Sweep Me Off My Feet Hey, you, I’m not bold or cool or masculine, Maybe you’re just waiting for the perfect Latin lover to walk in, I’m not him. Between my penis and my chin is Camembert and shame, I used to be elegantly thin, I’m sorry babe, we both missed that train, Oh, no, if I follow you all your girlfriends will know, then i’ll wind up with the other fools waiting, wasting his time following you ‘round, another lonely guy with longing in his eye, but you said your man was bringing you down.
Someone sweep me off my feet, i am not an angel, i’m barely a man, I’m lonely but I’m here, Baby, understand, Someone sweep me off my feet.
therock When I come back home to my farm in Virginia to recharge, I have to go to a public gym to train (I’m building a gym on my property) and try to get in and out as fast as possible without drawing a crowd.
While working out, I tell people no pictures I just want to train and a handshake will have to do. Then as I’m pulling out of the parking lot I see all these women briskly walking to my truck with eyes wide… I shift gears to drive off and see them in the rearview waving at me saying “come back”.. I start loudly cussing at myself “SUM BITCH” in the truck because I know what’s next..I can’t ever drive away when I see women or kids.
I back up. She starts crying and starts singing my favorite Taylor Swift song. I make a joke about the great moonshine we have in Virginia. We take selfies. They share really amazing thoughts with me about why they’re big fans and I drive away feeling like the luckiest SOB on the planet to meet such amazing fans. This kinda stuff will always be the best part of fame.
