"Son, that's a mighty fine girl you've got there. She reminds me of your momma… I swear I didn't love your momma well. I chased her heart away. Now listen son, if you want this girl to stay… Tell her you love her. Tell her you need her. Wrap her in your arms and hold her close, and tell her you aint never, ever gonna let her go…. that's how you keep a girl…"
"Loving a girl sometimes is hard. But she respects you when you care for her heart. You gotta love a woman well, or it chases her away. Now listen son, if you want this girl to stay… Buy her flowers, listen to her talk for hours, and keep your heart away from other girls--and don't forget, she's the best thing in the world. That's how you keep a girl."
"Be the best man that she knows, and someday when you have children of your own, they'll have a mom loved by their dad."
"So tell her you love her. Tell her that you need her. Wrap her in your arms and hold her close. Buy her flowers. Listen to her talk for hours. And keep your heart away from other girls. Show her kindness. When you're wrong, ask for forgiveness. And someday when you're old she's gonna be the only woman your heart has ever known… that's how you keep a girl."
