    Not like them youngbloods,
    full of energy and power,
    but if you’ll give me a minute
    I can promise you an hour.

    I know that I’m getting on,
    can’t keep up with the kids;
    I may not get it on but once,
    but I go long like I always did.

    You can laugh if you want
    but let me give you a little hunch,
    If you want to ride the rollercoaster
    you had better pack some lunch.

    Don’t play me short on nothing,
    you might find that you are wrong,
    they say “Ra you sweat so easy”,
    and I say “but I be sweatin’ long.”

    When it’s all finally said and done,
    come take a little ride in my car,
    if I can’t cut the mustard anymore,
    I know I still can lick the jar.



    :heart:

    mannnn

    I don't even waste my time trying to explain this to the young ladies, but I'm glad you laid it out ....my more seasoned sistas are a bit mo accommodating, tho.

    Sho you right.

    Ain't dat da truff!

    What's up wid dat? I get more play from women who are just out of college or in their late 20's than most of the young brothers. what's up wid dat? I'd like to say that it is because I am extremely handsome, got plenty of money and got more juice than the electric company 'cept--I know dat ain't true--so what's up wit dat? I'll take a blue pill in a minute--Vaigra--Niagra--Mick Jagger--I don't care--what ever it takes--still that don't answer da question--what the hell do these young women want with a dude like me? Maybe you can shed a light on it. It is strange that you mentioned it because a friend I were talking about it the other day and we were wondering what the hell is going that so many young women are making themselves available to older guys? Enlighten me my brother.

    Ra

    :cool:
