he likes nice things

he likes nice things
it's not that he's stuffy
or snooty
or anything like that

he is tender hearted
and generous

just the same
he likes nice things

he saves
and shops
old shoes look brand new
impeccable care
a tad obsessive

he really really loves
well crafted
beautiful things

as a boy he had
good enough
"tough skins" to keep his knees safe
enough and good

as he grew
paperboy money
fish store job
window washer

his pockets jingled
so many interests
rock climbing
cool stuff
found this boy

now a modest man

who appreciates nice things
