I tried so hard to elicit his interest,
I really went out of my way.
My dream you see was all so clear,
I wanted him to stay.
With painted my lips I flashed a smile,
but that never worked.
I think he thought my sexy smile,
was just a childish smirk.
I leaned in close with perfume on,
drifting under his nose.
He just opened the window
that I’d made sure was closed.
I spoke about the arts you see,
hoped he’d think me cultured.
But I made a grand faux par,
that left the boy in ruptures.
Well if I wanted a reaction,
I think I’d certainly got one back.
I tried so hard to elicit the interest,
of that wonderful boy named Jack.
