Story behind the song
There are so many songs where people talk about being willing put give up body parts, step in front of trains or bullets, climb mountains, swim seas, pay and price, etc., etc., in the name of love. I thought it might be refreshing, and funny, to say what we really do for love on a daily basis. (At least what I do for love on a daily basis. :-))
Lyrics
Non-Hyperbolic Love! I would walk a shopping aisle, Fight a plastic crocodile, Hear your rants and only smile, For your love. I would ache like normal men, Feed the cats at 5 pm, Mow the lawn just now and then, For your love! For your love, For your love, For your love, For your love! I won’t eat a handgrenade, What good would that be anyway, An end to all hyperbole, I confront reality: for your love I would boil the rice for you, I would be so nice to you, I would start the barbeque! For your love. I would watch the tube with you, Pretend that Trudeau has a clue, I would go for walks, it’s true! For your love! For your love, For your love, For your love, For your love! I would kill spiders, convert kilograms to pounds – again, watch Power and Politics, not kick the cats, do the dishes – at least load the dishwasher…
