First Wife

 

As you may have guessed, I'm a single guy.  But I did once want to propose to a girl I truly loved.  I wrote her this song to let her know of my intentions.  Of course,   I was being realistic about our prospects.

First Wife

I know things between us, May seem a little strange,
I’m so sorry for the way I’ve treated you baby, That’s all about to change.
I once avoided my commitments; They use to scare me away.
But, watch me get down on my knee, girl, Listen to what I have to say.

You look shocked this must be sudden, Must be a big surprise.
I’ll explain my decision, while tears of joy fill your eyes.
It’s just I already see you Almost every single day,
So I figure if we’re married, what difference would it make.

The pre-nuptials are all drawn up.You get the kids as long as I get the truck.

So far, you’re the best thing I’ve found.
And we’re going to be married, So turn that frown upside down.
Why don’t you go ahead and practice Saying “Yes I do.”
Don’t you realize what has happened? All your dreams have just come true.
