Opposites

Written by: Jack Ellison



Opposites attract I've heard it said A saying from way back yonder What draws us together no one knows It sure makes all of us ponder Sweeter than chocolate candy you are I'm a mean and cranky old codger We even cheer for two different teams The Yankees and the LA Dodgers Don't know how we ever hooked up Compatibility is not our thing Somehow when all the chips are down Our two hearts in unison sing Our musical tastes are sure not the same Mine's more cultured by choice I listen to Bach and Ludwig Beethoven You listen to Vanilla Ice But through it all, the pros and cons We've kept our flame aglow Way down deep under the surface Seeds of our true love still grow © Jack Ellison 2013
