Spinster's Love Song to the Emu

Tune: Looking For Love in All the Wrong Places


I've spent a lifetime looking for you
Loved lots of feather-brains, never true
Playing a fools' game, hoping to win
Telling those sweet lies and losing again.

I was looking for love in all the wrong places
Looking for love in the wrong kinda faces
Searching your eyes, looking for traces
Of what.. I'm dreaming of...
Hopin' to find an ostrich-like lover
God bless the day I discovered
You in the night,, lookin' for love

When I was alone,late in the night
Left up the window shade, hoping for someone right…
Don't know where it started or where it might end
Attracting any species at all, lookin' for a friend

I was looking for love in all the wrong places
Looking for love in the wrong kinda faces
Searching your eyes, looking for traces
Of what.. I'm dreaming of...
Hopin' to find an ostrich-like lover
God bless the day I discovered
You in the night,, lookin' for love

You came a'knocking at my heart's door..
You're everything I've been looking for..
Finally a birdbrain who'll at least be true
I've found my love in my own Emu!

No more looking for love among the wrong races,
Found love in that googly-eye face, oh
Dinner-plate eyes, legs like a race horse
That's what I'm dreaming of...
Now that I found an ostrichoid lover
I bless the day I discovered
My Emu, lookin' for love

…In humanoid races
Looking for love in too many faces
Googly eyes, how my heart races
No-one is gonna believe it's true!...
Now that I found a feather-brained lover
Knowin' for sure he won't blow my cover
That big Emu, he was lookin' for love!
