I had me a dream last night,
I sure wish it was true…
That we were in the heat of youth
And me in love with you.
Between us we were hot and strong
With no joint aches to bug…
Our honeymoon suite had a heart-shaped tub,
And a ceiling of a shag rug!
We paid too much for our first love nest,
For the price, it was half-closed…
Could have done far better in the Holiday Inn*
But it was what we chose.
From a distance the planning def’nitely flawed,
Yet we made out okay…
We made the best of what was there
And we still take life that way.
***Holiday Inn was a national chain of hotel/motels that may still exist somewhere!
