The Fire Of All Men Is One


We all agree or at least most of us, that at some point in life
Every man must want a wife
Though not everyman ends up with one
The fire and desire of all is one!
Some want a fair and elegant wife
Others want wives more than five
Some wish for a woman who can bare them children
While others require a lady with a sound brain
A lady who loves God is the right one' says the church boy
A lady who can bare me many sons, says the local tribesman, will give me joy

The fire and desire of all is one i say
For some say they desire a lady
Who can love them night and day
While some require one who can fast and pray
But all for all burn for one.

I say, says the drunkard, my woman should be the best in bed
Mine must be well educated, says a school boy, and sane in the head
I hunger for a well mannered and hardworking woman instead
The farmer's son says, one with a waist full of beads
But all for one desire burn

Men want a lady they can walk with on the road
And someone they can talk to when they're bored
They like especially ones whom in the night they can hold
While some wish for a woman who will bow to them like they were a god
Some insist on one who is wise and bold
Wives can be a whole lot bunch of trouble am told as some don't do as they're told
But then why do some men cling to theirs till they are grey and old?
Is it because they can't sleep alone when it's cold
Or because wives are more precious than gold.
I say it's the fire, that one desire
The fire and desire which is of all but for one that keeps them on hold.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
