"Black Dress, Baby"...New Lyrics...MP3 Available...Question Also...

Okay...you can get the MP3 for this song by right clickin' on this link to save it:

http://www.delta.edu/kdnelson/BlackDressBaby.mp3

***UPDATE***: Slower version: http://www.delta.edu/kdnelson/BlackDressBaby2.mp3

Also...a question...I used a trial version of a program to convert my wav files to MP3's, but I cannot use it anymore because I can't afford to buy it (I'm a poor college student, what do you people want from me? ). Anybody know of a free program out there I could use?

Anyway, here are the lyrics for "Black Dress, Baby"...

You say I cannot let them see
All of my pretty scars,
Gotta dress Ďem up and make Ďem cute
Make Ďem sparkle like the stars
Now I donít wanna put up a front
Donít wanna perform a show,
But if I donít, youíre telliní me
That itíll be a no go
So Iím gonna do this for you right now
Iím not doiní it for me,
Iím gonna cover up the imperfections
And wear the black dress, baby

Black dress, baby
You know I donít believe in it
Black dress, baby
You know I canít be seen in it
Black dress, baby
Iíll try for ya, baby

Weíre goiní out, gonna hit the town
Itís better than hittiní the floor,
But even when it comes to that
You know Iím gonna ask for more
Carry me around on your strong hip
Iíll be so quiet and sweet,
Youíll barely even know Iím there
Except for when I greet
All those boys that get so jealous
Cuz theyíre not here with me,
If only they could see the truth
Under my black dress, baby

Black dress, baby
You know I donít believe in it
Black dress, baby
You know I canít be seen in it
Black dress, baby
Iíll lie for ya, baby

Donít worry, I will never leave
As long as youíll let me stay,
I could probably be just fine on my own
But I doubt Iíll live to see the day
I was always told that true love hurts
So I guess we have something good,
Iíve never had anything before
And I never thought that I would
I love that sparkle in your eye
When you look at me,
But you only get that tender look
When I wear the black dress, baby

Black dress, baby
You know I donít believe in it
Black dress, baby
You know I canít be seen in it
Black dress, baby
Iíll die for ya, baby
Just love me, babyÖ

that's absolutely fabulous Bonochick!!

you really wrote an epic there, I'm not sure I would sing it (not that I can sing) in that fast a pace (it's a bit dizzying and I think negates some of the sensuality and intimacy of it, then again, what do I know???), but either way you have a wonderful voice and I can't say enough about the lyrics you've written... you absolutely MUST put this to music somehow!!

p.s. you can convert wav files to mp3 by using the free program at http://www.cdex.n3.net

such an honest and freshness to these lyrics, very impressive

Thanks, Wanderer...I was hoping somebody would comment on the pace, as I was unsure if I preferred it faster or slower...I will have to tinker with it more. It was a song that kinda popped into my head while I was driving home before...that was how it entered my head, so I went with it. I'd like to experiment with it more though.

Wow, that took guts! I liked it! It's good and you have a really good voice Bonochick. I prefer the slow version. It just needs a rockin' beat with an instrumental moment to break up the verses a bit.

Good job!

Thanks, Angel!

I prefer the slow version too, but I figured I would just leave both up anyway.

I am working on MP3's of my other lyrics too...and I'm workin' on more lyrics, so hopefully I'll have time to create new work over my Christmas break.
