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

board.

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.
