Each year in February,

 

After the Super Bowl.

 

All my thoughts turn to girls and such.

 

Itís way past my control.

 

 

How Ďbout  that babe in shipping?

 

With cool tats of angels wings.

 

Sheíll think I must be tripping

 

When I smile and singÖ

 

 

Yo, I want you

 

To be my valentine.

 

My love is true

 

So be my valentine.

 

Oh, please donít turn me down!

 

 

I know that workplace dating

 

Has pitfalls, I donít care.

 

Cause this job kinda sucks

 

And chicks like her are truly rare.

 

 

Why am I so enamored?

 

Cause sheís sweet, as red heads go.

 

When she says yes,

 

Iíll buy her Chocolates, and a Rose.

 

 

And some Chablis.

 

Just for my Valentine.

 

She must agree

 

To be my valentine.

 

What if she turns me down?!?

 

 

Approachable.

 

Thank God that sheís approachable.

 

If she wasnít Iíd stay home.

 

Gaming on my Xbox One.

 

They say,

 

Iím a little crazy.

 

But hey,

 

Her name is Daisy.

 

And she seems like so much fun!

 

 

Thatís why I asked

 

Sheíd be my valentine.

 

This might be fast

 

But be my valentine.

 

And she just shot me down!

 

 

**** The next section is taken from this incredible live version of the play ****

 

 

She wants nothing to do with me!

 

Whoís the one she wants!?!

 

Ali.?!?

 

From I. T.?!?

 

What's wrong with me?!?!?!?!?

 

 

*******  Now, back to the studio version  *******

 

 

Why am I such a pansy?

 

Blind by this love I feel?!?

 

Iím glad my friends canít hear me.

 

Get a grip!  This ainít a major

 

Deal!

 

No, she canít make me jealous.

 

Because Iím made of stone.

 

But not so much when

 

Iím in bed and all alone.

 

 

Thatís why I need

 

Her to be my valentine.

 

She must take heed

 

And be my valentine.

 

Thereís still a chance she might be mine.

 

 

A romantic, I might not be.

 

But no nerd working in I. T.

 

Can keep true love from me

 

And myÖ

 

Daisy.

 

Yeah!

 

The End

NOTE:  I do not own the lyrics or the music to the song Defying Gravity, but when I hear Stephanie J. Block singing in the role of the green goth goddess Elphaba, the younger Wicked Witch of the West of the Wizard of OZ fame, I surely wish I had written it.  When she belts out that 2nd "It's Me!", SJB starts taking the role of Elphaba to it's summit.

 

A Tarzan call came first.  When I first heard "Defying Gravity", I chuckled to myself thinking that the last note sounded somewhat like Tarzan's trademark yodel. But about a third of the way into that project, I shelved that line of thought in favor of something for February 14, 2015. The original project wasn't finished until 2018, some 3 years later.
