If I could
Baby I’d give you my world
Everything’s waiting for you
it was a few years ago when I was at Ray’s in Hamilton for karaoke. this place was not popular, but it was close to me and my friends, offered cheap drinks and karaoke almost every night of the week. Ray’s had a crowd whose age average was about 50 and was often small enough to allow you to sing at least three songs in one evening - a very solid night of singing, if you ask me.
one night, hosting a couple friends from Toronto, I signed up to sing ‘Go Your Own Way’ hoping that one of them would sing with me. when the time came, my friend bailed. (you know who you are!) I’m still not sure how it happened, but my friends managed to convince a stranger to sing with me. photos of my karaoke partner exist, but unfortunately I don’t remember his name.
oddly, this same night, I do remember the name of one woman who came up to our table to ask if we were single, then proceeded to demonstrate the size of her nephew’s penis with her hands, and gave us her nephew’s phone number on the back of her business card. miss u, Ray’s!
