Lyrics

Send My Love

Written By: David Abbinanti

VERSE 1
I’ve been running after something
But it’s all too hard to find
And I found the grass is only greener
When it’s growing in my mind
I promise that I love you but the world got in the way

VERSE 2
I’ve been in love with my illusions
Falling hard for the unknown
To learn that all that I’ve been looking for
Is waiting back at home
I promise that I love you and I won’t be long
I promise that I love you and I know where I belong
But when I’m gone won’t you

CHORUS
Send my love to everyone you meet
Send my love to everybody on the street
Send my love cause you got me
Wrapped around your little finger
It was only a question of when
I’d fall in love again

VERSE 3
I’ll be coming home tomorrow
After traveling so far
So all the girls from New York City
Can remind me how beautiful they are
I promise that I love you as I turn a page
I promise that I love you,
Promise me you won’t change
But ‘til I see you

CHORUS

Back To Las Vegas

Written By: David Abbinanti

VERSE 1
I got a week off from the job and a ticket to the west
I got no bills that I care to pay
I got a few grand in the bank waiting to see the world
And a flight leaving tomorrow from J.F.K.

CHORUS
I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go back to Las Vegas
I wanna throw, I wanna throw my hard-earned money all away
And I know I'm gonna be in luck
I'll be drinking 'til the sun comes up
In my little town no one knows about…Las Vegas

VERSE 2
I got a new suit packed away with a ‘64 Merlot
I got a view waiting at the Bellagio
I got some friends driving out, they're gonna meet me from L.A.
We'll get some front row seats to a David Cassidy show

CHORUS

VERSE 3
I'll bring a box of Cuban cigars that my cousin brought in for me
I can't wait to put one of them between my lips
There's just one more thing I gotta do before I'm on that plane
Call my girlfriend and tell her I got another business trip

CHORUS

Yeah I’ll leave without two dimes to rub
I know I’ll blow it all in some strip club
In my little town no one knows about…Las Vegas

Beer Goggles

Written By: David Abbinanti

VERSE 1
She wasn’t lookin’ so good. She wasn’t lookin’ so hot
But she was lookin’ for something that I got
I wasn’t worried or frightened. I got her out of my sight
Because with every cold one she looked more alright

CHORUS
And so give me one more minute for your love
‘Cause I can’t make you pretty fast enough
Yeah and I know you feel lonely, I feel lonely too
But I need my beer goggles so I can make love to you

VERSE 2
I never gave her my number, just a fake e-mail account
But somehow or another she tracked me down
And said, “I’m going out tomorrow. I hope I’m gonna see you too.”
I said, “Well I’ll be drinking ‘till you don’t look like you.”

CHORUS
And now give me one more minute for your love
‘Cause I can’t make you pretty fast enough
Yeah I know you feel lucky, I feel lucky too
But I need my beer goggles so I can make love to you

BRIDGE
And then I don’t know how it happened quite so fast
But I started thinking that this love could last

VERSE 3
And so I invited her over. No beer no buzz.
Tonight I’d show her who I really was
And I took her up to the bedroom. We were rolling along.
But I couldn’t figure out what took so long

She said, “How about a drink for my hunk?
You know you’re only useful when you’re drunk!
Yeah, I know you thought you had me, that ain’t really true
Now put on your beer goggles so I can make love to you
Your beer goggles so I can make love to you
Beer goggles, I wanna make love to you.”
