Treat Yourself

My woman was my Spouse
she was all about 'Our House'
 was 'Top Dog' in my domain,
  My woman had a Ball
 She will (flee) "flea on me"
  should I ever 'Stall'
It's not about our money
  She has it 'ALL'
It's not about any one-thing
on that One Hand, or
  if my shoe fit's
She didn't want me to fall
 my woman did know Love
would not except thee 'REST'
  She came to me halfway
as I would always do my 'BEST'
my Honey or myself could never
'Tip-Toe' through our loving home
we simply had to "Treat Ourselves"
" Once upon a time"

Perry Campanella

I first started writing songs, so I thought - at ten years-old ( so young ) I didn't let anyone see them and burned all for a great fire. I was later encouraged to write by a nun - a Catholic nun, whom did hear me singing while washing pots n pans, after which she provided me a slice of her pie and saidyou need to join our choir for the talent you have needs not pots n pans to drown-out your lovely voice; Shy then and now I did as she asked; So she would come -by to hear me sing. after which another slice of pie would be offered. We would sit together and write poetry and to this day I haven't washed a single pot or pan! Though I'll bet-ya I can "spot a poem to pen" more…
