The Lyrics

I bet you're wonderin how I knew,
all the things I knew of you,
you have brown eyes, you're five feet four,
you're divorced, as to kids, there's four,
I like big brown eyes, I must say,
when I read that yesterday,
don't ya know that I

heard it on a dateline,
you are lookin for a man so fine,
I heard you on a date line,
and I want so much to make you mine,
honey honey yeah

now about me, well I'm such a guy,
I have lots of love for you deep inside
findin you would be a fantasy,
cause love means that much to me
I'll be me, and you be yourself,
and we'll both be coming off the shelf,
don't you know that I

heard it on a dateline,
you are lookin for a man so fine,
I heard you on a date line,
and I want so much to make you mine,
honey honey yeah

people lie, on these lines you see,
you wear a twelve, but you say you're three
so I have felt so cheap and used
are you a cow, please be good to me
do you plan to let me know
how you were a size three just weeks before,
don'tcha know that I
heard it on a dateline,
you are lookin for a man so fine,
I heard you on a date line,
and I want so much to make you mine,
honey honey yeah

You didn't allow comments for it, but I liked "Slingin A Load" also

Great work. Real people don't exist on the internet. Real Imaginations do.

I thought this was going to be about the news show Dateline. Still pretty good though.
