My Son, Listen to My Words of Wisdom

My son, there are a few things you ought to know,
First off, don’t eat the yellow snow,
When a girl tells you she likes you as a friend,
She means, adios, goodbye, the end,
The tongue has the power of life and death,
Say something nice, or save your breath,
When you think you know something, speak out,
Listen and look wise, when in doubt,
Son, life has no easy answers on how to be smart,
Being always observant is quite an art,
If you look at the friends who surround you,
Your own character comes into view,
When people are angry, listen to what they say,
For what they believe is true will come your way,
Now for the things that can make you better,
Hold these truths close right to the letter,
If you hold anger inside and don’t turn it loose,
It won’t be long before you stew in your own juice,
In colloquial terms, you have to dig,
If you stir a stink, it only gets big,
If you’re knee high in clover you’re doing well,
You’ve hit pay dirt as time will tell,
If you’ve got it made in the shade,
You have no worries, your fortune is made,
The best things in life are not gold or shiny rings,
Love, respect, and honor, are what happiness brings,
Be a person of action, be a person of thought,
Keep out of trouble and do what you ought,
You are wise when you know others and what they say or do,
You are wiser yet, when you really understand you,
My son, I’ll tell you a secret, don’t ever get old,
It’s only for the tough, the simple, and those who are bold,
Now for the real things you asked me about,
The differences between sexes that you have doubts,
If you think you understand women you’re in danger,
The simple truth? Men are strange, women are stranger,
Know that women think differently than a man,
You’ll always be wrong if you don’t understand,
If you ever think you’re perfect, it’s time for a wife,
She’ll love you and correct you the rest of your life,
Men want women to stay the same always,
Women want men to be different every day,
Women can’t keep secrets, you should know that,
If you have a secret to keep, keep it under your hat,
Love builds bridges across unchartered lands,
Everyone is richer, no matter which side you stand,
Love can be magical when your heart it does claim,
Love also can be an illusion that you’ll never tame,
Love takes normal things and dims the light,
You won’t see faults and everything looks right,
A beautiful woman? If you wish to be wise too,
A beautiful woman is the one who loves you,
The best thing in life I hope you soon learn,
Is to love completely and be loved in return.
