Beautiful Evening

I spent the first part of it cleaning my folks' place in anticipation of their return on Wednesday, from their winter in Mexico.

Okay, that's not the beautiful bit.

Now I sit with a book, the Ink Spots singing in the background (thanks for the recommendation T!), the vanilla candles burning and my mouth watering in anticipation of a late dinner... roast organic chicken on a bed of steamed leeks. Hurry up and finish cooking, dagnabit!


If I Didn't Care
(Jack Lawrence / Milton Ager)

If I didn't care more than words can say
If I didn't care would I feel this way?
If this isn't love then why do I thrill?
And what makes my head go 'round and 'round
While my heart stands still?

If I didn't care would it be the same?
Would my ev'ry prayer begin and end with just your name?
And would I be sure that this is love beyond compare?
Would all this be true if I didn't care for you?

MONOLOGUE:
If I didn't care honey child, mo' than words can say.
If I didn't care baby, would I feel this way?
Darlin' if this isn’t love, then why do I thrill so much?
What is it that makes my head go 'round and 'round
while my heart just stands still so much ?

If I didn't care would it be the same?
Would my ev'ry prayer begin and end with just your name?
And would I be sure that this is love beyond compare?
Would all this be true if I didn't care for you?

I love the way that every single Inkspots song starts the same way.

My favourite is Java Jive:

I love coffee, I love tea, I love the java jive and it loves me.
