I Can Only Like You a Lot

Words and Music by Matthew P. Hanley (BMI)


“I Can Only Like You a Lot” is a groovy song about not settling for friendship. The singer is describing to a certain someone how his feelings are true, by comparing to a number of other self-evident truths such as “if asked to name a tall mammal, gonna go with giraffe.” The chorus includes “every nose has two nostrils, each eye gets a dot. Can’t like you a little….”

“I Can Only Like You a Lot” is Track 9 on the Starring MH album “Whenever Next Time Is.”
