For Tory

Sweet lady who is in the lone star state
Feeling that the world has let her down
Who really should be treated as a great
And carried high by leaders of the town

You make me feel that I’m a special man
Who can change your mood in just a line
Making sure you smile is in my plan
I think that you should always feel just fine

So when you are not feeling at your best
I like to try to give you cause to smile
And as for what I think of all the rest
I’ll tell you you should stuff them for a while

The thing I think you really ought to do
Is spend a lot more time on being you
