Undervaluing the Babe.

I never understood that old pop ballad cliché which promotes the view that no matter how many distressing things life throws at you, everything will be OK ‘as long as I got you, babe.’

Never understood it at all. If life is throwing distressing things at you, you’re still going to be distressed whether ‘you got her, babe’ or not. What difference does having the babe make?

I used to think that the whole silly idea was some typically disingenuous invention of those who write soppy love songs, but now I suspect I never learned the togetherness thing. I could never stand Mickey Mouse even as a kid.
