I Love My Wife

I Love My Wife

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday, includes “wife”. I chose this song because I rather like the way Frank Sinatra sings. I don’t want to sound critical but sometimes he sounds as if he is talking rather than singing. I don’t mind that at all. In fact, it rather reminds me of the way my husband sings (on the rare occasion when does).

So when I heard Frank Sinatra speaking singing the words to “I love my wife” and sounding so much like my own husband I was charmed by this amusing song.

Lyrics by Cy Coleman and Michael Stewart

My thoughts may stray
My eyes may roam
The neighbor's grass may seem much greener
Than the grass right here at home

If pretty girls excite me
Well, that's life
But just in case, you didn't know
I love my wife

My mind at times
May dwell on sex
If someone's rating dreams
Then most of mine I guess are double X

So dimpled knees delight me
Well, that's life
But just in case, you hadn't heard
I love my wife

Like bait that wriggles
And it makes catfish bite
A lady jiggles
And my eyes gotta light
Upon so sweet a sight

And if I shake
Break out in spots
Don't fret, it's not swine fever dear
Your swine has merely got the hots

If rosy lips invite me
Well, that's life
But just in case, you couldn't guess
I love my wife

My mind at times
May dwell on sex
If someone's rating dreams
Then most of mine I guess are double X

If rosy lips invite me
Well, that's life
But just in case, you couldn't guess
Or hadn't heard
Or didn't know
I love my wife
I love my wife
I love my wife

mmm
I love my wife
