Thoughts on Songs with Swallows

Love it. I sincerely do. It's like being on elemantary school and the girl you've secretly have had a crush on, pashes you a note saying "I like you. Do you want to be my bf?" Then you look at your best pal sitting at the desk beside you, and he starts singing "She loves you yeah yeah yeah!!!!"....With one minor difference, kids nowdays do not pass notes, the exchange snapchat and crap.
