My Romance Is Not a Part Time Job


My romance is not hard or odd.
Since I've got it to give.
It's here for you...
And it lives.

My romance is not a part time job.
Full time!
You-are-on-my-mind.

You've got to know...
My romance is not hard or odd.
You've got to know...
My romance is not a part time job.
You've got to know...
I'll sweat.
Because I can't let you go!

My romance is not a part time job.
And I'll sweat.
Because I can't let you go!

My romance is not hard or odd.
My romance is not a part time job.
My romance is coming from my heart.
And I'll sweat!
Since I can't let you go!

My romance is not hard or odd.
My romance is not a part time job.
My romance is coming from my heart.
And I'll sweat!
Since I can't let you go!

And I'll sweat!
Since I can't let you go!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
