Friday Song: “What You Want To Do”

Today’s Fearless Songwriter prompt was to “write a song that The Supremes would have sung”. I don’t know if The Supremes would have actually sung a song like this, but it was kind of neat to try to stretch my writing.

Baby, baby darlin’
Baby sweetheart
Why do you look so scared?
I am walking here with you
Please don’t act like
I have never cared

I am so in love with you
You know this is something true

So maybe it’s time
To take a chance
Don’t give it a second glance
Isn’t it something new?
Scary, I know it’s true
But I bet it’s what you want to do

I know everything’s changing
Everything feels so
Upside down
But this is where the love lies
Look in my eyes
Now look around

Nothing ever stays the same
So let’s jump in and play the game

Maybe it’s time
To take a chance
Don’t give it a second glance
Isn’t it something new?
Scary, I know it’s true
But I bet it’s what you want to do

Don’t you worry bout the past
Everything can change so fast

So maybe it’s time
To take a chance
Don’t give it a second glance
Isn’t it something new?
Scary, I know it’s true
But I bet it’s what you want to do
