"Dog Day Afternoon" as written by and Laraaji Mayumi Tachibana....
I finished watchin dog day afternoon
Stormed out of a house unfamiliar to you
To go and find some way to show to you
I'm miserable without you near

A semi-automatic would work
I'm sure I've never even used one of these before
But it seems to demonstrate to them
How crazy were in love for all of time
(you just don't know it yet)

I want you to know
I've never believed a word that you said
When your sayin its for the best
I'm sayin lets take a rest
Our loves better off dead

I waited by the phone
To see if demands were going to be met
At the mayors hands
Cuz surely you would call
And say "Oh baby your so brave"
Then I'd hang up

I would execute the first
then the next
till the last
and wait for you to make some grand entrance

But make love in the vault
locked away sirens sound
but that's okay cause I'll let em come

I want you to know
I never believe a word that you said
if you said its for the best
well I'm sayin lets take a rest
our loves better off dead

Everything that I have done well I have done to you Promise you wont be mad at me for doing what I have to do to you close your eyes an smile wide were getting out of here promise you wont be mad no you wont no no

I still want you to know
i never believed a word you said
if you said it for the best
well I'm sayin lets take a rest
out loves dead oh no

your sayin its for the best
your better off
your better off
your better off
if sayin its for the best
I'm sayin lets take a rest
our loves better off dead oh no

    General CommentThe movie dog day afternoon is about robbing a bank to pay for a lover's sex change operation, and the song sticks pretty close to that general theme.. about doing the impossible to help someone you love.
