Why? ?

"I loved the way she walked,
Adored the way she talked,
Couldn'twait to see her smiles,
To meet I'd travel miles.
Wasn't it that sexy swagger,
That stabbed me like a dagger? ?
Or were it then her eyes,
That mowed me down to size? ?

Where am I now? ?

I have her here with me,
How can I set her free?
For she's to cook my food,
To keep me in good mood!
To clothe and feed my child,
Keep him from goingwild! !
Look after father mother,
My sister and the brother! !
So what if they be rude?
Constantly hurl abuse?

Where am I now?

I dearly love my mum,
With brother I share rum.
Sis is such a dear,
But why did sister fear?
Hubby'd struck her only once,
Why all the song and dance? ! !

Where am I now? ?

Wife says she wants to study,
For that I'll ne'er be ready!
Why should she go to college?
Walk free and gain the knowledge? ?
She says she wants to earn,
What? ?
And this life of mine she burns? ?

Where am I now? ?

Am I not the male with strength and power?
Isn't she inferior growing weaker by the hour?
Wasn't she born to serve - live in chains?
To be treated as a slave not use her brains? ?
She shouldknow she'll have her time,
When her son returns -
Towing a younger slave on line! ! ! "
