lyrics

you have a look that makes me want to
yes when I see you there all I want to do
is find a way to coax that subtle smile to stick around
and maybe lift your body
just a bit right off the ground
'cuz I see that there's a sadness in your eyes
though I know that I can hardly sympathize
and I can't pull the sun through a cloudy sky
but too bad 'cuz I'm gonna have to try

there was a night we were IMing
so many times I couldn't keep from LOLTMing
I knew that I was hooked when you said
"good lord, Vincent Price!"
and I tried to fire back with EMS tent flap advice
it's cool you're so much better at this game
and your wit puts all my feeble lines to shame
and to think I can hang I must be high
but too bad 'cuz I'm gonna have to try

'cuz you're the chatty bandit
and I am so glad you've landed
here on my shore when I was blue
I know I might sound sappy
but I wanna make you happy
and so I wrote this song for you

then at my show you had been drinkin'
I sat beside you to see what you were thinkin'
you said you liked my jacket
and my brand new pair of pants
and I went out on a limb to say
you're sexy when you dance
'cuz I know how you've been made to feel before
but to me you seem so easy to adore
and I know these lines can't replace a guy
but too bad 'cuz I'm gonna have to try

'cuz you're the chatty bandit
and I am so glad you've landed
here on my shore when I was blue
I know I might sound sappy
but I wanna make you happy
and so I wrote this song for you

some people might think that it's strange
all the games that we arrange
to keep us entertained
but I really couldn't care
yeah they can go ahead and stare
when we're dancing in our cubes

'cuz you're the chatty bandit
and I am so glad you've landed
here on my shore when I was blue
I know I might sound sappy
but I wanna make you happy
and so I wrote this song for you

'cuz you're the chatty bandit
and I am so glad you've landed
here on my shore when I was blue
I know this might sound sappy
but when you're near I'm happy
and so I wrote this song for you
