Description
Short Song Description:
A fun little ditty about a slightly disfunctional relationship.
Long Song Description:
A shallow look at a strange relationship that kind of evolved through each partner putting the other down. Funny how that sometimes ends up working out.
Story Behind the Song:
Had some friends over for a jam and this little tune came out of the fun. Nothing real important here just some fun.

Lyrics
Ballad of He & She

He was a mid-aged romeo
told he she was pretty
She said, "Oh, really?
How would you konw?"
He spoke of money
wrapped his arms around her
She slapped him in the face
and told him where to go.

And then she walked out the door
Never gonna go back there anymore
Never gonna let on that she was more
Than he had ever hoped she could be,
Than he had ever hoped she could be.

She ran a two o'clock spot
full of smoke and whiskey
She said, "It's risky,
but then it's a life."
He walked in the door
drank a shot of bourbon
kissed her on the lips
and dropped her on the floor.

And then he walked out the door
Never gonna go back there anymore
Never gonna let on that he was more
Than she had ever hoped he could be.
Than she had ever hoped he could be.

Instrumental

They met in the cafe
drinking cups of coffee
She told him off
and he took her by the arm.
He swept her off her feet
told her that he loved her
She said, "Oh really, I knew all along."

And then they walked out the door
Never gonna go back there anymore
Never gonna let on that they were more
Than we had ever hoped they could be.
Than we had ever hoped they could be.
