1965-1989

Over a period of time
The music these musicians make seem to confuse my mind
1965 the yardbirds told me “for your love I'd bring you diamond rings and things right to your door.”
I mean as a woman what more could I ask for?
But then the very next year
1966 Mick Jagger said I was under his thumb
I swear that man acted as if I were dumb
1967 the who told me they got some pictures of lily that helped them sleep at night
While women named lily were fighting for their rights
1968 I was told by Elvis himself to cut the conversation cause he wanted a little more action
I mean we women are the greatest attraction
But, in 1969 led zeppelin said babe I'm gonna leave you
And what’s a young woman supposed to do?
1970 Eric Clapton said we were going to stimulate some action
I swear all men think about is satisfaction
1971 Jim Morrison asked if you loved her madly
But, I heard no answer, must have not wanted me that badly
1972 Neil Young said he a man needed a maid
Some men get this notion women are meant to be their slaves…
1973 Alice Cooper said no more Mr. nice guy
But, what I’m confused about was… when was he ever nice to me?
1974 Lynyrd Skynyrd said if I didn’t ask questions I wouldn’t get lies…
What exactly was he trying to imply
In 1975 kiss said that they had some kind of woman whose hips they touched and she said she would let them
I wonder where exactly he found this woman
For a few years I didn’t hear too much to please my ears
1979 babe I’m leaving… this is what the Styx said
Weird because I didn’t know those guys existed
1980 Bruce Springsteen shouted “Hey little girlie in the blue jeans so tight”
I wouldn’t turn around because if I did I would have to put up a fight
Love at first feel…
Well I guess in 1981 acdc thought this was real
Van Halen spoke the truth in 1982
Said pretty woman was the kind they would like to meet
I guess in 1983 the police saw that the pretty woman had a ring
1985 Duran Duran said the fatal kiss is all we need
Then in 1986 the beastie boys said girls were for the laundry
And for their bed
1987 Axl rose said he had some type of use for me…
But the words he used were so degrading
1989 Aerosmith claimed Janie had gun
You know today the music is the same
To bad Janie didn't shoot everyone…

Hi, Victoria - I'm new to your work, Gina sent me. Like you, I want constructive comments that help me be better. So, here goes = what a blast...funny tho', it was a trip through my children's music. I'm older. The only things I saw wrong were 1) there were some sentences that did not follow through the thought from beginning to end of sentence, and 2) there were some groups that I wondered if they shouldn't be capatilized like Who and Kiss. I don't know. Then I have one other question - was Jim Morrison a she or is this a typo. On to read more now.
