Married - ME

Married?  ME!

were I not already taken
and out bringin’ home the bacon
I’d take another wife
to replace the one that’s fakin’

the Big “O” around the house
is when she sees a freakin’ mouse
but wrestling for the quilt
beats wrestling with the guilt

of the birthday’s that went slippin’
while I was out there sippin’
and she was home alone
sitting by a silent phone

Lest you think that you can trifle
with a married man whose wif’le
kick your ass and take your name
for I’m too dumb to blame

for that look upon my face
that says I’m ready to give chase
for the truth is “when I roam”
all the roads lead me back home

cuz my heart and soul were stolen
by blue eyes and locks so golden
that the sun would shield its eyes
whenever she passed by

now turned to silvery white
stuns the moon in autumns night
as the gentle azure skys
remain in awe of loving’s eyes

So continue on your quest
for I am truly blessed
to nightly wrestle for the quilt
as aging lover’s slowly wilt.
