' And Never The Twain Shall Meet
I can't believe you're wearing that!
Your favorite holey shirt,
Your kneeless jeans and sandals
And you've got the guts to flirt!
So much for first impressions,
You'd scare them all away....
No normal gal in her right mind
Would give the time of day
To someone so despicable -
You haven't got a clue,
I guess it's just that Mars mystique
That draws the girls to you!
It's a good thing we were programmed
To look beneath the skin,
Or humanity would not survive
The predicament we're in;
If women came from Venus
And all men came from Mars......
No wonder we bear children
While men race 'round in cars!
Perhaps the great 'all knowing'
Had no idea then
How different the wiring
'Tween females and the men;
And so we do the best we can
With the gender that we've got........
Venus stays cool and misty
While Mars flames red and hot!
And still we learn to co-exist,
Appreciate each other......
But who taught you to dress like that? ? ? ?
Certainly not your mother!
