Only at the Gancer: Another Edition To Song Lyric Analysis

I have done a number of these, either analyzing each and every lyric of a song I like, or in this case, having someone respond to what the singer says - with the singer only responding with actual lyrics.  Does that make sense?  Just read and find out what I'm trying to say here . . .

"We've Got Tonight" by Bob Seger

Bob Seger: I know it's late, I know you're weary 
I know your plans don't include me.

Drunk Girl: I never plan, per say, to have drunk dudes hitting on me.  I just always sorta happens . . .

BSStill here we are, both of us lonely 
Longing for shelter from all that we see 

DG: Hey, you seem lonely, but don't assume I am.  Actually, I was trying to get back to my friends before you stepped in front of me on my way back from the ladies' room.

BSWhy should we worry, no one will care girl 
Look at the stars so far away 

DG: Oh, now he's going on about the stars.  This is a new one, actually.  And I know for a fact people will certainly care because I see my friends over there laughing at me for entertaining your proposal for this long.  

BSWe've got tonight, who needs tomorrow? 
We've got tonight, babe 
Why don' you stay? 

DG: We can't stay, Bob.  It's past last call and they've turned the lights on, and yeah, you're even less good looking as a result.  

BS: Deep in my soul, I've been so lonely 
All of my hopes, fading away 
I've longed for love, like everyone else does 

I know I'll keep searching, even after today

DG: If I could offer some advice, don't let a girl in on the fact that you're extremely lonely.  The pity approach rarely works.  Exude some confidence, Bob!  Trust me on this.  

BS: So there it is girl, I've said it all now 
And here we are babe, what do you say?

DG: No, I can't.  I seriously have to get up early and . . .

BSWe've got tonight, who needs tomorrow? 
We've got tonight, babe 
Why don't you stay?

BS: Ah, what the hell.  I have done a lot worse, and you make some solid points.  

(meanwhile, back at Bob's shitty apartment)      

BSWe've got tonight, who needs tomorrow? 
Let's make it last, let's find a way 
Turn out the light, come take my hand now 

DG: Yes.  Lights out.  This is for sure a light's out encounter.  Let's just get it done, okay?

This is so good! I also really liked your interpretation of LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out"

Kenneth Noisewater said...

Coke: Thanks for reading this one and thanks so much for reading others. Boom!!!!!! "I know it's late . . . " Is it working?

"We've got tonight, who needs tomorrow? Let's make it last, let's find a way"

There seems to be a contradiction in those suggestions, although I suppose it depends exactly what he wants to make last.

Kenneth Noisewater said...

Bob is no two pump chump. He makes it last like muthafucka.

You mean someone actually fucked that guy for him to write that shit???

Kenneth Noisewater said...

Bama: Oh, I assume he rocked a lot of worlds, the majority of those worlds being in the state of Michigan.

Next time he comes around we should goto a show. Unfortunately he was in town earlier this month.

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Oh hell we call that a mercy fu*k..

Kenneth Noisewater said...

JDM: Yes. He needs to come to smaller spots than the United Center.

Candy: Yup. I lived and died by those for a while. Both on the giving and receiving end.
