Rose-Tinted Spectacles


Rose-tinted glasses will save your day
And drive your bitter blues away;
As you wander in this drab, grey city
Each girl you see will be oh-so-pretty!

You'll want to hold each in your arms
As you're overcome by their sexy charms,
No more cold-shoulders, no more tears,
Rose-tinted specs and a couple of beers

Will make you realise that you're the best
And so will satisfy your lust.
Doctor, doctor, prescribe these specs
And let us rediscover sex! !

I used to frown at an ugly girl
But now she puts my heart in a whirl,
Her looks don't matter anymore,
Not once we've closed the bedroom door!

I thank the Lord for these new glsses
My friends are a bunch of silly asses
They think that I have gone quite mad,
But a thousand lovers - that can't be bad! !

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
