Lyrics

TOO MUCH FORGIVENESS

I know I screwed up, made awful mistakes
What I done was so wrong, it gives me the shakes
Shoulda known better, should act more my age
Why don't you scold me and show me some rage?

You're making me guilty by not getting mad
This thing that I done was really quite bad

CHORUS:
Way too much love and not enough pain
I give no resistance but I am to blame
The way you treat me feels so much like thanking
Too much forgiveness and not enough spanking

I committed a sin, it was unjustified
Confessed it to you and I told no lies
You let me off easy, a slap on my hand
But now guilt's set in, I can't understand

CHORUS:
Way too much love and not enough pain
I give no resistance but I am to blame
The way you treat me feels so much like thanking
Too much forgiveness and not enough spanking

BRIDGE
Ex malo bonum
Out of bad comes good
Ex malo bonum
Out of bad comes good

CHORUS:
Way too much love and not enough pain
I give no resistance but I am to blame
The way you treat me feels so much like thanking
Too much forgiveness and not enough spanking

Well done example of jump blues, all the performances are right on. Very authentic. Song and recording both have commercial potential, I'd definitely listen to more of these folks stuff.

Hot jazz piece! Love the lyrics, arrangement, and instrumentation! You're a true professional.
