ONLINE LOVER

I fell in love with her
before we ever met;
that’s the way things happen
on the internet.
When she posted pictures,
I was truly sold,
even if that photo
was all of ten years old.

My imagination
started to grow active;
with each passing daydream,
she seemed more attractive.
I knew I had to meet her,
I knew I had to go,
even if she lived
far off in Idaho.

I’ve found an online lover,
what a gem to discover!
Though she lives far away,
I’ll meet her some day!
I’ve found an online lover!

I bought a one-way ticket,
sold my single-wide,
just so I could meet her
and make her my bride.
She showed up at the airport,
her young’ns all in tow;
she must’ve had a dozen
lined up in a row.

My enthusiasm
soon began to lag;
the children were all monsters,
my true love was a hag!
She liked to chew tobacco,
spent my money non-stop,
and her jealous ex
was a large and angry cop.

I lost my online lover;
I judged her by her cover!
She lives far away
and I hope that she will stay!
I lost my online lover!

Yeah, another silly song from Steve.
