Old Fashioned Man

from by Ange Takats



Lately I have noticed that love has lost all of its class
All these ‘booty calls’ and speed dating scores
Makes for love that never lasts

What became of that old fashioned man?
Who was happy to hold your hand
Who asked permission to kiss your cheek
And how the thrill of it would make your knees weak

Lately I’ve noticed that love has lost all its charm
What happened to town hall dances and slow romances
Down the boulevard arm in arm?

I’m just looking for a man with an old fashioned passion for me
