Justify My Love

16 Jun

No other songs brings to smile to my face like this one. REASON????

While at St. Mary’s College, a girl whom I had escorted to her Graduation the year before, handed me a note in the street and walked briskly off. On opening the note, there I saw the lyrics for this song but somehow they had a local flair to them. I was touched by the note but being young and foolish, i shared it with all and sundry and it became a standard joke for a while. I can’t remember what i did with that note after that, but the memory is still fresh as ever and positive.  Secondary school is always filled iwth images and situations we all wish to forget, I’m glad I am able to recall such a good experience.

 

Although I was a right "git" for showing it off, she never hated me for it and we laughed about it later on. Now below is the same song with my alterations attached to it. Only the first two lines belong to my Convent friend as they are the only lines that are etched in my head.  It was a beautiful sentiment. Hopefully my version will bring joy to whomever I decide to stalk and show attention to (LOL). Right now it is purely for your amusement.

 

Enjoy!!

 

 

JUSTIFY MY LOVE (Somewhat Altered)

 

I wanna kiss you in Cascade

I wanna hold your hand in La Horquettta

I wanna see you run naked in a rainstorm (or just naked will do)

Make love in a maxi cross-country

You put this in me

So now what, so now what?

 

Wanting, needing, waiting

For you to justify my love

Hoping, praying

For you to justify my love

 

I want to know you

Not like that (Yuh Tink?)

I don’t wanna be your mammee

I don’t wanna be your brother either

I just wanna be your dou dou

I wanna be your daddy too

Kiss me, that’s right, kiss me

 

Wanting, needing, waiting

For you to justify my love

Hoping, praying (like a whore in Mecca)

For you to justify my love

Yearning, burning (Not the ointment type)

For you to justify my love

 

What are you gonna do?

What are you gonna do?

Talk to me — tell me your dreams

Am I in them? (No?)

Tell me your fears

Am I still in them? (I Bet)

Tell me your stories ( The good ones)

I’m not afraid of a restraining order

We can fly!

 

Poor is the man

Whose pleasures depend

On the permission of another

Love me, that’s right, love me

I wanna be your doolahin

 

Wanting, needing, waiting

For you to justify my love

Hoping, praying (like ten pundits)

For you to justify my love

I’m open and ready (well not that wide)

For you to justify my love

To justify my love

Wanting, to justify

Waiting, to justify my love

Praying, to justify (not left or right)

To justify my love

I’m open, to justify my love
