A Young Mans Dream - Poem by Smoky Hoss
When I was barely a teen
I heard a rock-n-roll singer sing,
Something about a sweet and fast little thing -
Said she was the finest thing he'd ever seen
A real smooth movin' machine,
Prettier than a silver-dream -
Said she was oh so right
Both day and night,
And well worth a fight -
I listened close, ears wide open
Found myself longing and hoping,
My heart beat really stroking -
I was so young way back then
Couldn't truly comprehend
This wonder that really moves most men -
But ofcourse I grew
And became a young man too,
Learned my lessons, paid my dues -
Then came that incredible day
When desire fulfilled came my way...
Boys listen, for I am here to say:
No price is too high, no distance too far,
To find and to have that beautiful star -
No, I'm not talkin' 'bout a woman...
My first love, was ofcourse a car!
