The following is a Vocal + Assist Facebook Group writing challenge.



You're so hot

You've got my blood pressure on the spot

You're so cute

You've got it rising through the roof

Blood pressure, blood pressure I'm so anxious for you

Blood pressure, blood pressure you got me jumping for you

You're a natural beauty and a real cute cutie

You've got my subacute rising to the top

Top, top, top

Blood pressure, blood pressure it's going through the roof, roof, roof

Blood pressure, blood pressure oh baby you're so cute, cute, cute , cute

Blood pressure, blood pressure don't ever let it stop, stop, stop , stop

Blood Pressure, blood pressure I think I'm going to pop, pop, pop

Beautiful, Beautiful

Beautiful, Beautiful

This feeling is good

But the blood pressure is awful

Temperature's rising, temperature's rising, temperature's rising


195 over 113

call 911 cuz I'm going to scream

Scream, scream, scream

Blood pressure, blood pressure

Blood pressure!

About the Creator

Rick Henry

Writing is a distraction for me. It takes me to places unknown that fulfill my need for intellectual stimulus, emotional release, and a soothing of the breaks and bruises of the day.
