come hither

One of my favorite moments at the Over the Rhine show was when Karin said, "I love a five o'clock shadow on a man. I wrote this song about it." We bonded in that moment - even if she didn't know. Five o'clock shadow = sex on legs.

Trouble
If you came to make some trouble
Better make it good
Your sexy cocktail hour stubble
Is doing what it should
Looks may be sweet and subtle
I think it’s trouble honey
I think it’s good
If you came to make trouble
Make me a double honey
I think it’s good

Novices have expectations
‘Cause they think they should
Experts have their revelations
Like they knew they would
What may seem complicated
Is overstated downright misunderstood
Love will not be outdated
Maybe placated but it’s got to be good

We’re so precarious with semantics
I think this could be trouble
I think it’s trouble honey
I think it’s good
If you came to make trouble
Make me a double honey
I think it’s good

What may seem complicated
Is overstated downright misunderstood
Love will not be outdated
Maybe placated but it’s got to be good
We’re far too serious
I think we could be
Such nefarious pyromantics



In other words, GET YOUR SCRUFFY SELF OVER HERE.

Ooh! Remember when I was trying to tunelessly sing you a song the other night? I finally figure out the singer's name: Gillian Welch. Name of song: Sing that Rock and Roll.
