The h is silent; the music isn’t.

Loving 101

Track #2 of Come On, Kharlie M

Not a true story. I’ve been married to Wendi for nearly 36 years, and she has never been unfaithful to me. This song was written in 2011.

The mention of the Mmming Report in this song predates the newsletter by five years. I took the name of the newsletter from this song.


VERSE 1:
Every night you sit by the radio
Listening to the Mmming Report
to find out how King Kharlie spent the day
I know that don’t make sense
but neither does the place you went
with the dude I saw you with the other day

You must think that I’m chopped liver
For your heart is stone
and it has grown so cold it makes me shiver

CHORUS:
You need education in Loving 101
How to treat someone with due respect as a human
And I must remind you, you can’t undo all that you have done
without making some concessions about how life is run

VERSE 2:
Well, I hope you had a good time
with that tall, dark, handsome man
If you want to stay with him, that’s fine and dandy
But I hope that you’ll bear with me
as I try to understand
Why you’d leave your loving man for some eye candy

You must think that I’m naïve
Every time you say you love me
it gets harder to believe

CHORUS:
You need education in Loving 101
How to treat someone with due respect as a human
And I must remind you, you can’t undo all that you have done
without making some concessions about how life is run

BRIDGE:
Whoa whoa whoa, whoa whoa

You don’t even call or text me
If it’s love you want, don’t be so nonchalant
This really wrecks me

FINAL CHORUS:
Maybe someday you’ll advance to Loving 102
It’s a course where hugs and kisses are an option
But I seriously wonder how long I should wait for you
with my first advice still waiting for adoption

Whoa whoa whoa, whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa, whoa whoa whoa
