Okay, speed writing done. Pretty funny song. Meshed the first four responses I saw together into one tune. Firstly it covers all of confused-outta-my-mind’s bases: “love, music, free, fun”. I read pokeopa’s “dinosaurs” and pengwenny’s “traveling, maps, globes, suitcases” at the same time, and instantly thought of Jurassic Park. Like a crazy trip you’d take. But why? Then I read your-new-beginning’s “faith in love again”, and I had my reason and my chorus. A couples retreat at Jurassic Park would be pretty effective I think. Thanks for playing along, bloggers; gems are created by pressure. I really appreciated the other responses, too, and may use them sometime soon. Enjoy everyone! — Kavalier Calm
Couples Retreat at Jurassic Park
We should have read the fine print
when we signed up for that couples retreat.
The ad said it would challenge us,
but we didn’t know what that means.
Well, we traveled by helo to the far side of the globe,
an island not listed on any map.
And we smiled as the pilot waved goodbye;
we didn’t know we were in a trap.
It wasn’t until we faced death
that we found faith in our love again.
We walked up to the resort house,
but there was no one at the check in desk.
In fact, there was no one in sight;
and thus began our test.
With one giant roar—ROAR,
we turned our heads to the door.
And much to my surprise and yours,
in walked a dinosaur.
I was so scared, I was glad
I remembered to pack extra underwear.
You grabbed my arm, and we screamed
as we high-tailed it out of there.
That dinosaur was in hot pursuit,
and I knew if we kept running, he’d catch you.
I screamed “Go on, I’ll distract him
because only one of us can make it through.”
But you refused to go on without me:
“If one must go, then he gets both.”
And you grabbed my hand and kissed me,
as that dino grew close.
But when that T-Rex was mere feet away,
he powered down like some robot.
The retreat director stepped from the shadows
and said, “Congrats you’re in love.”
What do you think? Should I make this available for download?
