WAR FOR LOVE

WORDS BY: Bettina Johnson MUSIC BY: Bettina Johnson & David Waehner

Driving ‘round town in a 69 Caddy
Top was down I thought who could THAT be?
Couldn’t be a city boy looked a little green
Lord I was used to fast cars and rides in limousines

Heard from Adrienne, Hon he’s got a girlfriend
Right there decided I would fight to win
I’d lie, steal, cheat…be a little crass
Made sure that he got sick of her and tossed her on her ass!

All is fair its war for love
All I did was give him a shove
Heaven forgive me for going to extremes
Got him out of his Caddy into my limousine
All is fair in love and war
My only sin was needing him more
Gonna start a battle, gonna start a fight
She won’t see me coming, be a long long night

Followed him around though he never knew
When he showed interest had to play it cool
Started to pursue me as far as I could see
Wherever I was, was where he’d be!

Thought I must be crazy he’s NOT my type
The kinda guys I like are rock star right
Can’t even dance doesn’t own one guitar
Just drives around town in that damn old car!

All is fair its war for love
All I did was give him a shove
Heaven forgive me for going to extremes
Got him out of his Caddy into my limousine

Hey now wait don’t call me names!
Angels weep, the devil stokes his flames
She called me up when he showed her the door
Nasty names and then she declared war
But it was too late when she started playing games
He had a taste of me I made him go insane!
Yes I did…

All is fair in love and war
My only sin was needing him more
Tell me how could this love be so wrong
It’s been many years now and our loves still strong

All is fair its war for love
All I did was give him a shove
Heaven forgive me for going to extremes
Got him out of his Caddy into my limousine.

Hands off bitch…he’s mine…he’s mine…
