Sucker For Love Songs



Before I admit I'm a sucker for love songs Be assured I'm a masculine man My sensitive side's a big hit with ladies Which I nurture as much as I can By the way ladies talk, our numbers are few Probably why I'm so appealing Believe me at times sure wish it weren't true And had more control of my feelings I weep at sad movies and stuff on TV I'm embarrassed to say that it's so To hide it I try but the tears in my eyes Are a sure sign I don't have control Okay I've accepted this man that I am It's probably much better like this To be thought of as a cruel and unfeeling guy Would certainly not be my wish Before I admit I'm a sucker for love songs Be assured I'm a masculine man My sensitive side has turned out to be a blessing It defines the man that I am © Jack Ellison 2013 My tongue is firmly planted in my cheek!

    Jack....a man who is in touch with his sensitive side is a REAL man! :) Good on! So glad you highlighted this, my dear. Please have a look at line three..I think you have a typo there....the article needs to come before the adjective big! Hugs!!!

    Sensitivity is joined with imagination... Go Jack Go... Besides Cathie gets the romantic part... so I'm sure she likes it too... PS. On your book don't forget to mention Cathie... your muse.

    Jack, you will probably love Channel 17 -love channel- on Xirus XM satellite radio. That's my favorite channel and that is all they play -love songs. Glad to hear you love love songs :) I am at home recuperating. The surgery was successful. It's hurting a little bit but the pain is bearable. Love ya, Toquyen
