It is no ordinary love I have for the music of Sade

I love them all ... and will never forget the day ...
I called into the station to give the d.j. the songs
Each one heard, with times played right along ...

But he told me the songs I listed weren't played in a row
You could have fooled me ... for I'd heard them bestowed
Just that way ... from early morning till the moment I called
Listing every title, along with the time started (the exact tool)

But the grand prize was not to be mine on that day ...
For my interpretation of "in a row" was not their say
So, once again ... I'd missed the boat ... sailed on ...
As I looked on from the dock ... and sang my sad song

- Tristram
