about

I wrote this saucy little poem years ago and just found it in my notebook recently. I had written it when I was mad at someone I guess, I don’t remember. But I thought it was funny so I passed it along to my friend Greg Beattie who also co-wrote another song with me a few years ago, Complicated. Greg put a tune to the poem and we re-worked some of the lines to make them work. He is the one who came up with the best line in the song ☺ - Nell Robinson

lyrics

"Pants" Lyrics

Happy Birthday I sent you a gift
Just to not hear you whine
How’d you get by this long without one?
I’m sending you a spine
Oh it comes with my fond regards
Since you’ve tuned out my rants
Since someone else is wearing yours
I’ve included a pair of pants
Oh baby put some pants on
Take a stance on something please
Show your potential, don’t be deferential
If you want to have a chance with me
No I’m not mad, not at all
Fact is, I’m doing real good
The question is how are you?
Since someone stole your manhood
I’m only thinking, yes thinking of you
It’s only because I care
I’ve enclosed a little pear tree
So you can grow yourself a pair
Oh baby out some pants on
Take a stance on something please
Show your potential don’t be deferential
If you want to have a chance with me
If you want to dance a dance with me
Don’t go commando
Baby take a stance and a chance to romance me
