    I’m not into health food
    I’m a steak and potatoes man
    I’m not into tofu,
    just plain old raisin bran

    I’m not into business cards,
    although I work hard with a smile.
    I’m not in to designer clothes,
    I’d rather create my own style.
    I’m not so much into myself
    to keep my head up in the sky,
    I like me just the way I am,
    I’m just an old fashion guy

    Can’t keep up with expensive trends
    and I see no to reason to try.
    No change of habits or change of friends,
    I’m just an old fashioned guy

    I’m into commitments,
    promises don`t bother me.
    I’ll feel no resentments,
    I got no time for cheap vanity.
    I’m not into money,
    but I got my piece of the pie.
    Dollar bill ain’t everything
    to an old fashioned guy

    Don’t want any seasonal friends
    for company I have to buy.
    Don’t need your colored contacts lens,
    I’m just an old fashioned guy

    I’m into true loving,
    romantic ties don`t frighten me.
    I’m into soft moonlight,
    sweet music and slow melodies.
    I’m into long romance,
    with sparkling stars up in the sky.
    Simplicity means everything,
    to an old fashioned guy.

    Just the Simple Stuff

    What could be better than being real? That's all I have ever wanted and I suspect that is allmost people want. Thanks for stopping past.

    what I love about being

    "Old Fashioned" is.... it's timeless... it's always "in".

    Thank you, this is beautifully done; such a pure and clean picture of how sweet it is!

    This speaks to me of the epitome of "class"...

    Y'all 2 Sweet!

    Can you think of any other way than being yourself? I like me and I hope others do also, but I'm a pretty simple guy and I bet you all are very much the same--no times for games and drama--let's get on with living.

    Ra

    actually, being old- fashioned in this scribe has much youth-bearing.

    peace.
