That Cesspool We Call Love
(a song in progress)
by L. Stewart Marsden

I think you all know just what I mean, yeah, yeah
That love is never ever so clean, yeah, yeah
And that it’s got to be seen, yeah, yeah, yeah
for what it really is.

Uh well it always starts out so nice, yeah, yeah
And comes at a really cheap price, yeah, yeah
But you’ll end up paying up twice, yeah, yeah,
for what it really is

Chorus:
You go around once
and you go around twice
like a merry-go-round and round and round
and you grab for the ring
and the pleasures it brings
until that merry-go-round slows down and down
and you end up singing the blues, yeah, yeah
you end up singing the blues

because you ain’t as sly as a fox, oh yeah
but you’re as dumb as a bird-brained dove, oh yeah
and what you think you have got
is nowhere nearly as hot
as it slides down that slot
to that cesspool we call love, yeah, yeah
that cesspool we call love

      So, have one of your friends who writes music provide the music to Cesspool. I had in mind more of a 50s rock and roll feel. A la Bill Haley. An international blog collaboration. Who knows where it could lead?

      You have my permission to set it to music.
