Lookin' For a Lady

 Not at the moment ;)

I's looking for a lady, soft as eiderdown.

Just as hard as nails, with two feet on the ground.

Looking for a lady, pick me up when I'm down.

With a heart of gold, and fun to be around.

 

When I was a youngster I was wild and free.

And I had all the girls just a crawling on me.

Then came the time for me to settle down,

I looked all around there were none to be found.

 

I was looking for a lady, soft as eiderdown.

Just as hard as nails, with two feet on the ground.

Looking for a lady, pick me up when I'm down.

With a heart of gold, and fun to be around.

 

The day I quit looking, she snuck up on me.

In total disguise and so innocently.

Took me by the hand and like a kitten to the cream.

I wound up in love with the girl of my dreams.

 

I found myself a lady, soft as eiderdown.

Just as hard as nails, with two feet on the ground.

Yea I found myself a lady, pick me up when I'm down.

With a heart of gold, and fun to be around.

 

BRIDGE

 

Till death do we part, and girl its been fun,

Here's my last request, won't you see that its done.

Write on my tombstone my epitath.

And come let everybody come and share my last laugh.

 

I'm looking for an angel, soft as eiderdown.

Just as hard as nails, with two feet on a cloud.

Looking for an angel pick me up if I'm down.

With a heart of gold and fun to be around.
