Default My greatest song ever. Please read!

I met a girl about a month ago
I asked her if we could take things slow
because I just got out of a relationship
and said that I was just looking for a quick fix
she looked me in the eye with intensity
straightened out her hand and rubbed it up my knee
I started to sweat as her hand progressed
and then I just let loose when she got to my chest
I leant in slightly expecting she would to
but she got up, walked out and left me to stew
I reached for my phone out of my pocket
but found that it was gone, along with my wallet

Chorus
Why do I attract such girls?
You'd think there'd be a guddun in this whole dam world

So about a week later I head off to a bar
sit down with a pint and a crumbling cigar
then I meet this girl with a head of flames
she puts her hand on my shoulder and she asks me my name
I reply with the answer and she brushes my hand
repeats and repeats that she needs a real man
I look around but she's talking to me
Shot glasses in our hands, one two then a three
so we clumsily exit and call for a cab
kiss all the way back to her scummy little flat
and when we get there I have to rub my eyes
the room is filled with hairy naked guys

Chorus
Why do I attract such girls?
You'd think there'd be a guddun in this whole dam world

So this is my story and I hope you can relate
to a guy who finds it hard to get past the first date
So I'll sit at home with a pot noodle and a can
watching dukes of hazzard tonight my date is my hand



This story isn't about me. Please don't think it's about me! I just had great fun writing this and I thought you lot would have great fun reading it.

EDIT: I've just realised how needy the title of this thread sounds.

Thankyou very much. I can't play any instruments, so that is a shame, but I might look around and find some people who can to write some music for it. This is possibly the only song that I have ever enjoyed writing. If people can give me more feedback please that would be great.

I like this one a lot too Hobo. Its great the way you've taken a general idea that people can relate to and then expanded on it with two slightly surprising stories. Ever critical, I've just got two lines to question.

Quote:
I order a tray of shots and knocks them down
The rest of the meter seems pretty strict, so this line seems out of place as it doesn't have a rhyming partner-line. I'm guessing 'knocks' is a typo and should be 'knock'?

You can't really fill a room with 'a pile' of anything. Unless its a very short, narrow, tall room. It might be better as 'piles' instead of 'a pile' or just 'the room is filled with naked guys' (which might be best as it gets rid of some excess syllables.

Other than that... awwwwwwesommmmmme.

You're ever critical DRMO, and as always I'm ever listening. Changed it around, have a look for yourself. I think this is going to be my style of writing from now on. I'm gonna cut out all the in depth crap and stick to what I do best-plain and simple.

Good thing too. Internet song-writing forums are clogged with artily-pretentious wannabe lyricists congratulating each other over intelligent metaphors, evocative atmospheres and other crap like that. Who needs it? Stories have been and always will be better than imagery!

Although some other people who posted here had complained about the lyrics posted on musicbanter, at least it doesn't suffer from the over-intellectualising, over-complicating and over-vagueifying bug that plagues most of the other lyric forum spaces.

So yeah, more stories! Less waffling!

When I read the song, I did so to the tune of Sublime's "Date Rape". Anyone else?

Never heard of that but I'm looking it up now. I have the tune for it planned out in my head. It sounds kinda country.
