You can’t write no rap.

You be justa sap.

Old man take a nap.

Let me get the cap.

And you can dig on some clap.

No fool not like Cumberland Gap.

Goes more like back slap.

So get ready to unstrap.

To turn the cap.

In a snap.

Pap.

The One

You will always be the one.

Number one in my book.

My book of love.

You got lucky.

Consider me the blessed one.

I didn’t know love.

You will always be the one.

Number one in my book.

My book of love.

So, let me play the Whitley version

And remember that New Year’s Eve kiss.

The dance.

You will always be the one.

Number one in my book.

My book of how not to love.

Jealous

She was jealous.  Jealous of my Angels.

So, one day she stole them.

Eventually I found out.

I told her to just keep them.

I’d find more.

She was just jealous.  Jealous of my Angels.

Just jealousy.  Simple as that.

I told her to keep them.

I’ll get new Angels.

So, she did.

She was just jealous.  Jealous of my Angels.

But she never talked to them.

So, they left.

And returned to me.

She was just jealous.  Now she’s not jealous.

But lessons remained unlearned.

She talks to Devils.  But not to me.

A Yellow Rose

A yellow rose for you, she said. 

So, we are just friends? 

Till the end. 

But what if I wanted more? 

Then you will need to wait. 

I’m waiting, still waiting… 

For the red rose… 

For the love prose. 

Would you like to go on a date? 

I would but you will need to wait. 

For me, I’m not ready. 

I’m ready for the both of us. 

Just take a chance on me. 

I’m waiting, still waiting… 

For the Chance. 

For the love pose. 

I’ve been hurt before. 

I’d never hurt you. 

That’s what they all say… 

Trust… 

It’s necessary. 

I’m waiting, still waiting… 

For the Trust… 

For the must… 

For the chance… 

For love……..
