    I was young
    I didn’t have much fun
    I walked the streets alone
    In mother’s evening clothes

    I didn’t know
    What I was looking for
    I had no clue
    ’til I found you

    You glanced at me
    Down by the urinal
    You took my hand
    And showed me what I am

    My world was never yours
    Your tastes far superior
    I went out as you came in
    So I just walked back in again

    Each gentleman
    Has some poison in his soul
    His manners and demeanour
    Keep his turmoil in control

    Whereas a young man like me
    Was susceptible to the poisoned seed
    I knew my fate was sealed
    The day you planted it in me

    Now 40 years
    Have come to pass since then
    40 years
    Of pain and shame and longing

    My kids are grown
    They have kids of their own
    At nights I sit alone
    And write my little sad stories

    Of dreams that were
    But never came to be
    Of sad and tired lives
    And a gentleman’s needs

    My world was never yours
    Your tastes far superior
    I went out as you came in
    So I just waltzed back in again

    Each gentleman
    Keeps some poison in his soul
    But my all year tan and starched white shirts
    Keep my turmoil in control

    But once in a while
    There are holes in my control
    So while my wife’s still sleeping
    I head back to the old urinal

    Each time God blinks His eyes
    He gambles with my soul
