Al Lehman and I were innocent kids.
But he was more worldly-wise than I.
So he provided the guidance
and I followed as a disciple.
We learned soon to get an eyeful
of girls, whose feminine charms riled us
to begin the adult business.
Hence our apprenticeship replacing kid-ness.

TO NOW REHEARSE:
Growing up, with help from a buddy,
so that our early life wouldn't be too muddy,
we also learned not to be a fuddy duddy
but take a manly stride toward maturity
and earn our livings for security.
