You are the Mother I received
The day I wed your son.
And I just want to thank you, Rose
For all the things you’ve done.
You’ve given me a gracious man
With whom I share my life
You are his loving mother and
I his lucky Wife.
You used to Pat his little head
And now I hold his hand.
You raised in love a little boy
And gave to me a man.
Yes, I’ll Marry You by Pam Ayres
Yes, I’ll marry you, my dear,
And here’s the reason why;
So I can push you out of bed
When your snoring makes me cry.
And if we hear a knocking
And it’s creepy and it’s late,
I hand you the torch you see
And you investigate
Yes I’ll marry you, my dear,
You may not apprehend it,
But when the tumble-drier goes
It’s you that has to mend it,
You have to face the neighbour
Should our Labrador attack him,
And if a drunkard fondles me
It’s you that has to whack him.
Yes I’ll marry you
You’re virile and you’re lean,
My house is like a pigsty
You can help to keep it clean.
That sexy little dinner
Which you serve by candlelight,
As I do chipolatas,
You can cook it every night!
It’s you who has to work the drill
And put up curtain track,
And When I’ve got PMT it’s you who gets the flack,
I do see great advantages,
But none of them for you,
And so before you see the light,
I do, I do, I do!
Thank you for sharing our lives latest chapter
And filling our day with memories to capture
As we turn each page on our wedding day
Lets all remember those not here today.
We want them to know we both hold them dear
And are thinking of them although they are not near
And whenever the sun shines from above
The warmth that we feel is that of their love.
As we look around today, it gives us pleasure to see
The smiling faces of our friends and family.
On this day full of joy as everyone meets
Just one thing remains to make everything complete.
So lets drink a toast to all absent friends
And savour each moment right to the end.
Let there be no sadness, no tears to weep
But fond memories locked in our hearts, to keep.
