Just Three Minutes

This song is sort of a departure from the genre and feel I’ve been going for, but it’s fun enough that I’m not worrying about being 100% period accurate.  It’s the story of a musician who, upon looking out in the crowd, sees a girl that catches his eye.  He ends up playing his heart out just so that the girl will notice him, but in the end… well… you’ll just have to listen to find out what happens.

This is song number three for February Album Writing Month (FAWM).

Just Three Minutes

Just Three Minutes

So you slipped into the front rowAnd the stage lit up your smile
And the way you caught my eye, baby
Made me think you’re worth the while

And you think you’re something special
Ya you think you’ve got the goods
And girl, I’m more than happy
To treat you like I should

Just three minutes, ooh, ooh (4x)

I’ve got three minutes to tell you
Yes, I’ve got three minutes to say
Oh, I’ve got three minutes left now
So I better start right away

Just three minutes before I’m done
Just three minutes to sing
Just three minutes to tell you baby
That to me you’re everything

Well the song is halfway done now
And I got my eye on you
But I got the feeling, baby
That you’ve got some things to do

Like maybe call you mother
Or you need to wash your hair
But you look like when I’m done up here
You’re gonna head right up the stairs

Just two minutes before I’m through
Just two minutes to say
Just two minutes to let you know
That I need you right away

Just two minutes before I’m done
Just two minutes to sing
Just two minutes to tell you baby
That to me you’re everything

Instrumental Interlude

Well I sang another chorus, baby
And I sang another verse
How I wish this song was longer
But the band just won’t rehearse

And I think my time is up, girl
Ya, the big ending’s done and gone
I wish I knew just what I did
That made it all go wrong

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1… tick tock, tick tock…

Well the crowd is going crazy
But you’re headed out the door
Maybe there’s one thing to do
To keep you wanting more

The band is at the ready
And the beat just hit the floor
So I think it’s time to bring it back
Girl, it’s time for the big encore, and I’ve got…

Just three minutes before I’m through
Just three minutes to say
Just three minutes to beg you girl
Oh please don’t go away

Just three minutes before I’m done
Just three minutes to sing
Just three minutes to tell you baby
That to me you’re everything
