While I play matchmaker just like cupid,
you rip apart relationships cause' you think they're stupid.
Though I'm disgusted with the way you act,
I kinda like you cause' opposites attract.

While I get all A+'s in school,
you drop-out cause' you're a fool.
Though you're dumb as a matter of fact,
I still kinda like you cause' opposites attract.

Why do I feel this way?
Of a bum who's below my league?
Go away is what I should say,
but I've fallen for your intrigue.

So, why don't we colaborate?
We could learn from this love so much.
Then, we can go celebrate.
Then decide to keep in or out of touch.

While I go out and help everyone,
you party and have some fun.
But, staying together will be our pact,
cause' opposites attract.

one night at the airport...Childhood Memories...eight short weeks...your countenance...just watching tv...hoarse whispers...My One and Only...Tribute to M.J....Feel the need?...serving wench...the mistress...stolen hours...Perfection...devotion...Master...apart

I'm hip to that. My wife and I are definitly different sides of the coin, but we compliment each other so well. Nicely done. However, I must confess being thrown by the shift in rhyming half way through.
