VERSE 1

 

Most girls kind of get freaky,

 

On the occasion,

 

Of their loved one's birthday.

 

 

Some want to go there weekly,

 

(Why wait for celebration,)

 

Through what they call Suitcase Play.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Suitcase Play.

 

Said your love is true, or not.

 

Suitcase Play.

 

Then let me tell you what.

 

If your fidelity's lacking,

 

You're the fellow that she's packing,

 

For a trip that's probably one way.

 

I'm talkin' 'bout Suitcase Play.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

When pioneers do new things,

 

It is expected,

 

There might be dues to pay.

 

 

Have lots of holes for breathing.

 

Lest some one be suspected,

 

Of torturous Suitcase Play.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Suitcase Play.

 

Said your love is true, or not.

 

Suitcase Play.

 

Then let me tell you what.

 

If your fidelity's lacking,

 

You're the fellow that she's packing,

 

For a trip that's probably one way.

 

I'm talkin' 'bout Suitcase Play.

 

 

BRIDGE - spoken verse, most likely.

 

Now, if your baby buys a luggage set,

 

Getting left out can make a fellow blue.

 

But you're gonna feel like the luckiest guy yet,

 

Learning that the large one is meant for you.

 

 

And friend, it might seem like just a gag,

 

But you could spend the rest for the night.

 

In a steamer trunk, or a duffle bag,

 

Or even in the best of Samsonite.

 

 

So take care that your lover,

 

Hasn't heard about the affair.

 

Or else you might just discover,

 

That darkness heightens despair.

 

 

Once you bragged about being double jointed.

 

Like a performer in Cirque Du Soleil.

 

If you feel your baby's disappointed,

 

My advice is to avoid Suitcase Play.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Suitcase Play.

 

Said your love is true, or not.

 

Suitcase Play.

 

Then let me tell you what.

 

If your fidelity's lacking,

 

You're the fellow that she's packing,

 

For a trip that's probably one way.

 

I'm talkin' 'bout Suitcase Play.

 

 

The End
