I thought my baby had a problem with me
I'm not the kind of man to be someone's fantasy
But I tell her she's the one I love

I never gave her a single rose
Or acknowledge her just painted toes
But I tell her she's the one I love

I been thinking I may lose my girl
If I don't change my ways
I heard a man on the radio say
I could be a Romeo in just five days
And then he said - stay tuned.

The book he was selling taught you way
To be a sexier man in every way
I'll do anything for the one I love
So I sent in my 19.95
The next day the wrapped package arrived
I;ll do anything for the one I love

It was a book and four CDs
I took in every single word
It was all so very new to me
I kept at it till my eyeballs blurred
Till I had it - stay tuned
Stay tuned

I searched for the perfect poetry
and memorized every line
I gotta fix what's wrong in me
I'll just put in the time

I even shaved my face till it was silky smooth
Practiced a few of the guaranteed moves
I'll do anything for the one I love.

I called my baby said are you alone
I showered and splashed on her favorite Cologne
I'll do anything for the one I loved

I danced my way up to her open door
Just like I was Fred Astair
I lowered my voice and handed her a rose
My cologne hanging in the air
I knelt down one knee upon the stair
Believing the Liz Browning that I read
Then I looked at her with half-closed eyes
And this is what she said.

*Baby what in the world is going on
Why are you are acting so strange
I love you for the man you are
You sure enough don't need to change
I may complain and make a little fuss
But you don't need a 'get better' class
You are everything I could ever want
And I know our love will last

*Then I heard the DJ on her radio
He said tonight is a very very special show
Just for lovers
She kissed me and whispered stay tuned
Stay tuned

Why is doing what you love the hardest thing to do? Is it because failing what you thought defined you would be too devastating a thing from which to recover? If so, we stay where mere accident has left us.
