Life of Chivalry

too many times i’ve heard chivalry died
i’ve been keeping it alive, so somebody’s lying
i don’t claim to be perfect, but i claim to be trying
let me interject; reviving a sport that’s dying


i’m washingtonian, born and raised
so i don’t get affected; only bored by rain
i keep an umbrella for her, and walk her pace
i’d be jealous if the rain ever kissed her face


holding the door is a common routine
i tend to her needs cus i’m part of her team
i don’t need to be in love to do all of these things
it comes natural for servants to cater to queens
chivalry's personified vicariously through me


not only a queen; 
alas my passenger princess
behold a beautiful being
i found her name off santa’s nice list
i give her my time instead of gifts;
appreciation is priceless


i wear my jacket until it’s her turn
i’m my own priority, but she comes first 
that’s a double entendre, i can confirm
when i see her goosebumps that’s my concern


at the end of the day… it’s night
i'm a hopeful romantic
i love leaving her notes i write
it’s a part of my antics


some consider me dated
that’s opinionated so i don’t mind it
chivalry’s underrated 
what i do is timeless
if it truly were dead
i surely revived it
