THE TABLES ARE TURNED


It's sweet to be chased
To be what God made woman for
The smiles that have been faced
Because you, woman, will give more

To these men who love your rapture
It's the service that you bring
The passion of the laughter
Because one from two will sing

One man I've loved 16 years
Faithful to him a long time
Brought me joy with many tears
Back there when his soul was my rhyme

Then him I've loved a few years
Thought of him for two before that
Too, he's brought me joy and many tears
Wanting him so bad used to lay me out flat

Now, neither one of you claims my obsession
It mostly doesn't matter to me, the tables turned
Can write an eternity of deep confession
Give up on both of you, love me, the lesson's learned.
