Pick up lines

 
She was singing that
doo wah diddy diddy ditty,
and
looking so very
pretty.
 
She said,
Manfred Mann,
which excited me
because I knew it was
recorded by
The Exciters
way back in the sixties
which put her
about my age.
 
So I was going to have coffee
at my place,
come on over too,
I said,
which was another reference to
a different song
she came along
anyway.
 
The games people play
where
everything I do
reminds me
of you and a tune,
I once knew.
