Dating

Michael R. Cole 1959 (Sacramento)



You try to be funny you try to be true,
but they’re not sure it’s really you.
You try to be honest not feed them a line,
but they’re not sure you’re one of a kind.
Now you don’t have a million not fond of wine,
Is this the end of the line.
You buy their dinner and a drink or two,
Are they through with you?
And as the date ends you hope it went right,
And get more then just a kiss goodnight
