I once knew a guy who said
I believe that love is quite dead!
Or it is surely a myth
There’s just nothing to it
It’s totally all in your head!
I know that I can lust
And like if I really must
But love’s not a part
Of my mind or my heart
I don’t understand what’s the fuss.
Then Cupid, he came a calling
And before long, the man was falling
Head over his heels
Like slipping on peels
In Love, which to him was appalling.
Now a wife and three kids has he
In love and very happy
I am close with his wife
Actually living his life,
For that man, you guessed it, is me!
