the palm of your hand.

I may be an old-fashioned fool
They say that chivalry is dead;
it’s time for it to go.
Remember we’re all equal now,
all those women say it’s so.

They’re not the weaker sex at all
expecting us to bow.
Not that I have ever thought
we should do that anyhow.

They want to have what all men have;
they want to wear the pants.
They'd even open doors for you
if given half a chance.

Yes, times have changed and so have we;
it’s not like days of old,
when men would lift a hat to them -
at least, that's what I’m told.

And I was raised to show respect,
to offer them a hand.
Sometimes I'd offer up my seat;
a gentleman would stand.

I may be an old-fashioned fool,
but I say what the heck.
Just who am I to argue when
she wants to pay the check?
