.

 

He was a tall drink of water

with a short mustache

long on promises

and short on cash.
