Compilation Tapes

A song about the lost art of the mix-tape and knowing that someone is trouble but doing it anyway…

Compilation Tapes:

Did I mention that I think that you’re a real fine dancer and I like the way you dress?
I’ve known a number of girls like you and they all leave quite a mess.
But now I got me a secret decoder ring for every scrambled message that you send
and I’ll apologize before we get started for how we both know this will end.
Because we both know this will end…

Do you want to make a big mistake
and maybe trade some compilation tapes?
Introduce me to my favorite song before this all goes wrong
and we stop trading compilation tapes.

Well maybe you will notice I’m a real fine dancer and you’ll say you like my shoes
and I’ll say “babe, you ain’t seen nothing yet until you heard me sing the blues”
and then you’ll play me some bittersweet old soul music on some third-hand radio
and I’ll say I could never fall in love with you, honey, ‘cause I still love rock and roll.
I still love rock and roll…

Do you want to make a big mistake
and maybe trade some compilation tapes?
Introduce me to my favorite song before this all goes wrong
and we stop trading compilation tapes.

Did I mention that I think that you’re a real fine dancer and I like the way you dress?…
