WITH THIS RING ...
With this ring I thee wed
And I promise:
Never to forget to make bed
Or make your breakfast at six o'clock sharp
Just the way you want it;
Fetch your slippers,
Find your pipe,
Close the window if you're in a draught;
Keep the tissues handy when you have a cold;
Keep your dinner hot and ready;
Listen to everything you say even if it bores me to tears.
Not to squeeze the toothpaste from the middle,
Spill ash on the carpet
Or chew gum when people call;
Read the newspaper before you do
Or open the mail first
Never to interrupt, argue, or disagre;
Never to look at another man,
Get a job that pays more than your,
Or wear high heels to look taller than you.
Never to get frustrated or angry or scream ...
What's that? The alarm bell?
Oh, thank God it was just a dream!
