Stay In Love

Copyright   Bod and Alpert  1979

 

I donít have much money

I just get paid the going rate

Iím working for us, honey

A life together is our fate

 

I hate this struggle more and more

Who do you think Iím living for

Stay in love Ė for my sake stay in love

 

All your friends are shaken

ĎCause youíre hooked up with a guy like me

My heartís been awakened

I see their point and I half agree

 

            Itís the oldest story in the world

           How the no-good guy gets the so-good girl

            Lord above, help her stay in love

 

                       I think itís tragic

                       Gee youíre so romantic

                       I donít know what to do

                       Letís stop all of our fussing and fighting

 

I donít have an answer

For why things work out the way that they do

But every dayís a chance to

Think about it and be with you

 

I hate this struggle more and more

Who do you think Iím living for

Stay in love Ė for my sake stay in love

 

Lord above, help her stay in love

 

 

You Canít Make Someone Love You

Copyright  M. Bod 2016

 

You sipped your bourbon last night

And even in the dim light of the bar

It was clear that you were crying

You tried to hold back your tears

As you whispered in my ear

That you swore your love for her is undying

 

Even though Ė we both know

That itís best that you let go

ĎCause she did long ago

 

Sometimes when love is so strong

You canít imagine that anything could ever

Possibly go wrong

But if loveís over and done

How long will you let it take to admit

That she isnít the one

 

So if she holds a piece of your heart

Leave her that part

Your new start is long overdue

And if you canít just be her friend Ė I recommend

That you move on and find someone new

Because you canít make someone love you

 

I shook my head when you said

You cry all night in your bed Ė over her

Iíd have thought that youíd know better

Her numberís still in your phone

Youíll never be, donít you know, as you were

She is gone Ė just forget her

 

Yes, itís so Ė we both know

That itís best that you let go

ĎCause she did long ago

 

Sometimes when love is so strong

You canít imagine that anything could ever

Possibly go wrong

But if loveís over and done

How long will you let it take to admit

That she isnít the one

 

So if she holds a piece of your heart

Leave her that part

Your new start is long overdue

And if you canít just be her friend Ė I recommend

That you move on and find someone new

Because you canít make someone love you

 

So if she holds a piece of your heart

Leave her that part

Your new start is long overdue

And if you canít just be her friend Ė I recommend

That you move on and find someone new

Because you canít make someone love you

 

No, you canít make someone love you

Stay In School             

Copyright   Bod and Alpert 1980

 

I canít quite put my finger on it

I donít feel like I really belong

I thought when youíre well-taught

That nothing can go wrong

 

I lived well when I was a student

I made plans and Iíd follow them through

No doubt how theyíd turn out

I knew just what to do

 

           Now it seems that Iím lacking direction

            Someone chart me a mid-course correction

            If Iíd ask my guidance counselor

I know heíd say, ďStay in school.Ē

 

You donít use everything they teach you

In no time you forget what youíve learned

Who cares if itís unfair

Itís no cause for concern

 

            You can cut an occasional class

           When youíve something better to do

            Pass your tests and donít ask questions

            Itís so easy Ė stay in school

 

                       What do you have to do to feel like a success

                       A job from 9 to 5 might make your life a mess

                       You canít determine your future with a prayer and a guess

                       My own peers think the choice is clear

                       The time will soon come

To make a decision

 

I donít feel like Iím getting older

I just feel like Iím losing control

I donít eat and I canít sleep

Regret will take its toll

 

Iíve got plenty of motivation

I work hard - my intensions are pure

What more could you ask for

I thought Iíd feel secure

 

            I donít know where my next meal will come from

            I donít know just how long I can go on

           Maybe I should seek employment

            My old man says, ďStay In School.Ē

 

           Everyone is such an expert

They all tell me, ďStay in SchoolĒ

 

They tell me, ďStay in SchoolĒ

They tell me, ďStay in SchoolĒ

They tell me, ďStay in SchoolĒ

 

Love Is Like Chocolate

Copyright Bod   2013

 

Honey is sweet - Sugar is sweet

Chocolate is sweet but itís bitter sometimes

Love can be kind - Love can be blind

Love can be sweet but itís bitter sometimes

 

                  Love is like chocolate

                  You know that I want it

                   Love is like chocolate

       I always want a little more

 

Candy is nice Ė Itís sugar and spice

But love is like chocolate Ė Itís my guilty vice

Your love is fine Ė Itís sweeter than wine

Your love is like chocolate Ė Your love is divine

 

                  Love is like chocolate

                  You know that I want it

                   Love is like chocolate

       I always want a little more

 

Love is like chocolate Ė Itís my obsession

I canít do without it Ė Thatís my confession

Iím hooked forever Ė Thatís my prediction

No type of rehab Ė can cure this addiction

 

Iíve nothing to hide Ė Iím hungry inside

If love is like chocolate, Iíll swallow my pride

I need your love Ė Feed me your love

Your love is like chocolate Ė I canít get enough

 

Love is like chocolate

                       You know I want it

                       Love is like chocolate

I always want a little more

 

Love is like chocolate

Love is like chocolate

Love is like chocolate

I always want a little more
