Perennial




Please come and live with me, said he.
My parents won't agree, said she, 
they'll tell me that it's not for me
and I would rather marry.

But if we wed then not agree,
it could end in divorce, said he,
and this way you will easy see
I'm no Tom or Dick or Harry.

Look, said she, quite honestly
though you're a special man to me,
it's something that can never be
unless your name I carry.

You're something of a pest, said he,
I know what works the best for me
- it's not marriage and monogamy
so I'll no longer tarry.
