Rookie (6/11/54 / Darwen England)

501


I have had my levis a very long time,
rips and tears, patches on patches.
25 years, of a stitch in time, saves nine,
so many different colors, nothing matches.

I love my Jeans so much,
if them, I could only touch.
There hanging behind a frame,
it's not quite the same.

I want to wear my Jeans,
I love my blue pants.
I think it's in my Genes,
or are they called trousers?

I mean, to put your legs,
into that soft velvet.
A little low riding on the hip,
bell bottoms as well as a zip.
Love-em.

    Love Levi's also, my favourite are 665's, much more generous on the hips. These one's are hard to find though. Enjoyed this write, Dave. (Report) Reply

    Nothing better than a nice soft comfy pair of jeans! (except maybe a nice soft comfy pair of jammies...or a nice soft comfy pair of socks if you have cold feet...)
    Hugs,

    LOVE my jeans - never trousers - and wear them until they are absolute rags! Hate having to buy the stiff new ones - love the 'velvet' of the old. You really hit the spot with this one! Scarlett (Report) Reply

    Bellbottoms? Takes me back to mine, in the 60s. Loved 'em, too.

    Love, Fran the Fan xx (Report) Reply
