FDP Forum / Tin Pan Alley - Songwriting / Lyrics to "An Eye for a Well-turned Ankle"

Wrote this lyrics (or poem) after hearing the term used by Dan Rather while he was interviewing Charlie Daniels. They were discussing the temptations on the road and Dan mentioned that some men have "an eye for a well-turned ankle." I immediately thought this would be a great blues song and wrote these lyrics or this "poem" whichever it may be.

It is based on a man who's lust is so strong that he meets and falls in love with a woman (who happens to be a gold digger) at his wife's funeral.

The moral of the story is in the last verse where it states" "So if you got an eye for a well-turned ankle, better listen to what I’ve said, got an eye for a well-turned ankle, best to check her heart instead."

Anyway, would like any recommendations for changes and if anyone is gifted, I would really like to hear some music for it. I don't see a way to attach a Word document, so here is the whole thing:

AN EYE FOR A WELL-TURNED ANKLE

Got an eye for a well-turned ankle, I can almost see it now. Got an eye for a well-tuned ankle, gotta have it, gonna get it some how.

He met her at his late wife’s funeral, she was grieving out of control, and without hesitation he offered her console.

Got his hands on a well-turned ankle and things are starting to roll, got him under her spell now and under control.

Got an eye for a well-turned ankle, I can almost see it now. Got an eye for a well-tuned ankle, gotta have it, gonna get it some how.

He soon ran out of what she wanted, his eyes couldn’t see it coming down, blinded by the well-turned ankle, his heart was right but his eyes were closing now.

Heart is closer to the well-turned ankle, than the eyes are so it’s said, had an eye for a well-turned ankle, now his heart filled with regret.

Got an eye for a well-turned ankle, I can almost see it now. Got an eye for a well-tuned ankle, gotta have it, gonna get it some how.

She met him at her late eye’s funeral, not knowing what he was in for, she wasn’t grieving, cuz she was grooving with who knows how many more.

So if you got an eye for a well-turned ankle, better listen to what I’ve said, got an eye for a well-turned ankle, best to check her heart instead.

Got an eye for a well-turned ankle, I can almost see it now. Got an eye for a well-tuned ankle, gotta have it, gonna get it some how. END
