Best Things in Life are Free

A couple of evenings ago, I made up this little song on my ‘targ’ (as my littlest flatmate Yumi would call it). After a couple of days of playing with lyrics, I made a rough draft of it this morning. And by rough, I’m talking how you feel the morning after twelve tequilas and a bump on the head. Case in point – the cicadas in the background. So as long as you listen to it in summer, you should be sweet…



I’s walking down the street when I saw her pretty face.
I’s thinking to myself man I bet she’s worth the chase.
Around the corner then I realized she was gone.
I shrugged and stood a while, grabbed my heart and kicked it on.

I say, mmm mmm, best things in life are free.
Mmm mmm just got to find the one for me.

I’s playing volleyball when I dived across the sand.
And though the point was lost, I heard her clapping hands.
I thought her admiration, would one day lead to fornication, but
Despite my remonstrations, she grabbed her ball and went on home.

Saying, Mmm mmm, best things in life are free.
She says, mmm mmm, but you’ll get none of that from me.

So after years of searching, I finally found my girl.
And ‘spite that old cliche, well, I think she is my world.
After a few missed chances, awkward moments and seductive glances,
Endpoint was true romance, and we’re still dancing now.

Singing, mmm mmm, best things in life are free.
Mmm mmm and I have found the one for me (x2)

Hope you like it 🙂 I just hope Joe Satriani hasn’t written a riff like this!
