I've been trying to hunt down a song for years now with no success, so I'm throwing it out to you, beloved flist. I heard it once on the radio at least 15 years ago, an acoustic guitar, folkie-type song sung by a woman. The only lines I can remember are


In order to avoid any embarrassment or shame, she never calls her lovers by their name.
She calls them, snookie, pookems, sweetie, darling.........



It was about a gal who had so many lovers, she was afraid she'd say the wrong name during sex, so she always used pet names instead.

What say you, peeps? Anyone know this song? *crosses fingers*

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] catssyclaws found it! Go here to watch.

So cool! I can see why I couldn't find it googling, as I remembered the crucial line a bit wrong. Mucho thanks!

lol I often do that with songs I only hear once and try to recall them after years. X_x Sometimes you're just so sure then when you finally find it you're like "HOW WAS I THAT OFF?!" XD I had those moments several times.

Because I thought the key word was lover, not sweetheart, it was not to be found. I tried googling the correct line and it came right up! Fuzzy logic can only go so far. :D

Ooh, Christine Lavin!!

This song is a favorite of my husband's.

She is awesome if you've never heard her.

I've never heard her except for this song way back when. So funny!

Finding a song that you've been looking for is the best :)

Thanks for bringing this up - awesome song, and I think it's a good idea, I'm terrible with names as well so I sometimes just call people generic things too.

Did you get a cake?

Nah. I don't like cake. I think my husband has forgotten, but that's cool. I don't want him to make a fuss. At my age, I'm not looking forward to birthdays. :p

haha I ask because I love sweets :) If you don't mind me asking, when did you start not really caring about birthdays? (Just wondering because I stopped caring about my birthdays when I was a teenager and just always wondered whether this was "normal")

I remember being bummed when I turned 20, that I was no longer a teen. Yeah, I've never been big on birthdays since I was a child, same as you.
