There is a horrible grammatical mistake in the last line where Monro sings "To try and paint a portrait of my love" instead of "To try to paint a portrait of my love." This error is extremely common in both spoken and written English; it appears in numerous songs including John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High
" and the Flanders & Swann classic "The Gasman Cometh
," where it is just about forgivable, but here, as Monro's voice rises to a crescendo, it is particularly galling, and is the most memorable thing about this otherwise forgettable song. It is surprising that nobody seems to have picked up on it, or if they did, that Monro never re-recorded it.
