I saw this old man with this young girl the other night. I walked over to him and pulled him off to the side and said, "Pops, what are you trying to prove?" I said, "I've seen you out here very night with a different young girl wrapped around your arm." I said, "You can't keep this pace up, because these young girls, huh, oh! -- they'll ??? get ya down." He said, "Son, sit down here. Lemme tell ya something." He said, "All my life I've worked hard, and I've saved me a little money." He said, "But just about the time I got me a nest egg saved, I became a ???? man." He said, "I'm 72 going on 73 years old and don't have too many more years to live." He said, "I know that I should be ashamed of myself. But," he said, "young girls is my weakness. Oh yes, they are." He said, "So would you please leave this old gray-haired man alone. Mind your business. Let me and this young girl have us a little bit of fun." That's when I looked at him and I said, I said, "All right pops, you got it. But listen, ha ha ha, here's all you're doing..." "Oh yeah! Oh yes! Ah, you're just buying -- buyin' a book." That's what I said to him. I said, "Listen to this, here's all you're doing. (Buying a book for some young man) That's what you're doing, heh, to read. But don't do it. (Don't do it) Don't do it! (Don't do it). Oh, don't do it! (Don't do it) Send that young girl on home." Then there was this middle-aged woman whose name I dare not call -- simply because you out there listening might know who this woman is. But I can tell you this much: the woman lives right here in your town. I know you didn't know that, did you?

I saw this woman, with this young man, in the broad all ??? daytime, the other day. I said, "Miss lady, you oughta be ashamed of yourself, ridin' around with this young man all ?????ed up like this here." She said, "Son, ah son, you're dippin' in my business. But if you want to know why I fool with this young man, I'll tell ya." She said, "I was married to a man 40 years older than I was." Said, "For a long time I was true and faithful to that one man." She said, "Last year he died and willed me a whole lotta money. And I know that that young man sittin' in my car just wants me for my money." She said, "But if that's what it takes to keep the young, fine thing -- oh ho! -- he get every single dime. Because it ain't nothin' an old man can do for me, but show me which way a young ???? " Oh lord, oh! Oh! Here's what I said... I said, "You're just buying -- that's all you're doin' (buying a book). That's what I told her (buying a book). Listen Miss Lady, here's all you're doin': (buying a book for some young girl) you oughta quit it, huh, to read. (Don't do it)" I said, "That's your car driving home, giving up ???? all your money." I'm sorry I dipped in your business. I won't do it no more. Nooooo.
