I've described me very poorly
Better try again

Quiet, sincere, gentleman, well rounded and mature
Fond of music and the arts, loves the theater
Educated, sensitive, a trav'ler of the world
Wants to meet an eligible young girl

I've been writing, advertising
That's not really me

Lonely, understanding man, affectionate and true
Looking for girl to share his dreams and make them true
Humble, loving, sensitive, considerate and shy
Only sincere ladies need reply

Throw it all away
