about

Says Robi: "A workmate and I were listening to some music at a party -- talking about song writing -- when a Joe Ely number started to play. I could have sworn the opening line was, 'This song is gonna make you mad,' which I thought was an excellent opener for a song (as it happens it was not the actual line in Ely's song!). No matter: My buddy and I agreed to pen new songs over the weekend and share them on Monday and 'This song is gonna make you mad' had to be opening line for whatever we came up with. As I drove home my song pretty much wrote itself. On Monday I came to work with this brand-spanking-new number. When I went to share it with my friend -- surprise! -- he'd forgotten all about it and had nothing to share. Ah well. This bit of levity goes out to you, Craig H., ya lazy bastard!"

lyrics

This song is going to make you mad
This song is going to make you buy new clothes
You're not the best I've had
Oh, baby, but you're coming awfully close
You can run to the bedroom, pull the covers up tight
But you know you'll feel much better with an all-night pillow fight

Once upon a time you made me angry
But I swear I was only bluffing and proud
Can't you see that I'm still hungry
Oh, baby, you knock my stuffing out
I'll chase you to the bedroom if you try to hide
'Cos you know everything will be better with an all-night pillow fight

It's an all-night pillow fight
It's an all-night pillow fight
Anything wrong is gonna be all right
After an all-night pillow fight

You little flirt in my boxers and shirt
And your tasty little tongue on your delicious upper lip
I'm not a fighter I'm a lover under covers
With my pretty pillow pugilist

It's an all-night pillow fight
It's an all-night pillow fight
Anything goes in the middle of the night
In an all-night pillow fight

I wrote a song and it made you angry
If this is it I apologize
But I can see that you're still hungry
Your kiss is sweet while the feathers fly
Let's stay inside the bedroom and lock the door
And make peace in our silky sheets 'cos the bed's mightier than the sword

It's an all-night pillow fight
It's an all-night pillow fight
Anything wrong is gonna be all right
After an all-night pillow fight

It's an all-night pillow fight
It's an all-night pillow fight
The laughter floats as the feathers fly
In an all-night pillow fight
