|I was putt-putting along in my mind garden
when a signboard thought introduced a major problem.
It announced very clearly to me with bright shining letters
I'd said something earlier that really did upset her.
What could I do to make this problem go away?
How could I right what I had said to her today?
Did what I say really need to be corrected
or am I overthinking cause my mind has been infected?
If there is a disease called love I hope there is a cure
My married friend said, " There isn't! Especially when it's pure!"
He told me it was natural for me to act the fool.
I then asked him if what I'd said was really that uncool.
I'm sure it wasn't, he said. But just to make sure
tell me what you told her and maybe I can cure
the confusion you are feeling for the very first time.
tell me what you said to her then we'll both feel fine.
Now I understand less than I did before.
All I did was offer to pay her more
money than she made at the profession she was in
It was time for us to marry, she'd become my best friend.
I told her I had loved her from the moment that we met.
At Moonlight Ranch, a perfect sunset.
My friend started laughing this made my cheeks burn red
He assured me he was only laughing at what I'd just said.
If you've ever been to Moonlight Ranch where love is bought and sold
It is far easier to understand when you're not seventeen years old.
