4. Love By Numbers

(Joey Kulkin photo and lyrics)

Love By Numbers

one plus one is minus-two
eight and eight is fifty-eight
nine times twelve is one hundred and six
guys and gals sometimes don't mix.

asked Merry to be my wife
laughed in my face
then dissed my life.
asked her again
to walk happily
but it wasn't me
she would marry.

Merry moved far
east oyster bay
fell for a punk 

named johnny ray.
little does she know
johnny ray is a pimp
and i found the one
who feeds me shrimp.

Merry found out
and gave me a call
Merry found out
and began to crawl
Merry found out
and returned to me,
and i laughed at her
quite merrily.

one plus one is minus-two
eight and eight is fifty-eight
nine times twelve is one hundred and six
guys and gals sometimes don't mix.
some guys and gals they just don't mix.
sometimes guys and gals they just don't mix.
