Flipside to the "Dime and a Quarter" single.

This was originally two songs we eventually merged into one. Ellen and I recorded our vocal tracks separately, so it was only after she came in did she find out that I threw in a proposal at the very end of the song. I didn't know what her reaction was gonna be, until I listened to the finished master, where it ends with Ellen saying "Yes".

-Ian Furelli


Exemplary Boyfriend
Come away with me
Exemplary Boyfriend
Open your eyes and see

Singing songwriting
Always on my mind
Rolling Yahtzee dice cup
Come out two of a kind

Right away I knew
We were for each other
Nothing could get in our way
Here we are on Queens
Plaza and 23rd street
I'm feeling good today.

Exemplary Boyfriend
Never gets in the way
Exemplary Boyfriend
Always does what I say (Sometimes!)

Go to a show now
Hear the overture
Lincoln Center
Geffen Theater

I'd rather listen to the
Beatles' Sgt. Pepper
But Rigoletto will do fine
Who's that on stage-it looks like
ABBA and the Captain
And I can't find the exit sign

Give me your hand and we'll go
Anywhere to your heart's desire
Don't put us in a place where we can't get home
I heard from Mama that dinner's
Ready at half past seven
Mashed potatoes and candy chrome

What do we do now?
Now the day is through
Happy ever after
Only me and you

Exemplary Girlfriend
Busy as a bee
Exemplary Girlfriend
Will you marry me?
