It's not like I don't get out
I've been everywhere
Nodding my head 'in da club'
'The Lion King;
..and the theatre
Yeah you heard me!
I brush my teeth everyday
Just before I pray
..and yeah I get my nails did too
What about you?
My two favourite women remind to maintain standards
.so we try
And yet the good girls still prove to be elusive.
I'm a thinker
.so I like a challenge
A woman's woman
A man's woman
All feminine and yet
I want her to understand what I go through
Hold my hand when I'm crying
And remind me to keep trying
How about some sensitivity?
Like the good ol' days?
Before 'girl power' embraced us
And love was all about trust?
Before pre-nups were mandatory
And both parents told their grandchildren their love story
Seems those days are long gone
Maybe it's me?
Maybe it's me and this city?
Some say I have an aura about me
Like falling in love with me wouldn't be so crazy
But I keep meeting these girls
Wanting me to 'hit it' on the first day
Surprised I never know what to say
So inside I just pray
For the dirty thoughts
And try to remember all the things I was taught
To love, cherish and obey
And to actively listen to everything she says
Others say I'm 'too nice'
I've never heard such nonsense all my life
..she doesn't deserve a decent guy?
My only thoughts turn to the 'why?'
Lack of self - love?
But I am in no position to judge
So I let it ride
to the other side
The direct approach doesn't disappoint me
In fact, it intrigues me
.like all she cares about is my mandingo - ness
Straight up questions with no finesse
'girl where do you think mandingo - ness originated from?'
The truth is I epitomize the mandingo - ness when it's all done
Hanging well below my knees
Keeping her screaming 'yes Daddy please'
But she missed the whole point you see
Girlfriend STILL hasn't seen me
No indication that she cares about the individual
My poetry or my attempt at being so spiritual
Only concern is our next date
And how much she can't wait
..for me to 'hit it' again
As I look to the heavens
I ask for an end
How about a good girl who'll also be my friend?
How about a girl who will just SEE me?
Maybe one day
..grow to love ME?
How about some truth?
Real love with no proof?
One day spend five geez on a ring?
While her and I do our thing?
How about someone I could watch as she sleeps?
Holding her closer as she weeps
How about ?
How about a simple good girl?
How about that?
