Remember when Cheap Trick serenaded Budokan with “I endeavor you to endeavor me/I desire you to desire me”? No, you don’t quite remember the lyrics sounding like that?
Why did Robin Zander and company sing “I want you to want me/I need you to need me” instead of the substitutions in the last paragraph? Heck, “want” and “need” are short, boring words. They wouldn’t impress anyone, would they?
