As the male species we famous or rather infamous for the cheesy pick up lines we used at one time or another to win the affections of the fairer sex. I always took mine from songs
“I’m like a knight in shining armour from a long time ago, just in time I will save the day, take you to my castle far away.” Peter Cetera
In a galaxy far away, I once made a mistake, I quoted Depeche Mode’s lyrics “Somebody” to a “princess”, I sold it as my words.
She was no doubt initially impressed BUT when she found out I plagiarised the words of a song, she was not impressed at all! I’ll acknowledge my cheesy lines going forward. I still envy those guys out there who have poetic savvy!!!!
