Treasure Island

Be Mine


Baby you and I are more than friends,
I won't listen to no more of your 'depends',
There's some things you have to hear,
Quit whatever you're doing and listen dear.

Darling, honey, shine be mine,
I'd treat you right, 'cause you're divine.

I can smell that cologne of his on you,
It's not good, I know that, and you know that I know too,
I don't overblow myself with scents,
Stop hurting yourself with bruises and bents.

Darling, honey, shine be mine,
I'd treat you right, 'cause you're divine.

You know his touch is nothing like mine,
Have him bow, have him fall, have him resign,
I'd treat you right, and I'd be gentle,
He's dragging you down, keeping you in dust, so mental.

Darling, honey, shine be mine,
I'd treat you right, 'cause you're divine.

He ain't worthy of you, and nor are they,
They're just trying to have their way,
But baby I know your way, I know what's best,
Compare me to the rest, I'm not a hurtful detest.

Darling, honey, shine be mine,
I'd treat you right, 'cause you're divine.

Now look at you in the mirror, breathe in deeply,
Tug in that shirt, you're sellin' yourself cheaply,
You're worth a lot more, more than they,
So I suggest you stop showin' and giving it all away.

Darling, honey, shine be mine,
I'd treat you right, 'cause you're divine.

Now I'll say this one more time, and baby hear me straight,
I'm here to donate, not make you wait, pick you up by the gate,
I'll take you to the fairytale you've always seen in your dreams,
To where Unicorns breathe, with the hot ocean and the mouthful steams.

Darling, honey, shine be mine,
I'd treat you right, 'cause you're divine.

I can see you in, and I can see you out,
As you may know, I've been on a scout,
No perfect choice for me, except for you,
Take my hand, and start over, all new.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
