Book 1 Page 43

I could serenade you forever

 

I could serenade you forever,

but my guitar has broken strings.

 

I could write you a love poem,

but my pencil is broken too.

 

 

I could kneel at the bosom of your heart,

 if it wasnít for me arthritis.

 

I could dine you with expensive food and wine

but the super market shut ten minutes ago.

 

I could kiss you and love you forever

but sorry love, we havenít got time,

 

Cause the footy starts in just, five minutes time.
