The Lyrics

Boring and Mild

Get your mores running.
Net-post in a shy way.
Don't be adventurous—
Safe's the only way to play.

No snarling; just make it pablum.
Shame! if you mention love's embrace.
Fie! Roasting is just not done.
Sex posts have no place.

No jokes that are fright'ning.
Test your mettle under
Lyrics about skin,
And cast them all asunder.

No snarling; just make it pablum
Shame! if you mention love's embrace.
Fie! Roasting is just not done.
Sex posts have no place.

Write for a ten-year-old child—
Soporific, boring, mild.
You'll aspire so high—
That cleverness may die.
Boring and mild,
Borne for a child.

Thanks, Agrimorfee. Gotta hand it to Chucky G. He's denutting amiright, but he's provided an adult venue for those of us so inclined.
