Call that Boy a Rogue


A Heartbreaker

Makes for a fast baby-maker

Hit it and leave

But who was the first to deceive


It’s easy to call him the fool

When you know who took you to school

While you stood there trying to Vogue

Just go ahead, call that boy a rogue


It was the thing to be with him

A Dream-taker, out on a limb

Who tells you wrong from right

When it’s a fight to stay in the spotlight


He may have told you lies

But you’re your eyes were on the prize

Didn’t think you’d ever trip and fall

For all the measures and the jolts

Have to explain it to your folks

For you, it’s just another curtain call


A matter of the heart

Took off, but you had a false start

Gave until you had no more to give

So the time has come

To see a rocking chair and learn to sing and hum

Now you’ve got more than a reason to live
