Reading Between The Lines



Do we always know what someone means Is it obvious or do we wonder Are we sometimes left just a little puzzled Or does it finally strike like thunder Evasive tactics can be quite intentional Not wanting to divulge private info Like telling someone of a sticky situation So we resort to mumbo jumbo Eventually when we can no longer stall We finally blurt out what we mean “Your dress is tucked up in your undies in back Showing the nicest assets I've seen” Should always try to read between the lines So we never get put on the spot Best is to just walk up to her, simply whisper Don't mind but we see what you've got!
