about

This extremely emotional song I've written for my wife opens up my vulnerability as a songwriter. Not being a lead singer, and suffering from a terrible cold, you'll be shocked it was written, arranged, and recorded in about three weeks as auto-tune was stretched to the brink of its capabilities. Normally I don't write sensitive love ballads, and I think you'll hear my struggle as I try to write within this complex genre. You'll also be amazed and confused as I reach deep down into my guts to convey gooey love themes and lyrical landscapes. You may be shocked that little time was spent re-writing lyrics, as most of them were from the first draft.

Being a guitarist who has been focusing primarily on instrumental compositions and who normally struggles with just the right words when it comes to how I feel, I hope you'll see how much care and time was spent with this tribute to the unity my wife Barbe and I have had over the years. The music video is available on my official website as well as my YouTube page. The video features past and present cats and dogs and other animals we've filmed over the years melded with this ballad to further convey the love an emotion within this arrangement.

SnickerDoodle

Lyrics and Music: Dave Paris

Your love is like a cool breeze blowing thru the curtains of my life
Your love is like kitty whiskers, & everything that’s nice
There’s so many ways I could choose, to show you a love you will never lose,
But this will have to do, as I sing these words & think of you….As my

(chorus)
Snicker-Doodle, you’re the one I love it’s true oh baby,
Snicker-Doodle, I’ve been, Snicker-Doodled again
Snicker-Doodle, You’re cuter than any poodle baby,
Snicker-Doodle, I’ve-been-Snicker-Doodled-again

You’re the caffeine in my coffee, You’re the spice that heats me up
You’re the chocolate in my cocoa, you’re the marshmallow in my cup
You’re the cherry on my sundae, You’re the cookies that were just baked,
you’re the frosting on my cupcake, you’re the sugar on my cornflakes


(pre-chorus)
if love is a highway, then I’m the smashed bug on your car
You make me get all tongue-tied, cuz wherever you go that’s where I are…

(chorus 2)
Snicker-Doodle, you’re the one I love it’s true oh baby,
Snicker-Doodle, I’ve been, Snicker-Doodled again
Snicker-Doodle, Doin’ all that you do, oh baby,
Snicker-Doodle, I’ve been Snicker-Doodled again

[solo]

My love, you’re like a little, bitty, bunny,
hopping through the forest of my heart
But before your love departs you gotta know;
no hunter from hell could ever shoot you down girl…

(chorus 3)
Snicker-Doodle, you’re the one I love it’s true oh baby,
Snicker-Doodle, I’ve been, Snicker-Doodled again
Snicker-Doodle, you know how to [FOR BARBE'S EARS ONLY], baby,
Snicker-Doodle, I’ve been Snicker-Doodled again
