The Lyrics

The love-struck turtle finally confesses his innermost thoughts and dreams to his beloved, in that eloquent verse of which only he is capable. (rest of world heaves sigh of relief). For the probable reply, see the other post today.

There were thoughts
In my head
But they always were so fleeting
Not a single word, I'd recall
Till there was you

There were sheep
On home-stead
And I always heard them bleating
I had long preferred them, to ball
Till there was you

Then there were ewes, thick
And there was blowing of noses
You sell me
Complete plagiarettos, aooow, gawn! Adieu!

Left your glove
On the ground
But I never saw it flinging
Thought it so absurd, was it all
Till there was you!

Do I make you sick?
As Mr. Wonderful poses
In Speedo™
In street-flagrant ghettos: Our lawn; house, new

From above
Going down
Now, my clever bird is swinging
No one ever spurred her to sprawl
Till AIR was you!

Who knew TT had a romantic side? (actually, he does; see tomorrow)

Yes, it's udder nonsense. Needed a break from the FG-TT Big Project debuting next Wednesday, one week from today.

A lovely little song and worthy of 5's. A turtle in a speedo? That you don't see every day.

Awww ... such sweet reptilian rapture! 555 for "street-flagrant ghettos" alone. :-D

Quite a romantic ditty! I'm quite the romantic myself. Hot guys are my biggest weakness! Most of the time I would ask myself what makes me drool a lot more, a delicious meal or some guy's bluest eyes and great bod! I know this sounds retarded, but I always compare handsome guys to delicious meals because they are both tempting. Take some romantic 5's, you lovesick Turtle!

Sticking to the sheep would be cheaper (but a bit messy). You don't have to take your date out for the dinner - once you're done your date can be the dinner.

TT patented double-trouble entendres 'abound' (but mainly just 'bound') in this delicious ditty! Love the vocab... 'aooow gawn' an MFL allusion? And 'plagariettos' a cool neolojism here! I must admit I'm hoping your 'clever' bird doesn't urban 'sprawl' too close my way!

Timmy1000: Good point! .... they're hard to fit over these shells. Thanks for v/c.

metaphorsbwithu : Thanks for picking the author's fave line, too!

Christie Marie M: You got something against green? (j/k!) Yeah, I've eaten my fair share of the opposite gender, too heh heh. :) Thanks, CMM!

Andy Primus: Hmm, never thought of it that way ... but see above reply to CMM... have "dined" on a few lambs :) Thanks for v/c.

TJC: Sharp! ..... No problem if she does, "sprawl in the family", right? :D

My, the AIR is certainly thick tonight! LOL @ "street-flagrant ghettos"... That's why you're the only turtle with whom I'll write. :)

Fiddlegirl: You're sure it's not just because I'm the only turtle here? Or the only turtle on the planet who can write, for that matter? (EVERYONE: Notice how she carefully leaves herself an out, to write with human males.)

Gee, you came sooo close to making up for your "comment" at the other song... Just you wait! ... until tomorrow (Thursday), in fact... Turtle's gonna getcha, FG! xoxoxo :D

In flagrante delectable...

Braced for the "shellacking"... (although *your* shell is most certainly not lacking-- in anything!) :D
