    Go easy on the tell
    Concentrate more on the show
    Because if you come up short in any way
    Another woman will surely know

    Even the sexiest of men
    Can have an off day
    If you’ve kept your mouth shut
    There is no price to pay
    A reasonable woman will understand
    Especially if she likes you any ol’ way
    And certainly if you are her man

    But the man who brags about what he can do
    Better make sure he indeed comes through
    Cause a woman will tell
    That’s a fact
    If for no other reason than to pay a man back

    There are things to be done
    To deal with passion’s heat
    A woman is the first to tell you
    Talk is oh so cheap

    If you talk the talk
    You better walk the walk
    If you say that you will
    But don’t ring her bell
    Better find a place to hide
    Cause a woman is gonna tell

    I'm...

    laughing hysterically,
    because of how true
    this piece is, poet.
    A lot of women are
    more than happy
    to express any indifferences
    of the sort in this piece,
    you know?
    This is hot...
