Loving Kindness

The gift that keeps on giving
The one that delights me so
The one that fills me up inside
I have it in me wherever I go

Even when we’re far apart
You might laugh but it’s true
The gift that keeps on giving
Is loving kindness from you

The gift that keeps on giving
Is loving kindness from you
It’s in the heart that gives it away
Its important to honestly do

So when you wonder what to give
Someone who has everything
Well, the gift they’ll treasure most
Isn’t that Pearl Necklace,
Sterling Silver, or Tiffany ring
Once they’re no longer new
The gift that keeps on giving
Is loving kindness from you

What this world needs so much
Is loving kindness from you

It’s loving kindness from you
It’s loving kindness from you
It’s loving kindness from you

Your Guess Is As Good As Mine

You ask me why I love you
 Why I’m always thinking of you
 Why your kisses are better than wine
 I couldn’t even tell you
 Why I love to smell you
 Your guess is as good as mine

 It could be your bright eyes
 Or that attractive hip size
 Or your smile, how it shines
 Maybe my heart is saying
 I should be often praying
 And forget all my ex-Valentines

 Maybe it’s not as important
 The answer to your question, "Why?"
 Maybe if you believe me
 And you don’t hurt or deceive me
 The truth will never be a lie

 I could say it’s your laughter
 Is the reason why I’m after
 Your lips so soft and divine
 I’d explain it if I could
 If you said that it would
 prove this ain't a corny line
 But baby, your guess is as good as mine

 Baby, your guess is as good as mine

Very Much

I’m very much into your eyes
How they sparkle in the moonlight
I’m very much into your hair
It’s glowing and flowing tonight
I’m very much into your smile
and your teeth so pearly white
and I’m very much into your style
You could end up being my Miss Right

I’m very much into your hands
The touch of them soothes my soul
I’m very much into the way
you can keep it all under control
I’m very much into your laughter
as we take an afternoon stroll
I wonder if we’ll spend ever after
loving each other and feeling whole

But enough of what I feel
I want to know your inner you
Are you ready to take a chance?
Do you feel the same way I do?
Is this in vain, or is this fate?
Is it the start of a dream come true?
In our case, was love not too late?
Could you see what we could be, too?

I’m very much into this courtship
and seeing where this thing goes
I’m very much into your spirit
Your scent is the essence of a rose
I’m very much into all you are
and everything you’ll ever be
but if, and only if, my dear,
You’re very much into me

Yes, if, and only if, my dear,
You’re very much into me

When It Comes To Shaving

I’m happy with wearing plain clothes
I don’t need logos on them to feel great
I’m fine with simple decor in our home
I don’t mind eating off a paper plate

But there’s one thing
I won’t ever negotiate

When it comes to shaving
I’ll always need to use a brush and soap
I won’t use that cream in a can anymore
But I’m good with an Artisan made croap
I love pairing the matching aftershave
It starts me off with a menthol sting
Honey baby, when it comes to shaving
I won’t use just anything

The badger brush is a bit too much
I like swirling with a synthetic knot
Darlin’, don’t get me that foaming gel
I’ll stick with all the goodies I bought
From online independent vendors
Who buy from the best of the trade
Sometimes the scents are similar
But they perform great and well-made

Takes long, I know dear
but it’s worth the wait

When it comes to shaving
I’ll always need to use a brush and soap
I won’t use that cream in a can anymore
But I’m good with an Artisan croap
I love pairing the matching aftershave
It starts me off with a menthol sting
Honey baby, when it comes to shaving
I won’t use just anything

Honey baby,
When it comes to shaving
I won’t use just anything!

Lyric Notes: I think this would be awesome as a Barbershop 4 part harmony song or I thought of Keb Mo with his smooth acoustic blues guitar style in the background!
