Thought I would try writing a song for a change. I have a red dress and a red hat and I love them both. I haven't worn them together yet as I fear my countenance would do nothing for the lovely red hat. I tend to write the words and hum the tune at the same time but I'm usually unable to put a tune onto paper. I trust my memory will be effective should the tune be required.
Red, Red Dress
I’m wearing my red….red dress
And my….red, red hat
It makes my world seem upright
Since you left me feeling flat.
I read your spiteful message
That you sent me just for kicks
Then I took that rancid letter
And I gave it the deep six
Then I put on my red, red dress
And my red, red, hat.
And I threw away my worries
Like I'd never heard of that.
In your selfish little world
You said that one plus one is one
You thought that I would count on you
But my number work is done.
So if you think that I… feel… sad
That there’s no one else… but… you
Just take a look and see
That I don’t wear red with blue.
Cos I’ve put on my red, red dress
And my red, red hat
And I’ve thrown away old memories
I’m so done with all of that.
And I’m wearing my……..red, red dress
And my………red, red hat……
Wearing my red, red dress…..
Wearing my red, red hat……
