A daddy long leg crawls into a cabaret
Often tripping on his tongue not knowing what to say
He was a line dancer and she was an extraordinary spinner
Saw her pic on the world wide web and knew she was a winner
His legs trembled as he thought of what to do next
Nervously, he pulled out his Iphone and sent her a quirky text
(Daddy long leg): U Lk g8! Nvr sn yr 8 legs here b4!
(Recluse Ruth): IL2 spin wu all noc on the danc flr!
(Daddy long leg):OMW! U Lk g8 n yr blk drs & slk stkngs
(Recluse Ruth): Jst dnc! Kp yr fly trppd or i’ll strt wlkn!!
*Translation for the technologically challenged*
(Daddy long leg): You look great! Never seen your eight legs here before!
(Recluse Ruse): I’d love to spin with you all night on the dance floor!
(Daddy long leg): Oh my word! You look great in your black dress and silk stockings!
(Recluse Ruth): Just dance! Keep your fly shut or I’ll start walking!
