Thread Name: So What's YOUR Entrance Music?
Subject: Lyr Add: COME FROM THE HEART (Susanna Clark)
Since I gotta play my own entrance music, I have two simple songs that I might play.

First is called "Come From the Heart" by Susanna Clark (Guy's wife) and some other male songwriter. Guy swears Susanna and this man went off to the parlor and wrote it in one-half an hour.

When I was a young man, my Daddy told me,
A lesson he learned, it was a long time ago.
If you want to have someone to hold onto,
You're gonna have to learn to let go.


You've got to sing, like you don't need the money,
Love like you'll never get hurt,
You've got to dance like nobody's watchin',
It's got to come from the heart if you want it to work.

Here is the one thing I keep forgettin',
When everything is just fallin' apart,
In life as in love, I need to remember,
There's such a thing as tryin' too hard. CHO:

If it isn't that one, it's a song by that old Folk Music songwriting team, Leiber and Stroller, "When She Wants Good Lovin'".

Well, she goes down to the baker when she wants some cake,
Goes to see the butcher when she wants some steak,
Goes to see the Doctor when she's got a cold,
Goes to see the gypsy when she wants her fortune told.

But when she wants good lovin', my baby comes to me.(2)

Well she goes down to Big Daddy when she wants some mink,
Calls up a plumber when she wants to fix up a sink.
Goes to her father when she wants new shoes,
Goes to see her mother when she's down and got the blues. CHO:

Well, she goes down to the river just to take a little dip,
Buys a Coca Cola when she wants to take a little sip.
Goes to the pawn shop when she wants some loot,
Goes to the beauty parlor when she wants to look real cute. CHO:

The first is a message to myself and the audience. The second is just pure, good-natured braggadocio. Since I'm a big guy, it encourages people to seem me as a sex object, sort of a different frame of reference. Keeps them off-guard and a little more open-minded.
