From March of this year. Tweaked a bit just now.




See the Pyramids

Wear your birthday suit on Christmas Day;
Watch the bubbles form on crème brûlée;
Build a ziggurat with potters' clay!
        You're the one for me.

 

Move to Curaçao and get a tan;
Read The Prisoner of Azkaban.
Hear Bob Dylan singing (if he can)!
        You're the one for me.

 

When in Calgary or Californ,

Pluck a rose for me, but watch the thorn!

Heaven bless the day that you were born:

        You're the one for me.

 

How I dote upon your shapely bod!
Sacred are the paths your feet have trod.
Won't you kiss me, for the love of God?
        You're the one for me!

 

Fill your coffee-mug with gin and juice;
Find a comfy chair for your caboose:
You're bewitching me, you silly goose!
        You're the one for me.

Patti Page would love this!
What a great take on an old standard.
The rythm and rhyme are perfect.
Bravo.
