cptsnapper Lyr Req: Love Love Love (from Cosmotheka) (23) Lyr Add: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE (Ernie Mayne/Cosmotheka) 20 Apr 09

As requested, the verses taken from Cosmotheka's "A Good Turn Out":

Ernie Mayne

1. I am a man who is deeply in love,
Deeply in love, there's no doubt of it.
Right up the loop and I'm fair in the soup,
And I haven't the strength to get out of it.
Once on a time I could eat a big steak,
Not half a steak and I make no mistake.
'Til I met Miss Blake, now my appetite's spent
For she lives in my heart but she pays me no rent.

CHORUS: Love, love, love, look what it's done for me:
I eat no breakfast, I eat no dinner,
And every day I get thinner and thinner.
Waste not, want not and I'm wasting every day:
Wasting my money and I'm wasting my time
'Til I'm wasting myself away.

2. Now, once for my breakfast I could eat fifty eggs,
Now I can't go forty nine of them.
I'd muscles hard, like bladders of lard
But alas now I can't see a sign of 'em.
I got so thin that the suits that I wear
Fit me nowhere and I don't think it's fair.
She don't seem to care if to nothing I shrink
I'm afraid to wash now lest I slip down the sink. CHORUS

Speaking of Cosmotheka did anyone see them at the Cardiff folk festival years ago? They did a workshop about music hall & they saw me as I was just passing the room where it was being held & Al rushed out & asked me to sing a song. I pointed out that I didn't know any music hall songs but he said that it didn't matter. When I'd finished they got up and said that whilst it was obvious that I didn't sing music hall songs I was the sort of person who would have if I'd been alive at the relevant time!!
