Please Don't

I always love having the beach around
So I can feel soft sand and hear its sound
Of rough waves as they will roll in
And boiling sun slowly baking my skin.

Will eventually end up with an elegant tan
And then become as handsome as I can;
Women want me to be in their presence;
I an now truly loved in every essence.

In their minds, it is me who they treasure;
My very presence is such a  great pleasure;
When walking down beach they say I'm cute
And should see my body in a bathing suit.

But my lovely wife said to get out of bed
So I could take her to church instead
And there for a while a prayer will say
God please don't let my hair turn gray.
