"Cassanova Brown"
written by Teena Marie
©1983 Midnight Magnet Music Publishing (ASCAP)

*The word "Casanova" is really spelled with one "S," but in an effort to reprint the lyrics exactly as they are from the album sleeve, I have left all spellings of "Casanova" as they appear in the album, with the incorrect spelling of 2 "S"es. (Thanks, Sara!)

My baby's fine
He always keeps me guessing
But never keeps me guessing
About this love
He's had more girls
Than Howard Hughes had money
And you may think it funny
When I say he loves me only
But who are you to say
What he does when I'm not around
Just because I fell in love
with Cassanova Brown

Act II, Scene V
It's my command performance
My name is Clara Voiance
And it's all too deep
I was the one
Who said tune in tomorrow
I love to the bone marrow
Even when I am asleep
And who were you to say
What I did when you weren't around
Just because I fell in love
with you Cassanova Brown

Standing room only
The concert's sold out
Everyone's there for the party
The hush turns to a shout
Everyone's got a piece of the pie
Of you and I
But nobody knows when the lights dim down
That the tears flow harder than the
whole damn crowd
"Throwin' down" my love
Was just about all I could do
Wasn't I the one who said,
I'll have my cake and eat it too
Just couldn't wait any longer
You pushed till I was through
I loved you so
It hurt me, but I had to let --
let you go

Did you hear me crying, baby
It sounded a little bit like this ...
You didn't have to make me cry
Tell me daddy, I ask you why
It's over, it's over, it's over,
it's over
Over before the love turns to hate
Let it end and let's still be friends
Ooo ooo ooo ...
