In the oral tradition of the Spillers of Soup, my father told this to me and I have passed it down to my sons:

It is better to love a woman and be disappointed than to eat your soup alone.

I have to agree. I've done both a number of times.

I'm a slow learner and many things he said I didn't understand until years or decades later.

He told me: Never lay down with a woman that has more troubles than you.

I have done that too, and I learned why I shouldn'ta.

shoulda quit choo long time ago

I thought I was treatin' my baby square ...

Baby, I'm troo wit choo

I left her standin' in the corner ...
