Mission Unaccomplished


I'm Single, Let's Sizzle!

Dude:
Cut me loose.
I’m single.
Let’s sizzle

Babe:
No, brother.
I don’t mingle.
Nor am I dazzled

Dude:
There’s no other.
None the bother.
None the matter

Babe:
You sure?
I’m all muddled.
But that’s no riddle

Dude:
Ok then, no mumble.
This is no jungle.
I’m all befuddled

Babe:
Ok squared.
I’m not prepared.
This is no fad

Dude:
OK, don’t be mad.
I don’t feel bad.
I just tried!
