From “The Darkest Part Of The Night” (1996)

by Bob Malone

My old lady really is an old lady
But she’s so well preserved
It’s taken me a long, long time to teach me everything she knows
But I’ve been so willing to learn
Now I don’t chase young girls no more
That’s no longer what I’m looking for
It took an older woman to make a man out of me…

I can’t lie when I look her in the eye
‘Cause she’s heard all the lines
And she won’t stand for no slack in the sack
I got to keep her satisfied
My momma’s had her cradle robbed and man, is she pissed
But it wasn’t just her caught unprepared for this
I’m not the way I used to be
It took an older woman to make a man out of me…

Now the young ones were fun, but since I found me a woman
They’re just a disappointing memory
They haven’t put in the time that puts a woman in her prime
It takes experience to bring a man to his knees
Now boys you ain’t been down and dirty
‘Till you’ve made it with a woman on the dark side of thirty
I was blind but now I see
It took an older woman to make a man out of me…
