Into the New Year Peter and I were married on New Year’s Eve. We went to ‘Cousin Brucie’s’ New Year’s Eve party at his loft in New York City. Cousin Brucie announced it and everyone cheered and toasted. Now it is coming on to forty five years later, forty five years, a ripe old age […]

JUST CAN’T DO IT (IF I’M NOT IN LOVE)
Written by Melanie Safka

Well I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
And I’m not in love with you

There was this song I used to sing
This kinda was the gist
If you can’t be with the one you love
Love the one you’re with
I’m not into being used
Or making someone a fool
And I’m not in love with you

And I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
And I’m not in love with you

Back in my room I got a vibrator
Gonna turn into a chronic imaginator

But I just can’t do it, uh, uh, uh
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
And I’m not in love with you

Oh I’m real, real lonely and it’s been so long
But there’s just some things a girl must do alone
Though I’d like to do the things you want to do
I’m not in love with you

And I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
And I’m not in love with you
(See you tomorrow)
I’m not in love
(With my clothes on)
I’m not in love
(Not ‘cause I’m Catholic)
I’m not in love with you
