Since I blogged this week (even if they were teeny tiny posts), I’m giving myself permission to do a Jam of the Week.

I’ve had this song lined up for a few months weeks now. I like it because it’s supersweet. And I’m a big sucker for sweet. The sentiment behind the song can’t be beat.

However…

The lyrics themselves, especially in the first verse, crack me up. Maybe it’s because I fancy myself to be a writer that I don’t find the lyrics to be, umm, very sophisticated. I don’t think the writer can expect to win any songwriting contests with:

If you be the cash
I’ll be the rubberband
You be the match
Imma be your fuse
Boom!
Painter baby you
Could be the muse
I’m the reporter baby
You could be the news
Cause your the cigarette
And I’m the smoker
We raise a bet…
Cause you’re tha joker
Truth tho…
You are the chalk
And I could be the blackboard
And you can be the talk
And I could be the walk

See what I mean? Or am I being too harsh?

I do love the song though. That’s why Miguel’s Sure Thing is the Jam of the Week.
