My cousin Lennie has a heart of gold.
When you meet him you will be instantly sold.
He recently retired, but is still in his prime.
His lovely wife Susan now loves his free time.

Lennie is a connoisseur of all kinds of beer.
He has a couple daily by his pool with his wife so dear.
His wife Susan is strictly a vodka tonic kind of gal.
After a long day, a cocktail raises the morale.

Sitting by the pool with a beer, and then grill…
What more can you ask for if you want to chill!
They are just as in love as when they first met.
Lennie puts on some jazz, then the mood is set.

They listen to the music and begin to dance.
It’s the perfect setting for a little romance.
Lennie counts his blessings, as he reaches for another beer.
He knows he is a lucky man,  that is indeed crystal clear.
