Regretting What I Said | Christine Lavin
Check out this blog!
This song is called "Regretting what I said to you when you called me at 11:00
on Friday morning to tell me that 1:00 Friday afternoon you were gonna leave
your office, go downstairs, __________ a cab, to go out to the airport, to catch a
plane, to go __________ in the Alps for two weeks. Not that I wanted to go with you;
I wasn't able to leave town, I'm not a very good __________, I couldn't expect you to
pay my way, but after going out with you for __________ years, I don't like surprises.
(And it's subtitled "A Musical Apology". In this song, I __________ to take back
everything I said while standing in a phone __________ at the corner of 49th and 3rd)
I didn't mean it when I said I hope the cable in the __________ snaps when you step on
And I was joking when I said I hope you __________ your head
And get __________ by the downstairs __________ doors.
And I was kidding when I said I hope the Number __________ bus
Hits and makes a __________ out of you.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Isn't it amazing what a woman in love will do?
And I really don't want to see your taxi on the 59th __________ Bridge
__________ and crash through the rail.
And I'd feel bad if at the airport you were mistaken for a local sex __________,
Arrested, beaten up, and __________ in jail.
And I really don't want to see you getting
Radiation __________ from the metal __________ that all passengers
On __________ and domestic flights must walk __________.
I'm sorry, forgive me for all the __________ things I said to you.
You thought I didn't have a __________.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, surprise!
But I really don't want to see you dismembered
By the __________ sniffing dogs,
When a simple little __________ would suffice, would suffice.
And I'm sorry that I said I hope the plane explodes in midair as it carries you away from me
And I'm sorry that I said I hope you break both legs on the mountain while you ski.
And I'm sorry for all the __________ things I said about your mother even though we both
know they're true.
I'm sorry, forgive me,
I'm __________ my pride, I'd feel so __________ if you died,
Oh, I'm sorry, but I'm still mad at you.
