"The Deal" as written by and Amy Rigby Bill Demain....
So here's the deal for you and me

I've worked it out oh so carefully

It's all about two people who

Will only do what they want to do

And though nobody else has yet succeeded

We could be the first to get what we both need

Without a compromise



We won't expect too much

“It's optional” will be our mantra

Forget that couple stuff

We're giving nothing up

And getting what we want



Traditional is out of date

The perfect match and the soul mate

The time is here to blaze a trail

If things get weird we can always bail

There'll be no need to keep our best intentions

We'll dispose of all those moldy old conventions



We won't expect a lot

Commitment-free will be our motto

We'll go with what we've got

We're giving nothing up

And giving it a shot



Oh should we find emotion creeping in

We'll deal with it then



(Instr.)



The odds predict that one in two will split

So what the hell?



We won't expect too much

“It's optional” will be our mantra

Forget that couple stuff

Forget about love

That's the deal

It's optional
