it’s pretty hard to shoot videos these days, because not all of my buddies have had both vaccinations yet and, worst of all, Maha is still in the hospital (but on a good way!).
Since we have some songs ready, but waiting for theirt corresponding videos to be shot, I thought I might meanwhile post one or two of them in advance - the videos will follow some day. Honey
This is another tune from the category “weird love songs“ - definitely designed to make you tap your toes and chuckle.
Thanks for taking the time to listen - hope you’ll enjoy it.
It was a hot summer day, last week of July,
looked outta my window, watched those girls walk by.
a-wiggling and a-giggling, having a good time,
Shaking their tail feathers in the warm suin’s shine
Watched some young boys, too, who were blatantly unhinged,
biting theit lips that looked already fringed
Their eyes were popping, their ears were twitching,
Their jaws were grinding and their teeth were itching.
In my younger days the sight of those butts,
would have driven me, too, completely nuts.
’cause I was a real bad boy, I confess.
But then I met my baby and found out that she’s as sweet as...
Honey, right out of the hive,
Honey, you’re the sweetest creature alive.
Of all the honeys that I’ve tasted you’re by far the sweetest,
So sweet my doctor warned me that you might cause diabetes.
Sugar, you’re sweet like a cane,
Sugar, your sweetness really drives me insane.
You’re sweeter than nougat or any kind of berries,
So sweet my dentist warned me that you might cause caries.
Passing that big news stand in the center of our town,
with hundreds of magazines, and if I don’t look down,
in that very minute it takes to pass it by,
I’ve seen morer naked women than my Dad in his whole life.
But their beauty’s only paper-thin, they got no sex appeal,
‘cause everything is photoshopped and nothing’s really real.
And with all that silicone that they’re carrying around,
No doubt it won’t take long and they’ll be backache bound.
But my baby’s beauty can be found in every cell,
years just don’t matter, she’s always looking swell.
She don’t need no silicone, no Botox and no wig.
She’s just sweet by nature and that’s her only trick.
Choclate, you’re sweeter than cream
Chocolate, the sweetest thing that I’ve ever seen.
Whenever you’re smiling you show those sweet dimples,
So sweet my dermatologist warned me you might cause pimples.
Candy, sweet as jelly beans,
Candy, it must be in your genes.
You’re as sweet as ice-cream, no you’re tasting even better,
with all that candy it’s no wonder that I’m getting fatter.
