Words and music by David W Solomons, a bitter-sweet and somewhat camp comic song about personal ads, all invented for the purpose (tempting though it was to use real ones!) The recording is from the CD Songs of Solomons and was performed by Stephen Taylor (countertenor) and Jonathan Leonard (piano), who have given permission for use of their performance.

Will he be the one, will he write to me, will he like my style, will we get on? Lookin', just lookin' at the personal ads, can we find true love? Are they the people waiting only for us? waitin' for a letter, waitin' for a letter, lookin', lookin'.
Kindly lady, thirty eight, cuddly butch and lively, likes a laugh and country walks. Who will answer will it be the girl of my dreams? Will she be the one…(etc)
Leather wearing, fifty four, into whips and bondage: genuine answers only, please. Who will answer, will it be the whip of my dreams? Will he be the one…(etc)
Grey panther ninety two, into older women, cuddle to my Zimmerframe, Who will answer, will it be the crutch of my dreams? Will she be the one…(etc)
