*Posting By Delgado/Song Lyrics

Well I've asked E if I can drop in again, every now and then and he said yes. I think he felt bad for me because I emailed him, manic with coffee.

The below is a song sung by Frank Sin-Atra. I recently learned about it via Devotchka. The sick thing is that while googling the correct lyrics, it seems that Robbie Williams (WTF?) and Nicole Kidman (Double WTF?) have done a duo of this song. Go figure, then puke. Kidding. I know ThisRobbieGuy is some sort of Phenom-enana in the UK...

Something Stupid

I know I stand in line, until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance, I know that theres a chance
You wont be leaving with me

And afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all, by saying something stupid
Like: I love you

I can see it in your eyes, that you despise the same old lies
You heard the night before
And though its just a line to you, for me its true
It never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find some clever lines to say
To make the meaning come through
But then I think Ill wait until the evening gets late
And Im alone with you

The time is right your perfume fills my head, the stars get red
And oh the nights so blue
And then I go and spoil it all, by saying something stupid
Like: I love you
(I love you, I love you,...)

Raul Malo did it too. On a Mavericks album. I don't remember who with, though.
