Mr. Ole Right Hand

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 
I don’t care that you don’t want me I got better things to do There’s that laundry in the closet I might pay a bill or two And later in the evening I’ll plan something much more grand Tonight I’ve made myself a date With Mr. Ole Right Hand I don’t need to bring him flowers He’s got no use for charm He just sits there waiting calmly At the end of my right arm He’ll do just what I ask him As though he knows 

What I’ve got planned He’ll be so warm and tender That’s Mr. Ole Right Hand He doesn’t have your good looks He don’t have much to say But he won’t ever let me down He’d never walk away I don’t know what you’re doing or Where you might be tonight It won’t make too much difference I’ll get along all right Don’t worry that I’m out there searching for some one night stand

No, tonight I’ve got a special date With Mr. Ole Right Hand

He’s so responsive Tonight I know I’ll soon feel great With Mr. Ole Right Hand

I like where you were going with this. If you spent some time molding it and maybe adding a metaphor, it would be very humorous.

Thanks, but I'm not big on metaphor. Like savory spice, it is best used judiciously. I don't often find suitable opportunities.

It reminds me of Tom Waits in the best way. Thanks for sharing.

Hey, thanks to all. And to S4A, I actually have a real date tonight, so we'll see what happens.

Haha in that case we'll ask Mr. Ole Right Hand merely to mind his manners and have a good time! -Soulja4Alethia
