The Lyrics

Note to admin: Please decline the other version of this song I submitted today.
When I doubt that I could tout a dating service rating
System I’d produce
Things common do not tell us dwelling with her you’ll
Find a jewel or abuse

And then the wrong chums marry
Now when there’s re-al choices made, and those first feelings fade
Just as if they’d never been
So maybe dating rating systems warn of mysteries so common
Let me fill you in.

Anyone can feel love at first sight
But can their new feeling survive their first fight

Confess to her she might concur but if perchance
Advance it now. The time is right
And don’t regret the tete-a-tete should something spoil. Turmoil
Is better than an endless fight.

But then the wrong chums marry
Their dating rating takes a hit because they fit; they looked close knit
So said the questionnaire
She said she liked the beach as to impeach that she’s a leech in search
Of any millionaire

Anyone can feel love at first sight
But can their new feeling survive their first fight

And when his character’s nine Richter, know he’s no
Longer a candidate for your soul mate
A Victorian accordionist
‘Ist true you might not find that kind of obscure trait

So when the wrong chums marry
Doesn't mean she wants to be victim to his sick psychotic schticks
That devastate her so
Oh let the dating rating system mate, calculate
And dictate character to find her a beau

Anyone can feel love at first sight
But can their new feeling survive their first fight

Nice job. Hardly anyone comments these days. I know you sometimes.

Thank you, PA. And thank you for ignoring the unwritten rule on this site that silence is the highest permissible compliment.

Kudos for going there; this is as tricky a rhyme scheme as there is. You could use a better comic concept, which I'll hand to you ... If The Association Had Performed Mary Had a Little Lamb .. After years of thought this is all Ive got ...... First Stanza: Kids are bored to death in class -- And then along comes Mary .. And does she have a little lamb who is source of child bedlam and breaks their span of scrutiny ..

Or maybe rather blather rules by old fools which are the abnegation of child reverie
