When you want to get me in the mood
You strip down to just your boxer shorts
Tell me that I look so hot tonight
Then strike poses of various sorts.
Sometimes I could almost laugh out loud
We have been married for thirty years
You'd think you would know to drop my pants
You need to entirely switch your gears!
Do the dishes for only one night
You will be my most studly old man.
Run the vacuum, dust, or cook a meal,
I will gladly do you in our van!!!
I find it funny that you can hear
My bra unhook from way down the street
But you can't hear a child crying
When right underneath your own two feet!!!
You want me to wear some lingerie
And act like a dancer at a club?
But all I think is that’s one more piece
Of dirty laundry in the wash tub!!
So here it is, my sweet other half
So efforts are no longer thwarted:
Get off your rear end, take out the trash
That's sexy, and will be rewarded!!!
