AS I EVER WAS

I hope that you are at that stage

Where you make one night stands

Because young women, at my age

That’s all a person plans

I’m one of Mother Nature’s older sons

You call upon becuz

I’m not as good as I was once

But I’m just as good once as I ever was

As I ever was


I don’t get frequently inspired

Like I did way back when

But I still get my engine fired

Up every now and then

And now I know how hot passion runs

If anybody does

I’m not as good as I once was

But I’m just as good once as I ever was

As I ever was


I’m a seasoned soldier

Who has risen through the ranks

I know how to hold your Fort

And cover both your flanks

I have raided beaches

Laid my share of sieges

See what tenderness you get

With sweet surrender to a vet

(Who ain’t retired yet)








Before you go out on a prowl

To cop a thrill real quick

Consider callin’ this old owl

Who’s wise at every trick

Before conducting any hunts

Try givin’ me a buzz

I’m not as good as I was once

But I’m just as good once as I ever was

As I ever was
