When a lovely womanís eyes
Seem to promise paradise.
You stop and think if you are wise
or you will earn the booby prize.
She will attempt to lead you on.
Pretend you are the only one.
You will discover itís a con.
When you wake up she is gone.
So have your watch and your bill fold.
You had been warned but paid no heed.
You swallowed all the lies she told.
And so you pandered to her greed.
That is a lesson you have learnt.
Play with fire and youíll get burnt
