Subject: Lyr Req: Complicated/multiple relationship song
From: PHJim
Date: 07 Jul 21 - 02:20 PM

The song is about a love circle full of people who are all in love with someone else. I can't remember the exact lyrics but it went something like this:
"I'm in love with Vi, but she wanted Lee
Lee was waiting for Sarah, but Sarah was with Mike, you see"

Any help?

Subject: RE: Complex Relationship Songs: Crazy Daisy Chain
From: GUEST,Holly Tannen

Words: Holly Tannen
Tune: Lulu Had A Baby, from the singing of Carl Sandburg

Art’s in love with Linda, she’s in love with Ron,
He’s in love with Laura who he met at Al-Anon.
But Laura is a Buddhist, she always tells the truth,
So she told him about the scene she has with Stan and Ruth.

        He loves me, he loves me not, from one day to the next
        He’s up, he down, he’s freaking out, he’s totally perplexed.
        Here’s eighty dollars to my shrink to easy me of my pain,
        I’m just another daisy on the this crazy daisy chain.

Stan’s in love with Maggie, but he’s too shy to say,
’Cause she’s in love with Arnold, and we all know Arnold’s gay.
Arnold’s sweet on Matthew, but he can’t get a date,
’Cause Matthew, bless his cotton-picking little heart, is straight.

        He loves me, he loves me not, from one day to the next
        He’s up, he down, he’s freaking out, he’s totally perplexed.
        Here’s ninety dollars to my shrink to see if I’m still sane,
        I’m just another daisy on this crazy daisy chain.

Mathew’s courting Julie, but I hear they don’t have sex,
’Cause when he sees her all she does is talk about her ex.
Her ex is fond of Carol, but it can never be,
’Cause Carol is a Lesbian, and she’s in love with me.
        She is my best and oldest friend, I hate to break her heart.
        How am I going to tell her, I’ve got a crush on Art?

        He loves me, he loves me not, from one day to the next
        I’m up, I’m down, I’m freaking out, I’m totally perplexed.
        I’d ask my shrink a question if I only had the guts,
        Are we all codependent, or are we simply nuts?
        So here’s another hundred bucks to ease my fevered brain
        I’m just another daisy on this crazy daisy chain.

The local version is called Mendo Daisy Chain. It's probably the first song I ever made up. I'd just moved to Mendocino from Berkeley, and was trying to figure out who was doing what and with which and to whom.

Nice one Holly! Although I can' help but be reminded of Tom Lehrer's "I Got It From Agnes"...

Here's another:

(Michael Zwell)

I love Peggy & George & you, you love me & Bob & Sue
Peggy loves George & Sal & Ralph, Helen wants Bob all for herself
You know we got the multiple relationship blues
Multiple (16x) / Multiple relationships!

I was pacing up the floor (much uptight)
Deciding who to be with (to spend the night)
It’s so hard to have to choose between the four of you
(Who will it be, maybe him or her or me)

(bridge) We love each other, it’s plain to see
(Why did she choose him instead of me?)
I love you all, about the same
(I wish you’d stop calling me by his name)

I met someone new to love (o hurray!)
I know you will like him so (go away!)
Let’s spend some time together soon perhaps in early June
(He & I we’re very happy together)

— new words by Michael Zwell — m: “Silhouettes”
