The Man of 1000 songs

Along with my favorite power pop songs that Rick wrote for his band “The Kats” there are some truly beautifully written songs like “Pretend that you love me” here are the lyrics. it reminds me of a Jefferson Airplane song:

PRETEND THAT YOU LOVE ME
Music and Lyrics by
Frederick George Moore and Mark Winger
Copyright © 1969

I’ve got something to tell you
I’m not trying to sell you
But I need someone to love me
Baby please PRETEND
THAT YOU LOVE ME
Before I drown in the sea
Of misery, 
And you better respond
To my plea
I’m begging you woman
Pretend you’re in love with me
Let’s pretend we’re in loveAnd my life isn’t easy
Without you beside me
So if you’ve got a kind heart
Baby you can start
To pretend
And maybe soon, or in the end
You won’t need pretendAnd you better listen
To what I say
I’m telling you baby
Pretend you’re in love today
Let’s pretend we’re in love

And if you won’t come around
There’s not much I can say
I know pretending isn’t easy
Just take another day
And try to play the part

If you’ve got something to tell me
Come right out and tell me
‘Cause I need someone to love me
Baby please PRETEND
THAT YOU LOVE ME
Before I drown in the sea
Of misery

Pretend that you love me
