THE LOWE DOWN: Straighten My Tie

bow-tie-intro_300x317     I love the way you straighten my tie

Kiss me on the cheek

     Tell me I’m “fly”

Raising my confidence, to conquer the world

     How glad I am, I made you my girl

You’ve grown to a woman of class

     Intelligent and fine

I love your body

     But I’m in love with your mind

I will always be faithful, hardworking, honest and true

     God blessed me, the day I met you

It’s for these reasons that success is certain

     I give you a standing ovation, at least three curtains

We will win together, if we both stay true

     It’s for these reasons and more, I truly love you

I have the holiday spirit in the holiday season

     We’re at Christ’s birth, the true reason

Lights, trees and vivid colors, gifts abound

     From fathers and mothers

Families reconnect around the world,

     Cousins, sisters and brothers

God’s steady grace has blessed us and many others

     Then comes the New Year’s parties and we’re oh so fly,

I grin from ear to ear, as you straighten my tie
