Well, happy Valentine's Day! And if you want your Valentine's date to work out properly, don't play them "The Trade", which sort of grew out of the things people say to each other in movies, like "I wouldn't trade you for the world", for instance, which sounds fine on the surface; but I imagined a woman feeling ornery enough to question that sentiment, wondering perhaps if it implies a second list of things you might trade her for. This got me started on writing what might be one of the worst Valentine's Day songs ever -and then, fearing my own valentine might misunderstand, I wrote a backup song, "Baby Times Five", which I hoped might fill the need for a simple, straight-forward, sincere (albeit slight) love song.

Just be glad you're not married to me, and pardon me if I don't tell you how this works out...
