Linda singing karaoke on our Honeymoon, on Cape Cod, early June 1993
Two nights after we had gotten engaged, only four nights after we had met;
We went to my favorite karaoke place, where I was a seasoned vet!
But Linda had never been to one, her nerves were all on edge;
I said, “Honey, you will have no problem”, to her I made that pledge!
For we had sung some songs together, on the radio and at “The Dance”;
Where only six short days ago, we had found our true romance!
She said, “I am ready now to do this, and conquer all my fears”;
I said, “Sweetheart, you will knock them dead, now go and sing my dear’!
My friend the DJ Joey, smiled and handed her the mike;
She pulled her neckline to let some air in, said “I hope what I sing you like”!
The audience all waited, to hear her do the song;
It took them not long to realize, that on stage did she belong!
When her gifted performance ended, they gave her ovations very loud;
She was an instant star sensation, and had wooed all in the crowd!
That was almost twenty-six years ago, and she still can belt one out;
The crowds are still all cheering, “Bravo”, they always shout!
I remember well
The first time that you made love
To a microphone
