Life Above The Mat- France


Life at the Launderette
With a name like the Sultry Suds
It can be interesting,
Occasionally, enough.

I used to live above the Launderette
It’s where I met my boyfriend, Jim Bob
But I live with him now.
We got married there. 

It’s where I meet all my friends there
He’s my best friend you know.
Then fell in love with him there too.

Living life above the Laundromat. 
It’s a place where we can share stories
And do more than just a load at time.

It’s a pub and suds,
Come in if you like to pop in,
To the Launderette for a wash and a buzz.

It’s close to where Jim Bob lives and works. On his days off from his daily job; he drinks and serves.
But mostly, helps serve the drink and malt ales,
And helps for what other ails you might have.

So one day Jim Bob ask me if I wanted to go take a holiday. “Let’s go to France,” he said. I’m half French…
Did you know?

And I say, “What do you think I am….Google Translate or something? Why, I don’t speak a bit of French,” I said.

“I’m not bilingual or nothing like that if you know what I mean.”

My accents are Texan and my grammar activity is limited and my French is lacking any ability to read or write it.

Jim bob said, “you don’t have to speak French to visit there. It’s not like learning baking so relax about that. You can play like your my French maid instead if you want.”

So I said, “what do you think I am… A sex slave or something? I said I would go to France with him as long as I don’t have to do anything weird like eating under the table while you have brandy and a smoke.

Besides for a chance to go France… Is there any better time than today? Maybe I can play like your French maid, I guess I don’t mind dressing up a little bit, I said.

Jim Bob said, “Brilliant! It’s good for us to take time to sit down, kick back, you know and sip some wine.”

So I said, Let’s go to France and thought maybe Jim Bob could show me which part of him is French like he’s always talking about like that…if you know what I mean.

And so Jim Bob just laughed, then we both laughed together until we both cried.

I kinda got excited you know. And so excited that I went down, on my knees and he showed me the French way…

Well, you know the rest if you know
What I mean.
How about it, it’s the first time I had seen a half Frenchman.
I’d ever seen anything like that.

I never went down to France like that before. And that’s all Im going to day about that.
So life goes on; Life above the Launderette,

It ain’t so bad, because I love Jim Bob,

And he loves me and it feels good too.

To have someone like him who is half French and something like that; “Oui!”

Somebody to love is ooh la la… If you know what I mean.
