Say you love me, say you've had a few
I watch your lips & weigh each word
You whisper, I get close to you
My hearing's good, your speech is slurred

Words can make or break me
they can send or soar or sell me sir,
your sentence is: take me,
but I'm not no holy grail so you can

get down on one knee or two
talk until your face turns blue
be charming, sweet, please be funny
read me poems you wrote or you

can sing to wow and woo me,
you can write it in the sand,
but if you don't listen to me too
you're not my man.

talk, talk, talk, tell, tell, tell, tell
blah, blah, blah, blah, yaddy yadda
email, email, email, email.

A mail, E mail, I mail, O mail,
and sometimes I wonder why mail
when I can't get through, do you males
read your emails from your females?

Did you even see the words?
I stayed up late to give them wings.
Or did they fly right by, a blur?
Did you hear your cell phone ring?

It takes two to talk my friend
so hold your tongue and take my hand
and if you cut me off again
you're not my man.
