Checking out chics

Me sweetheart gave me a shirt
with lettering
“how to pick up chics”
I dressed to kill and put on a wig
wore a stylish hat ,I looked like Fabrio
this was better than the dating page
no calling and no waiting 
I wore me shirt uptown
surely I would get me a pretty one
I stood by the deli
where the young ones mingle
I dropped me hanky as instructed
oh boy, let’s  see who picks it up
one came over and handed it back
“ you may need this if you sneeze’
well that was only just one subtle try

another one came along and who scooped it up
‘oh sir, you  dropped your bib’
‘you may need this if you burp’
two down, I hope there’ll  be more!
an older lady  came up to me
and said   “if you want  to get one
you have to be young”
“look at me” she said  “I’m not young”
but I would certainly like to know you”
“I too am looking for someone”
“one that will be kind to his  honey”
“when you are done at this deli
I will follow you out”
but may I have a tissue before I sneeze’?
she did sneeze and her hat and wig fell off
she was me sweetheart looking for a rooster!
