abuse, betrayal, innocence, relationship, sad love,

She dances to his tune
When she does his bidding, he’s over the moon
He acts so cool
Yet he plays her for a fool
This innocent girl has got the hots
But she is so naive he’s calling all the shots
She dangles like a puppet on a string
Can’t see that she’s just his plaything
He’s like so many other cheating lying guys
Using her because she’s not worldly wise
She needs to get wise
Get wise to his lies
He wears a disguise
You can’t see his eyes
Or does he have you hypnotised?
Wise up before he leaves you for another
Get wise so it won't come as a surprise.

humorous, silly, , sweet love,
This jester has been un-jester-like lately
Gushing with loving thoughts
What has happened to this happy old jester
Acting like a teenager with the hots!
My icky gooey soft side is showing
Try to keep it hidden from view
But it overtakes me once in a while
Not to blame, plead innocent, I do
I'm feeling a bit icky gooey right now
Trying hard to resist, it's true
But don't blame me if it pops up again
Trying hard, that's all I can do
Guess I'll just let the sweet love flow
Funnies will be left to brood
Just for while till it's out of my system
And I'm rid of this loving mood

humorous, love, marriage, romantic love,
King Edward The VIIIth, pitiable blighter, abdicated the throne.
He had the hots for an American divorcee - this the Brits would not condone!
He was King for a spell and the paramours continued their torrid romance.
They later wed, he was busted to Duke of Windsor and they settled in France.
Wallis Simpson was middle-class but knew how to climb the social rungs.
She was twice divorced which triggered a legion of wagging tongues.
They met at Lady Furness's digs and Wallie thought Eddie not all that sexy,
But they wed incurring upon The Archbishop of Canterbury a case of apoplexy!
