Can you be sweet?
She will never know
For you have let the bad side show.
Your trite mistakes
And mindless remarks
Will eventually leave you
Alone in the dark
You have not realized
Not now or before
Eventually someone's going to slam the door
They're not going to take it
Or stand it anymore
Realize your mistakes
Now while you can
Unless you want to end up
A lonely old man
This she tells you--
Not as a joke or put down
But as a warning to you
For your final showdown.
