Song of the Day #3,053: ‘Mr. Almost’ – Meghan Trainor

meghan_trainor_titleMeghan Trainor is an appropriate artist to help us recover from the painful election hangover. We can all use a little bubble gum right now, and Trainor is human Hubba Bubba.

Trainor’s throwback pop sound is as refreshing as her cheeky advocacy for issues tied to body image and female empowerment. There’s no guilt in this pleasure.

I enjoy Trainor’s debut album Title quite a bit but I somehow missed that she released a follow-up earlier this year. Might have to check that out.

[Verse 1: Meghan Trainor]
Tryna force a puzzle piece
Not a perfect fit for me
But they told me give it time
Maybe Cupid missed my chest
Cause I keep looking left
And you ain’t Mr. Right

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re so sweet when we’re kissing
But there’s something I’m missing
Baby there’s no chemistry
Yeah, we look good on paper
You can call me a hater
But let’s talk honestly

[Chorus]
Hey, no you ain’t the perfect match for me
You were so close, my Mr. Almost
I hope I didn’t come off as a tease
You were so close, my Mr. Almost

[Verse 2: Meghan Trainor]
All my girls say lock him down
Guys like him don’t come around
Go and pick your wedding rings (Say what?)
Yeah, my mom thinks you’re legit
But I’m way too young for this
So I’ma tell you what I think

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re so sweet when we’re kissing
But there’s something I’m missing
Baby there’s no chemistry
Yeah, we look good on paper
You can call me a hater
But let’s talk honestly

[Chorus]
Hey, no you ain’t the perfect match for me
You were so close, my Mr. Almost
I hope I didn’t come off as a tease
You were so close, my Mr. Almost

[Post-Chorus]
I know that this could be alarming
But you can’t go and call me boo
I’m looking for my Prince Charming
So close, my Mr. Almost
No you ain’t the perfect match for me
You were so close, my Mr. Almost

[Verse 3: Shy Carter]
Mr. Almost a billionaire
Mr. Almost yours ’till you almost caught feelings there (Where?)
Right there at the blue bird
When we were singing them songs we wrote
This is what you said and I quote
“I love you baby baby so much, you the one
Ain’t nobody better than you up under the sun”
This the part where I run
This the part where I dip
But I still love them hips

[Chorus]
Hey, no you ain’t the perfect match for me
You were so close, my Mr. Almost
I hope I didn’t come off as a tease
You were so close, my Mr. Almost

[Post-Chorus]
I know that this could be alarming
But you can’t go and call me boo
I’m looking for my Prince Charming
So close, my Mr. Almost
No you ain’t the perfect match for me
You were so close, my Mr. Almost

    We’re big fans of Trainor in this family. The new album has some great stuff on it, though most of the best songs became hits so you probably have heard them already.
