Looks Like You Started Something - Linda Eder

Music: Frank Wildhorn
Lyrics: Jack Murphy

George Washington began a revolution
Which started something called the Constitution
Then all those pioneers with resolution
Progressed...Due West

There's always someone finding a beginning
An Eve to tempt poor Adam into sinning
A doubleday to say: three outs per inning
That's all...Play ball

I was all through with romance
Figured love was kaput
No more pretending, no happy ending
Then like a bolt from the blue
You walked into my life
Clever and charming, slightly alarming
Just when I thought that my love life was all past tense
Suddenly you start making sense

I was prepared to simply call it a day
Ready for love to turn the lights out
Then all my reasons found your rhyme
In the nick of time
Looks like you started something now I wasn't ready for this
Was content all alone
Studio flat, sir, maybe a cat, sir
Hey, this is now that was then
I'm in business again
Using your razor, driving your blazer
Just when I thought my libido was fireproof
You fan my flames right through the roof

You are the lightening striking Ben Franklin's kite
You are the Kitty-Hawk of romance
You are Columbus setting out
'Cause without a doubt
Looks like you started somethin' now

I sense a brand new beginning
Something akin to break of day
You are the start of a new career
You're the crowing of Chanticleer
Saying: "Wake up and smell the coffee"

I don't know where we're going or for how long
So I'll rely on fundamentals:
'Cause if a kiss is still a kiss
Let's not finish this
Looks like you started somethin'...
You really started something'...
Looks like you started somethin' now!
