Full Service Love Music and Lyrics by Mary Ott Copyright 1993

When I was a child
I would run along side,
My brother?s Studebaker
Hopin? for a ride.
Shiny chrome bumpers
And push button start,
It was right then and there,
That I learned my part.
Chasin? after something,
That I thought I?d want,
The runnin? after,
Was the prize and taunt.

Years did go by
And I grew to full bloom.
Somewhere along the line,
I never met my groom.
So many models,
To test drive and see.
Too many options
And so much gadgetry.
But self service romance,
Has become quite a bore,
Crank up the throttle babe,
I?m ready for more.


I want a Full Service Love,
A man who?s not afraid
To come and check under the hood.
I want a Full Service Love,
Not the kind who?d service hours,
Are only when it?s good.

Verse 2

Takin? my cue
From the current fashion.
Lease out with option,
And return it when your done.
So much to choose from
And so little time,
That?s what you?re thinkin?
In the back of your mind.
But something that?s worthy,
Exacts quite a price,
A love that lastin?
For the rest of your life.

Chorus: Same as above
