Liner Notes: 

This is the morph of @kahlo's awesome set of lyrics found here http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/47786. I love the use of idioms and I wanted to lean into that. Kahlo's lyrics have a hopeful look towards love so I wanted to spin it in the negative. These lyrics are goofy while also being a bit sad.

Check out the original! The forms of the song are a bit different and I cut some some great lines in my version!

Lyrics: 

V1
I’ve never seen the cat's pajamas
I've never seen the fox's socks
I’ve never seen a honey bees’ knees
Or glanced the dog's bollocks

I’ve never seen my soulmate
Like I've never seen a snake's hips
They both must be out of this world
With all that and a bag of chips

C
Oh there’s a lot of things I’ve never seen
And some things I never will

There’s a lot of things I’ve never seen
And some things I hope to still

V1
I’ve never seen a bed of roses
I've never seen a blue moon
I dreamed a diamond in the rough
But that wish hasn't came true

I've never seen a broken heart
Or seen breath taken away
I've never seen lovers joined at the hip
But I'd love to be that way

C
Oh there’s a lot of things I’ve never seen
And some things I never will

There’s a lot of things I’ve never seen
And some things I hope to still

B
Is it called a match made in heaven
Cause you have to be dead to feel it?
Is all fair in love and war
Cause you have to risk life to believe it?
I've worn my heart on my sleeve
But love is too blind to see it

C
Oh there’s a lot of things I’ve never seen
And some things I never will

There’s a lot of things I’ve never seen
And some things I hope to still
Some things I hope to still
Some things I hope to still

This is really great! I love your addition of more idioms and the fact that you flipped it on its head! Really awesome morph and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here!
