My original song for SpinTunes 4, round 3. See: http://commonlisp.bandcamp.com/track/... for the audio and notes including lyrics.

The challenge was to write a song words that all start with only seven different letters of the alphabet. The letters I chose are I, O, Y, M, L, A, and W. I actually screwed up when I was re-taking the vocal, and sang "this" instead of "my lullaby," which resulted in getting disqualified from the contest. That was disappointing but I wasn't too unhappy about it since I am still pleased with the song I came up with.

I owe you my life, my love
All I am and all I own is yours

When we met long years ago, you
Welcomed me with love and laughter

My incandescent love I owe you
Another year's improvisation

I'll melt with willing obligation
I offer you my lullabye

I owe you my life, my love
All I am and all I own is yours

Adieu, my lady love
I owe you my life
