Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now

Description
Quite a while ago I woke up one morning with Neil Sedaka singing this tune in my head, and at first I assumed it was actually one of his tracks. After it wouldn't leave, further research revealed it to be an original, so I figured out the chords, wrote down the lyrics that I had, and left it at that.

A while later, I decided to record it, so I finished up the lyrics and did so. Then I decided my voice wasn't enough like Neil Sedaka's, so I asked NorthPoint if he'd give it a shot, and he did. Then I asked Ruby and Cindy if they'd be willing to do backing vocals and they did. Then I asked my buddy Pete if he'd add saxophone and he did.

Then I let it sit for a while as I worked on other projects until this one burbled back up in my consciousness, and it did. So I finished it up.

And here it is. I can only assume it's a Neil Sedaka song from a parallel universe that found its way here through me.

Lyrics
Oh baby, am I Mister Right
Or am I merely Mister Right Now
Right now, baby? (Baby right now)
Am I Mister Right
Or am I merely Mister Right Now
(Am I Mister Right Now?)

While you hold me tight
Are you planning how to leave me
Right now, baby? (Baby right now)
Am I Mister Right
Or am I merely Mister Right Now
(Am I Mister Right Now?)

You know that I have seen it all a thousand times before
I’ve watched the endless march of wounded men
How many broken hearts have stumbled out your door
Again and again and again and again
And again?

So, will this outlast the night
Or will you cast me casually
Aside now, baby? (Baby right now)
Am I Mister Right
Or am I merely Mister Right Now
(Am I Mister Right Now?)

You know that it has all been seen a thousand times before
I’ve watched the endless march of wounded men
How many broken hearts have stumbled through your door
Again and again and again and again
And again.

So am I Mister Right
Or am I merely Mister Right Now
Right now, baby? (Baby right now)
Am I Mister Right
Or am I merely Mister Right Now
(Am I Mister Right Now?)

Killin!
Yer killin' me. I can't breath. It's flash pulmonary edema, I got to get a smoke going. Lethal dose right here. Your gifts do not extend to the kind of keyboards I hear on this take, but everything else as my imagination works is there. Bravo! Thank you.

Right On
Hahahahahahah!

It is so right on that it was meant to be. Sometimes the perfect concept wills itself into existence.

(Just kidding - you deserve all of the credit for making it happen.)

All essential 60's elements are covered here. Had me smiling all the way. Cool sax solo. Such complex dreams you have :-) We are the beneficiaries, though. Wonderfully realised. Thanks.
