don't tell me what I know

Done! Once the ideas come flowing...

You only need to find just one perfect match for each part of the melody (verse, chorus, lift, bridge), then the rest is routine. As lifts Holger wanted just "Aaaah" as he sung in the sketch. Nothing for me to do there. Then he told me that he would need four verses, and that he would like to have a male and a femal part in the song because MotorPlanet has two singers, himself and Nici. That meant that I should have to tell two different stories - or perspectives - that, in a way, share the same message.

I made them both cheat on the other ;-) I'm quite happy with what I've come up, I hope MotorPlanet will be, too:


HE
no use that you beat 'bout the bush
don't think that I don't know what happened
I sort of smell another man

hey girl, _ just get off your tush
I'm sick of all your lame excuses
just make your exit while you can

Aaaah...

don't tell me
don't tell me
what I know

I can see
I can see
'cause it shows

SHE
you're right it's gone on for awhile
did you think that I'm your possession
I have the right to have some fun

I am honest, without guile
while you had girls in quick succession
maybe it's better if I'm gone

Aaaah...

don't tell me
don't tell me
what I know

I can see
I can see
'cause it shows

BOTH
don't tell me
don't tell me
what I know

I can see
I can see
'cause it shows

......

NOTES:
"hey girl, _ just get off your tush"
needs a little rest after "girl" to match the tune

"man", "can", "fun", "gone"
might be sung as
ma-an, ca-an, fu-un, gu-un (to fit the 'template' perfectly)
