Lexi’s Creations 115 – For the Man in your Life

Our challenge at Lexi’s Creations this time is ‘for the man in your life’ and we are sponsored by Fairy Dust Crafts.

I don’t have a man in my life, boohoo, or actually HOORAY! Anyhow I made this comic card for my Sister to give to her husband who is a bit older than her! I hope he has a sense of humour still.

115 Lexi Man in Your Life

The papers were freebies from a magazine, and I thought the pink one looked a little like love letters. The image is from Inky Doodles and the sentiment, well I created that myself on my pc.

I was going to make a sentiment about the oldest ‘swinger’ in town, but since my youth that expression has taken on a whole other meaning! Do the Brits remember the song Oldest Swinger in Town by Fred Wedlock….. well that was going through my mind as I coloured this image!

When you score with a chick in a disco bar
take her home in your hairy little car
then you find you went to school with her ma and pa
You’re the oldest swinger in town,
and you wont look in a mirror in the light of day
swear you died it when your hair turns grey
when you zip up your wranglers and your belly's in the way
Your the oldest swinger in town.

Here you come and there you go
wide wheels, spots and a stereo
but the engine's clapped and the driver also
is the oldest swinger in town.

When your barber takes a little less time each week
the kids don't understand a word you speak
when you walk into a disco and they offer you a seat
You're the oldest swinger in town.
You prefer a pint of mild to bacardi and coke
the sounds are too loud and there's too much smoke
You'd like another dance but you're scared you'll have a stroke
You're the oldest swinger in town.

Here you come with your chest all bare
a little gold ingot and a lot of gold hair
like the Disco King meets Yogi Bear
You're the oldest swinger in town.

When your feelin as stiff as a skin heads boot
rub on Vick where you used to splash Brut
and the latest punk fashion is your weddin' suit
You're the oldest swinger in town.

When you have to go shopping for your sex appeal
Travolta shades and nine inch heels
they say a man is just as old as the woman he feels
You're the Oldest Swinger in Town.

Here you come with your lips closed tight
you never smile you know it wouldn't look right
'cos your dentures glow in ultra violet light
You're the oldest swinger in town
And you look so mean cos your pants are too tight
You're the Oldest swinger in Town
And it takes you all night to do what you used to do all night
You're the oldest swinger in town

And for those of you who never heard it before

here you go
