    Five hours a night
    Dancing for pay
    After six hours of school
    During the day
    She had to dance
    To make ends meet
    Two kids to feed
    Her life was not sweet
    So she danced

    Offers came nightly
    From men with folded cash
    She could have been"kept"
    She had so little
    And for her body
    She could have so much more
    No...not this way
    She was not a whore
    So she danced

    Five years passed
    She earned her degree
    Her children so proud
    Walking across the stage
    Degree in hand
    She thought of her bright future
    She danced

    This is so true, and sometimes we as men discredit our women and ourselves when we ignorantly assume otherwise.
