Lyrics
I was over at your apartment
and you took the time to show me
your photos
to prove that you were cute once.
Well, I never said I didn't believe you,
but, in fact, I didn't believe you
but your photos...
they proved that you were cute once.

If I had a time machine,
after meeting Jackie Robinson and putting all my money on Microsoft
I'd win your heart and date you through most of the nineties.
That was when things went downhill
I don't know what happened but I really think that's when you lost your luster girl
But I'd be proud to date you through most of the nineties.

Now we're back at your apartment
and I'll hold you if you turn the lights off
I'll hold, I'll hold the girl who was cute once.
Like Proust remembering days past
Your body taught me beauty don't last
But your photo,
It froze the girl who was cute once.

If I had a time machine,
after meeting Jackie Robinson and putting all my money on Microsoft
I'd win your heart and date you through most of the nineties.
That was when things went downhill
I don't know what happened but I really think that's when you lost your luster girl
But I'd be proud to date you through most of the nineties.

excellent concept
this is a good song writing in my book - thanks! I do wish though that your voice was more "live" - its the only thing that detracts from the song as compared to the rest of the timbre it is a bit "forward" - I'll just assume artistic license on that one.

This is hilarious! I'd be cool if you put up all of the lyrics? Very unique.

fun tune - terrible effect
that's so sad but it rings so true. this is a terrific concept. reminds me of something laptop would do. good tune. but drop the damn autotuner. even if you can't sing a note it will sound better than that thing.

autotuner
I thought that at first but I actually think the autotuner on the voice adds its own unique charm to the lyrics.

I'd like to hear this
in your natural voice. I believe this sort of encounter could happen. I didn't think so at the time but I realize I was cute once too. Nice song. And very entertaining. Thanks.
