Radio XXX, side B, track 7: “I Beg Your Pardon (I Never Promised You A Rose Garden)” by Kon Kan

Kon Kan - I Beg Your PardonOh, Kon Kan, yay!!!!  I just got done eating a pretty hefty veggie burger and some fries, so I’m feeling kind of lethargic, so I wasn’t able to get my butt moving like I usually do when this, the greatest of all songs, started playing, but what I did do was to rest my chin in my hands and read the lyrics and listen to the music all with a big lazy dreamy smile on my face.  Unbeknownst to me at the time, but this would be the last time I’d tape this particular song of yours, Kon Kan.  It’s been a great run getting to revisit this one over and over and more importantly, getting to listen to it again.  And even though this particular track is marred slightly by some of that dreaded static, it still makes me unbelievably happy.  Thanks for justifying all the hours I spent in front of my radio recording music, Kon Kan.  You helped me keep the faith alive.

“I Beg Your Pardon (I Never Promised You A Rose Garden)”

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa yeah!

Here we go!

<awesome Kon Kan jam>

There once was a time and there once was a way
We had somethin’ goin’ and to my dismay
Attention to me seemed to drift though I don’t know where

And when we’re alone seems there’s nothin’ to say
I bring up a topic, you push it away
Ya say that you do but I think it’s just you don’t care

Why do I feel you’re using me

<awesome Kon Kan jam>

Are we an item or are we just two
I need some commitment’s all I ask of you
Your lifestyle can change, don’t be ‘fraid what you think’s in store

I know what’s on your mind, you’ve got lots to lose
Your shallow acquaintances, what’s there to choose
You won’t get too deep even though I’m worth so much more

So think about it carefully

Smile for a while and let’s be jolly
Lo-lo-lo-love shouldn’t be so melancholy
Co-co-co-come along and share the good times wh-wh-while we caaaan

<awesome Kon Kan jam>

Do you want ta hustle?

Do you want ta salsa?

Do you want ta hustle?

Do you want ta salsa?

If that’s how you want it that’s how it’ll be
There’s no use in trying or making you see
That love don’t come easy, you don’t know what it’s about

To get things together won’t take any pain
Don’t need to see, hear from you ever again
From this day on, listen, but no more, please count me out

And you know what I’m talkin’ ’bout

Smile for a while and let’s be jolly
Lo-lo-lo-love shouldn’t be so melancholy
Co-co-co-come along and share the good times wh-wh-while we caaaan

<awesome Kon Kan jam>

I know now’s the time that I went to find something new

You know it’s your crime that I’m out to find someone, too

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa yeah!
