Be my Homer
I wanna be your Marge.
If I'm your Norfolk Broads
Will you be my barge?
Let's please be Tom and Barbara,
I will show you The Good Life.
Even though we're not yet married
I would love to be your wife.
I've the passion Lily Munster
has for her dear Herman.
I would love you if you were ginger,
I would love you if you were German.
Like Mr and Mrs Huxtable,
We'd smooch even when we're wrinkly.
I'll even consider ironing your shirts,
But I hope you like them crinkly.
Like Mr and Mrs Incredible
I'm flexible and you're tough.
But if you promise to be my true love
That will always be enough.
Like Bonny and that Clyde guy
without all the dying.
Like Gwyneth and that Coldplay man
without all the crying.
My partner in crime, the love of my life,
My muse, my joy, my fun.
Please be my one and only,
Cos you've always been 'The One'.
