The Rules

If you want to meet the girl…
Don’t just stand there and gawk…
You have to learn to talk the talk…
Or you have to walk the walk…

If you dance to the music…
You have to pay the piper…
If you disrespect a farmer’s daughter…
He might sting you like a viper…

You had better ask his permission…
If you want to kiss his daughter…
The last time a boy came a’kissing…
They charged the daddy with manslaughter…

If you want to drink the milk…
You had better buy the cow…
That’s how it works in these parts, boy…
Get on one knee or get out now…

If you’re gonna do the crime…
Then you have to do the time…
What more is there to say…
You reached the end of this rhyme…
