Romantic Comedy

if i could tape over my life
with a romantic comedy
then that's the way that it would be
and end this tragedy
if i could tape over your life
i'd start with singin' in the rain
and it would never be the same again

the world will kindly break into
it's song and dance number
the curtain rising
a barber shop quartet
is exactly what i need right now
to reassure me in four part harmony

and do we believe what they say
that life is just a cabaret old chum

adoring your performance
and how you always light up the screen
action the cameras rolling
i hope that somewhere waits for us
but just to pass the time
please serenade me
with a simple melody
