Just pack up and head out the door,
I never expected anything less,
But please, before you leave,
For once pick your socks up off the floor.

For once pick your socks up off the floor..
And when you sleep try not to snore..
For cryin' out loud turn the TV down..
I need a beer.. I'm goin' to town..

I need a beer.. I'm goin' to town..
For the man I plan to spend the eve with.
I fancy White Russian myself.
I’ll shake my boo thang on the floor.
Letting all the guys drool and the ladies glare.
You know you want some, I can sense it.

You know you want some, I can sense it..
All hot and drippy waiting for you..
Your mouth is watering, you can't defense it..
Hot cinnamon rolls.. maybe take two...

Hot cinnamon rolls...maybe take two
Glazed, unglazed, pick for me
One for me, one for you
Let it cool some, best when hot

Let it cool some, best when hot,
Buttered, plain, pecans or not?
Sometimes the choice is difficult to make,
But I'll make a good one
With no mistakes.

With no mistakes.
We mortals would never learn.

With no mistakes.
Be better, no one would yearn.

With no mistakes.
There would be nothing to discern.

Without him, you know,
We'd know nought of the deep
With its mysteries and -

Oh wait, you said Clouseau,
And not Cousteau!

My apologies my dear,
As I shall slink off in shame,
Embarrassed at the confusion
Of two similar names.

Of two similar names,
things can be confusing.
Of two similar names,
things get blurred.
of two similar names,
one can't be distinguished from the other.
but why can they see they're two different things?

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

Unique though the same color both being black.
Birds of a feather, soaring high, with set wings.
A duck and a crow, one says “caw” the other “quack.”

A duck and a crow, one says “caw” the other “quack"
How bizarre would it be, if one day, suddenly
The duck said "caw" and the crow said "quack"?
It would be bizarre, oh yes indeed, but
not as bizarre as a crow drunk on mead!

Not as bizarre as a crow drunk on mead,
But strange in its own way, oh yes indeed,
Is the sport of cow tipping,
Or bovinary flipping,
Requiring plenty of chutzpah and speed.

Bovinary flipping, of that I am not sure.
Bovine, cow tipping would, yes indeed.
One would not try while being demure.

The faint of heart should not apply..
Unless you're ready for what you must endure..
It doesn't make sense to even try..

It doesn't make sense to even try
To educate people on the use of ellipsis,
I shall try, though nobody will listen,
One dot is a full stop, two is underkill,
Three is just the right amount of kill,
That is, for ellipsis,
Remember this and I won't kill you...

Before you head out to the street:

Wash you face,
Brush your hair,
Cean your teeth.

I'm picky, you think, to say this?
You're wrong about that, my sweet,

When you go to meet your fiancée's parents,
You should be tidy and neat.

For some that is quite a feat..
Sloppy is a favorite style..

you're wonderful, if a bit guile.
But nobody's perfect, it's all the same.
Even so, you'll still be my friend.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

Because we’re true, and that’s clear.
So suck it up, and hug me you fool.
Because I’m not going anywhere,
And neither are YOU!

if you want to get past this riddle's door.
told by the great spinx of lore.
Just let you mind think a moment more.

because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

I am assuming that you meant to say,
Let your mind think a moment more. Miss reb.


Just let your mind think a moment more.
Don't dwell in the past, live for the future.
Ask yourself, "what really happened before?"
Did it lacerate deeply requiring a suture?
Water under the bridge, can't even the score.
From this day on, be alive, chase the allure.

But let's not cry,
For tomorrow is another day,
On which we can say,
I love you.

I love you.
Can you hear me, don't you understand?
I love you.
Yet I seen you walk out that door.
I love you.
Three binding words that I truely mean.
I love you.
Something you will never say to me.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

But love isn't something proved in word..
Love is felt explicitly..
From a kiss only a moan is all that's heard..

There need not be nary a spoken word.
The feeling felt when kissed and hugged.
Is by far, much better than being mugged.

The art of giving laughter..
For when the lips are lightly tugged..
You got what you came after..
