The Lyrics

A love song. Original Song
The young guys will always stray to
The hot babes - I say nay...
Because I’ll only date you
If you are old and gray

No teenage cuties, I’ll avow,
Will take my heart, that’s that!
The women I’m lusting...
Kinda wrinkled and dusty
They are old and have ten cats

Don’t know what they do to me
If they are at least sixty
A hint of senility
Gertrude, Gretta, or Betty
And it just occured to me,
One more positivity:
No threat of fertility
Means no protection for me!

Don’t want to speak filthily
But that brand new hip that she -
Got, brings flexibility
That no teen compares for me
And her sexuality
There’s no other match for me
Nothing gets me more ready
When she wears Depends for me...

Her teeth are in a glass, near
Takes them out before bed
No hard candies for you, dear
Try -this- one out instead
Each night, goes to the Bingo Hall
Then off to bed at eight
[but] She can’t remember
My name, so I left her...
Now I’ll date Rose or Mae!

This was funny

This was surprisingly cute! A little strange about a young guy who wants to hook up with extreme cougars.... Maybe they're their own breed of cat something more old and crotchety like a Sphinx... But still very cute and fun!

GILF fetish does exists...wish I hadn't known about that though. Maybe in 35 years from now when I'm 64...

I'm at the stage where I also feel weird when I'm out with a GILF .. because it feels like I'm rocking the cradle

(Artistry) Delightful inversion of the OS that still is rather sweet in a weird way. 555 wrinkles!

Cute stuff. I was expecting you to dig deep in the rhyming dictionary for that insane "-illity" section. But I would guess your goal was executing the theme more than showing off...and that is fine.
