Sometimes inspiration hits at the weirdest times. I woke up at 3:30 AM with the first scraps of this melody running through my head; I grabbed a piece of manuscript paper and started writing. By mid-morning, I'd fleshed out the lyrics and harmony, and decided I would record it on the spot. I hope you enjoy this little tune that is, as of now, only 12 hours old!


I've never had fame or fortune to spare,
a work-a-day guy who's had to earn his share;
but I keep steady on, from sunset to the dawn,
I'll build my love into your heart.

A hammer and nail, a paint-brush and pail,
I work for my dough, come fortune or come fail.
I may not have a lot, but with the care I've got,
I'll build my love into your heart.

Your other beaus wear fancy clothes
perfected at the Ivy League.
A sen-ti-men-tal loaf-er is all I am,
but I'll be the sob to finish the job.

The blue-print is clear, foundation is new;
I'll frame out a life that's custom made for two.
I'll punch the clock each day, from late June to mid May,
I'll build my love into your heart.
