I will sweep your flue

Come live with me and be my sweetheart now I’ll share my only bed with you and how! If you let me love you I’ll darn your old wool gloves 4 you If you come and meet me brow to brow. Come live with me ‘n teach me all you know About poetic licence and Defoe. I’ll mend your vacuum cleaner, Learn expressions meaner.. How cheerfully the hours to come will go, Come live with me and be my lover true Without one,whatever shall we do? I’ll mend all England’s railways Wreck the works on weekdays Come live with me and I will sweep your flue. Come live with me in Norway on a fjord I’ll use my Canon PowerShot if I 'm bored I’ll watch the flowers growing And see the waters flowing How happy Wittgenstein’d be if he’d know
