When I was a young and randy lad
(Hoping soon to be a dad),
A kindly auntie told me this: ††††††
If you want to treasure wedded bliss, ††††††
Donít go to sleep while youíre still mad. ††††††
Talk all night if you must, my dear, ††††††
Make a snack, sip some tea; ††††††
But the basic key to happiness ††††††
Is never to say Ďletís sleep on ití ††††††
And do it with a bitter sneer. ††††††
Find a way to make up and kiss ††††††
Or else your life will soon be sad.
I thought her advice so very clear
That Iíve followed it down to the present day;
And Iím still happy at sixty-three!
