Please Louise


"Please Louise"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

When you’re with me, I get a little nervous

My hands get shaky and my brain goes out of service

When I’m all alone, alone and blue

All I ever do is dream about you

I can’t dream any longer…

Oh please Louise, you know just what I like 

Please Louise, why can’t I see you tonight?

There’s you and me, and all we could be

It just might happen so I’ll wait and see

My heart’s beatin’ faster can’t you hear that sound

But I’m so tired of waiting, and hanging around

I can’t wait any longer…

Please Louise, you’ve got just what I like

Please Louise, why won’t you change your mind?

I got the blues in more than one way

I’ve paid my dues it’s time to go all the way

I know you think about me when you’re alone

It’s time to round all the bases and head for home

Don’t let me be blue any longer…

Please Louise, when will you be all mine?

Please Louise, why can’t I have you tonight?

I’ll get down on my knees and plead with you babe…

Oh, Please Louise, come out with me tonight

Please Louise, I know I’ll show you a good time

Pretty please, with sugar on top

Just keep on going ‘till I tell you to stop

You please me, and I’ll please you

No need to show me, I know what to do

I ain’t too proud to beg you to change your mind

Brief Description

Please Louise is a song that I originally called Stephanie, who was one of my first girlfriends, but I switched it partly because my wife's middle name is Louise, and kind of out of respect for her to not have a song titled after a past girlfriend, but what I didn't share with her at the time is the fact that by a strange coincidence I also happen to have dated several girls who all had Louise as a middle name.  It has a style of the innocent early rock and roll songs of the late 50s, and it's about the innocence of "dating" for someone at that age, and I suppose that meant asking her to go with me, then wanting to "work on our night moves" as Bob Seger said.  So, I've got a song with a slot there to substitute any three-syllable girl's name, which would be good for tailoring to an audience member in a live setting. Funny how you remember things like that.  Anyway, this was a riff song, and I honestly don't remember if I came up with the riff before the lyrics or not since it was so long ago that I wrote it.  These are rare for me, release-wise, but I have actually written quite a few riff-based tunes over the years, but this was one of the few that made the cut in my weeding out process.  I had been meaning to record a decent version for over a decade until I finally got around to it.
