Y'ever wonder what make some women stay with some men?
Well wonder no more.
I find out why on Wednesday afternoon.
On Wednesday afternoon I had the radio on.
A song come on, a song by the Tradewinds.
The Tradewinds is a group from the West Indies. One o' them musicians, Dave Martin, is a Guyanese. He write plenty o' the songs and I think he sing most o' them.
Them songs poke fun at life in the West Indies, we food, we games, we conversations, we travel habits; some o' them a li'l naughty but you should see grandmas giggle as they listen.
This particular song was about sweet talking a woman. The song say that is not enough for a man to tell a woman that he love she. Women want to hear more.
One man give he wife everything...big house, car, lovely things in the home, everything...and still she leave he, she leave that kind, generous husband for she 'sweet-man'.
[A 'sweet man' is the 'other' man, the man she cheating with].
Listen, it don't matter how a man ugly, if he know how to sweet-talk a woman, ha, he gon look like movie star.
The song give plenty sweet-talkin' lessons. A man must say things like:
"I love you like how toothpaste love a brush, I love you like how toilet love a flush...I love you like how dogs love plenty trees, like how virus love the flu and drugstore love disease. Love you like a plumber love a leak, like watchman love a sleep, tomcat love a rat, police love arrest, brassier love a chest...
La la la
La la la..."
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha.
