about

Challenge for Spintunes 9, round 2: "Write a song about unconditionally loving someone who plainly isn't worth it." While working on another song I considered the line, "She has nothing but love for me." It didn't work there, but I started wondering what if that were literally true?

lyrics

NOTHING BUT LOVE

She won’t answer the door, she won’t cook or clean
She won’t chip a nail on the washing machine
She won’t change the channel on her own TV
She’s Got Nothing But Love For Me.

She won’t touch a duster, won’t pick up the phone
She won’t fry up the bacon that I bring home
If I press her to do it I’m afraid she'll flee
She’s Got Nothing But Love For Me.

But ooooooooo-weee!
I’m in LOVE, helplessly!
And my baby, can’t you see,
Has got nothing but love for me!
(NOTHING!)

She can’t find the kitchen, she won’t scrub a pan
She’s afraid of the sink and those dishpan hands
She once used a broom -- on Playboy TV
She’s Got Nothing But Love For Me.

She’s not a big fan of societal norms
She’s been to college - but only the dorms
She’s an honorary member of the fraternity
She’s Got Nothing But Love For Me.

[whistling solo]

But ooooooooo-weee!
I’m in LOVE, helplessly!
And my baby, can’t you see,
Has got nothing but love for me!
(ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!)

At night when I’m tired and ready for slumber
She’ll meet me in bed, if I’ll just take a number
I’ll even get lucky, if I’ve got the fee,
She’s Got Nothing But Love For Me.
She’s Got Nothing But Love For Me
My baby's got nothing...
...but love....
...for me!

Many thanks to Ray Stevens for inspiration over the years and for not suing me over this pastiche, mainly due to ignorance of its existence.
