OLD LOVE (c 1992) lyrics: Neal Hagberg & Leandra Peak music: Neal Hagburg

We've got an old love
One we never will get tired of
One that fits us like an old glove
One to warm the winter days
We don't have to say "I love you"
Quite as often as we used to
Old love just goes without saying
But we still say it anyway.

I met you beneath the willow
We were young, a little shy
But we would sit and talk for hours
Watch the river flowing by

You would laugh at all my stories
Then at dusk I'd walk you home
Who'd have guessed we'd walk a lifetime
Growing up and growing old.

Repeat 1

We may not leave this town we live in
And life's not as easy as we planned
I always meant to give you diamonds
But you still wear a plain gold band

That old river keeps on rollin'
And we don't know just what's in store
But in spite of all of this
I don't love you like I did
Oh, I love you so much more.

Repeat 1

recorded by Neal & Leandra on "Old Love" cassette 1992 Uncle Gus Music. reissued as CD by Redhouse Records.

I happende to run into Neal last week and they have a new CD coming out this fall.

Old Love

by Neal Hagberg and Leandra Peak

CHO: We've got an old love,
One we never will get tired of,
One that fits us like an old glove,
One to warm the winter's day.
We don't have to say, "I love you",
Quite as often as we used to.
Old love just goes without sayin',
But we still say it anyway.

I met you beneath the willow,
You were young and kinda shy.
But we would sit and talk for hours,
Watch the river flowin' by.
You would laugh at all my stories,
Then at dusk I'd walk you home,
Who'd have guessed we'd walk a lifetime,
Growin' up and growin' old.

CHO:

We may not leave this town we live in,
And life's not as easy as we planned.
I always meant to give you diamonds,
But you still wear a plain, gold band.
That old river keeps on rollin',
And we don't know just what's in store.
But in spite of all of this,
I don't love you like I did,
Oh, I love you so much more.

CHO:

Enjoy the song, it is one of my favorites!

Roger,

You must have been having a real gabfest. I had to go upstairs to find the cassete, which proved to be down here in another room, Then I had to find my glasses and turn on lots of lights so I could read the tiny print on the cassette insert and finally slowly type it in. Just so's you don't get to feelin' too down, I'll hunt for the parody version of Old Love.

Subject: Lyr Add: HARD SHOVE (parody of OLD LOVE)
From: rich r
Date: 20 Sep 98 - 01:40 PM

"Hard Love" parody. It is football season and several years ago Dale Connelly host of the Morning Program on Minnesota Public Radio decided that there was a need for a kinder and gentler football fight song , so he wrote these words. Neall & Leandra sang them live on the show.

HARD SHOVE

Give them a hard shove,
Show those sissies what we're made of,
Push them down the field with tough love,
That's the way we're gonna play.
It doesn't matter if we're good sports
Pulverize them and their cohorts
Make them eat their jerseys and shorts
They don't like us anyway.

You can't say we're happy campers,
You can't say we don't play fair
If you're crying, here's you pampers
We're not sad, 'cause we don't care
We put toads in your team's water
We over pressurized the ball
You'd best get ready for a slaughter
You bet, we've got a lot of gall

Give them a hard shove,
Show those sissies what we're made of,
Push them down the field with tough love,
That's the way we're gonna play.
It doesn't matter if we're good sports
Pulverize them and their cohorts
Make them eat their jerseys and shorts
They don't like us anyway.

Subject: Lyr Add: MOLD LOVE (parody from Neal & Leandra)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 04 Nov 07 - 05:17 PM

Neal and Leandra also sang this self-parody on Minnesota Public Radio's morning show. The web site doesn't say who wrote the parody; maybe it was Neal & Leandra themselves, or maybe it was the Morning Show's hosts, Dale Connelly and Jim Ed Poole (pseudonym of Tom Keith).

The song was first sung as part of a comedy sketch wherein Poole/Keith plays psychologist B. Marty Berry (apparently a parody of T. Barry Brazelton with elements of Stuart Smalley) and urges Neal & Leandra to be more truthful.

To hear the complete sketch, go to this page and then click "Listen."

MOLD LOVE

We're singing OLD LOVE.
Can you tell it's getting old, Love?
Something we have heard enough of
Gets requested ev'ry day.
We still sing it 'cause we have to.
You can't hate it more than we do.
Like a jukebox that's left playing,
We still sing it anyway.

[NEAL:] Here I let my mind go wand'ring.
I'm so bored and uninvolved.
The creative juice I'm squand'ring.
Even chimpanzees evolved.
I can feel my brain dissolving.
Hard to think this once was new.
It only seems to take a lifetime.
I need a nap. How 'bout you?

[BOTH:] We've got an old love,
The longest story ever told, Love,
A silver hair among the gold, Love,
So we put it on display.
People think we must be happy,
'Cause we sing a song this sappy,
But we're just grateful to be paying
All the bills that OLD LOVE pays.

[NEAL:] I'm getting lumpy as a pillow.
I'm feeling crusty as a pie.
The first ten thousand times I sang it,
I was still a youthful guy.
Now I'm turning gray and frazzled.
And my chin sags like a tarp;
But in spite of losing hair,
I'm so glad that we're a pair,
Both old enough for AARP [pronounced "arp"].

[BOTH:] We're looking old, Love,
Less a pixie, more a troll, Love.
Lost my navel in a fold, Love.
Didn't need it anyway.
And when I hear you say, "I love you,"
Feel more grateful than I used to.
Like mold, love grows as we're decaying.
It just gets bigger every day.

Like mold, love grows as we're decaying.
It just gets bigger every day.
