Your cheatin’ heart is gonna tell on you — if that P.I. I hired doesn’t bust you first

His or Mine

Cheatin’… it ain’t always pretty.

Bad enough if it’s with some jet set pretty boy or sweet talkin’, movie star-handsome lothario with a two thousand dollar suit and a low slung sports car.

But when it’s an overweight pool guy or the middle-aged, balding fellow the mini-blind store sent out to measure the windows… well… it’s enough to send you back to the pre-nup with a magnifying glass and a legal dictionary.

About today’s version: I was feelin’ a little frisky when I cut this. It’s more than a bit of a mess but… well… I think by now we all know that tight and clean is not what AYoS is all about. The guitar and vocal on the left was the original track, I added another guitar, switching to a slide part way through, realized the original vocal was even more buried, decided to chip in another vocal track, and decided some of my patented, arhythmic percussion work would be the cherry on top of this hot fudge mishegaas.

lyrics
His or Mine

how come you love me
how come you hate me
how come you just won’t leave me a alone
did you ever have the notion
you ain’t gotta monopoply on emotion
honey can’t you tell my pain is real

honey come here put your hand on my heart
there’s a world of feelings trapped inside
look in my eyes
and tell me once and for all
honey make your mind up
are you his or mine

how come you love me
how come you hate me
how come I can’t tell them apart
where was your conscience
when your mind told my body
to make sure that your soul
had my heart

honey come here put your hand on my heart
there’s a world of feelings trapped inside
look in my eyes
and tell me once and for all
honey make your mind up
are you his or mine
(C)2007, TK Major

    Did I love thee? I only did desire to hold thy body unto mine and smite it with strange fire of kisses burning as a wine ~ George Moore Ah Love! Could thou and I with Fate conspire to grasp this sorry scheme of things entire; would not we shatter it to bits – and then remold it nearer to the Heart’s desire ~ Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
