2020 Schantell Wharton
This is lyric only. No demo yet. Open to collaboration or rewrite.  Open to music to if you want to collaborate. 
I wanted a fun song about relationships

V1
Im tired of waiting for you to grow up
Men over thirty should stop acting like kids
Youre out with your boys every night
And telling me how much you love me every day
I m trying hard to believe you
If I were one of your games maybe Id get some play

V2
Fridays we go to local football games
Saturday its the NCAA basketball
Sunday its the NFL on NBC
I thought different seasons would stop your games
I forgot about baseball, soccer and hockey
I wish I could aim at a goal
If I were one of your games maybe Id get some play

CH
If I could have one night
Go on a weekly date
Bring me some flowers
Take me out for a night on the town
Use your imagination
Im game for most anything
I just want to get some play
I just want to get some play

V3
If I put on a jersey
And painted my face
Could I get some time?
Share your love of the game
What is my position in your life?
I know the time to strike
Before that game on Sunday night
During halftime Ill have your attention
You ask me to get you a coke
I shack my head
God this must be some kind of joke
Can I get some time
Can I get some play?

CH
If I could have one night
Go on a weekly date
Bring me some flowers
Take me out for a night on the town
Use your imagination
Im game for most anything
I just want to get some play
I just want to get some play--2x fades out

I like it a lot @Redlady !!!
It has a very much grounded (feet to the ground) quality. And it's about real people.
Reading it again, I am convinced you'll catch someone to write equally uplifting music to these words. And I am very curious where it will take you both musically.

The consensus among my (female) friends is that most men will never grow up so this one will resonate among half the population. And for you, I look forward to that.
Kind regards, Gus

Hi LePlonger

Thank you for your kind comment.  I glad you liked the piece.  I am not strong with melodies except the one rolling around in my head.  I can sing this acappella putting music to it is for a good co-writer.  Thanks again for commenting.

Happy writing
Redlady

You should record that vocal and post it here... that should help launch it! 😎
