about

This song is a result of many conversations with my wife Stephanie (who did a wonderful job on the cover art) about how family and friends can never remember their passwords.

This is a fun little tune I think harkens back to when my grandfather would write silly poems like changing the words to 'Twas the Night for Christmas and made it about a guy from work who tried to swallow a gold fish!

I really like to fingerpick and for whatever reason I don't do it too much when performing live or writing songs. So, I hope you enjoy the finger picking and the tune! I also expect you to have all the lyrics memorized so you can sing along with me at my next show. Good luck!

And if you enjoy the track please consider buying and downloading. It goes a long way to help me keep making and releasing music for you.

lyrics

Love these days can be a difficult venture
Whether you're a spring chicken or have trouble putting in your dentures
So I thought I'd tell you about my story or quest
And how I won the heart of the one I like best
Guaranteed to work for any age or any gender
Though to some a slight mind-bender
Just stick with me and I'll show you how it's done

I got the password to your heart
I took a guess, it wasn't very hard
Like the little kid who figures out how to start an old go-cart
Oh, I got the password to your heart

I used to think a finger print reader's what it takes to get inside
But a love like yours you kept secure so it's key you'll not confide
Face ID is just flirtation without Multi-factor authentication
The secret code; you kept it classified

But, I got the password to your heart
I took a guess, it wasn't very hard
Like the guy on Jeopardy's final round who thinks he's really smart
Oh, I got the password to your heart

The Retinal scan failed to work the first time and I cried
Then I tried to sing "Voice recognition" but that just hurt my pride 
Infrared Illumination for Biometric Identification
The only thing that worked was these keystrokes I tried. 

It's a capitol L and a lowercase o
a hyphen and a v and an e
a 12345678 a star and b and t
backslash ampersand question mark Z
hashtag dollar sign l-m-n-o-p
semicolon birthday eye color phone number 
'nother dash and a right parentheses 
semicolon birthday eye color phone number 
'nother dash and a right parentheses 

I got the password to your heart
I took a guess, it wasn't very hard
Like when Baby Ruth knocked that ball right out of the park
Oh, I got the password to your heart

It's a capitol L and a lowercase o
a hyphen and a v and an e
a 12345678 a star and b and t
backslash ampersand question mark Z
hashtag dollar sign l-m-n-o-p
semicolon birthday eye color phone number 
'nother dash and a right parentheses
semicolon birthday eye color phone number 
'nother dash and a right parentheses  

I got the password to your heart
I took a guess, it wasn't very hard
I only used two fingers just like Django Reinhardt
Oh, I got the password to your heart
