the proposal

he stood alone in the darkness
just outside her door
he stood alone in the darkness
would he be alone for evermore ?

tonight he'd pop the question,
tonight he would propose
tonight he'd ask her to marry
this woman, his gentle, tiny rose

he took the ring from his pocket,
and knelt upon one knee
he would propose right there, 
for all the world to see.

frightened, he rang the doorbell
the world was quiet as a mouse
slowly the door opened,
Aw crap ! its the wrong bloody house !
