As the Miami Beach sun was hot,
you said that I was lying in your spot.
You got my attention from that very first look.
Just one short glance was all it took.
You have many good things my wife hasn’t got.
I have determined Layla really doesn’t have a lot.
What a hasty and impetuous move I would make.
I realize now that marriage was a mistake.
In your trap you have ensnared me.
What a complete young woman I see!
Somehow, someway, I should get myself free.
I must break these bonds of matrimony.
How did I ever get stuck in a situation like this?
With you, I can have a lifetime of marital bliss.
I intend to follow you out to Minneapolis.
I will take this opportunity and seal it with a kiss.
Based on the 1972 film “The Heartbreak Kid”
