To Love, To Honour And Obey


To love, to honour and obey
Her three vows on her wedding day
She loved and honoured for awhile
But she never once did obey.

Her husband quite a pleasant man
With him she always had her way
And he adhered to his marriage vows
To love, to honour and obey.

He quickly aged before his time
And poor health gave way to decay
And he died at forty nine years old
And a cheap headstone tell where he lay.

And she made sure she held her looks
And with tints and dyes she hid her gray
And she paid huge sum for new face lift
And she looked like one in her prime day.

In time she met with younger man
And though with him she did not have her way
They married and she kept her vows
To love, to honour and obey.

To love, to honour and obey
Her three vows on her wedding day
She loved and honoured for awhile
But she never once did obey.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
