I Dream of Leela by BumbleBeeTheta
Part Three- Fortune Cookie Future
And my girlfriend likes U.L. and D.H.C.
And shes so smart and independent; I dont think she needs me
Quite half as much as I know I need her.
I wonder why theres not another guy that shed prefer
Yeah, my girlfriend takes collect calls from the road
And it doesnt seem to matter that Im lacking in the bulge.
She laughs at my dumb jokes when no one else does.
She brings me Mexican food from Sombreros just because.
And when I feel like giving up,
Like my world is falling down,
I show up at 3am
Shes still up watching Vacation and I
See her pretty face
It takes me away to a better place and
I know that everything,
Everythings gonna be fine.

Leela: Well, Im making your comment just now take its place.
Fry: But girls like corny things, dont they?
Leela: Why else would I be going out with you?
Fry: I see your point. But is that why you love me?
Leela: (smiling) Dont push it.
Fry: So what do you want to do tonight?
Leela: I dunno. But lets not relive last night. I dont think I want to get yelled at again.
Fry: Yeah. P Read the rest of this entry »
