i was chatting on gay.com, someone tells me he'd love to rub me in the shower. he was "55," he said. "it's not often i find a guy in these chat rooms i'd be interested in," he continued - as "pray for the love" of this original song hit me as "praise for the young" in about a second. completely unrelated...yet semi-related, i was watching chuck tonight and someone said "chuck is in charge" - so i exclaimed, "charles in charge". yes, like the tv show of decades gone past.

i closed gay.com because i am too old to be looking to older men to be my daddy, but this song is not about me being old. it's about an old person being old. hey, 36 may be old...but it doesn't matter how old i look, because i feel 18. oops...i meant to say that it doesn't matter how old i feel, because i look 18. ha. and i wouldn't trade my age-inappropriate looks for an age-appropriate state-of-mind. no matter how naive i can be. :p

praise for the young, the tall and in-shape
the years passing by aren't getting me laid
i'm left with all these feelings of lust from younger days
when a young man is hung, i've fallen from straight

every little mister dating not his pa
gets a little taste of youth...dads get them taught
i'm no fine guy - i'm bald, i'm not cute
yet i'll share maturity, unfog your youth
i've been through every season - tried straight on, seemed to fit
no son made me guilty 'bout the son i had not been
there's no one to blame, gay thing, once you envy
cuz people go gay once they don't that much live up to dreams, yeah!

praise for the young, the tall and in-shape
the years passing by aren't getting me laid
i'm left with all these feelings of lust from younger days
but my youngness is done - i'm awful...ly aged

i'm a little disappointed, i've not been the man for me
i feel a little sorry, baby, i'll freak you for relief
so old next to you, darling, i know what you can't see
live and learn with every day, but better when a man's there
ooh, man-esteem is getting to you, it's plagued the all of me
a cross to bear, self-love's rude to hound the thoughts of teens' self-views

praise for the young man, tall and in-shape
the queers pass me by - not getting no lays
i'm left with all these feelings of hurt from younger days
when a young man is hung - i'm fallen from straight
