Our Bowling Date

Three of us went out to bowl
For this is done by many, the young and the old
We talked as we waited and stood in line
For the leagues to finish using up their time

We got our lane, now let the games begin
To see who will be the winner when we get to the end

My bowling started off like oh so whack
I couldn't even believe I was bowling like that
I gutter balled to the left and then to the right
And wondered if this was gonna happen all night

One person bowled strikes almost the whole night through
For this is something he so loves to do
He bowled them strikes like back to back to back
And he wasn't trying to give nobody no slack
The other one also bowled better than me
For I was indeed the worst of the three

I think they were bowling strikes so they could get another glance
At this nice figure bent over in them gray fitted pants
I know they were looking and imaging too
For that's in their nature and that's just what men do

I was being challenged all the way around
Cause I wasn't used to having the guard rails down
I knew I could knock down at least one pin
Or was I being distracted by these two fine men

I went to the bathroom just to get away
And one had to wonder if I went there to pray
Because when I got back, I was better than before
As I rolled that ball straight down the middle of the floor
I rolled some strikes and even some nines
Cause I wasn't trying to be left way behind

We had nachos and pizza as we sat down and ate
And enjoyed each other's company on our bowling date

Alright, it's crunch time, time to bring our A game
For we all wanted to shine with a high score by our name
Every step taken was done in stride
And each ball rolled, was rolled with pride
There were chants and cheers and high fives too
See motivating each other is something we do

We didn't care about the time cause we were having such fun
The next thing I knew, it was twenty after one

Bowling was cool, I must truly say
When it was all said and done, the winner was Ray
