An Anniversary Song

Howdy Bookworms!

Today marks four years since I married Jim. Last year I wrote a series of Limericks to celebrate. This year I thought I’d try my hand at a song parody. I’m bad at being overtly affectionate, so I opt for the tongue-in-cheek. I got in touch with my inner Carly Simon, and it’s… ridiculous. The story of us, Weird Al style (to the tune of “You’re So Vain”):

You walked up to the soundboard, and I noticed that you were hot.

It was apparent you didn’t realize it, I fell for you right on the spot.

I made a mission for myself,Β to see you become mine.

I started to think about how I should stalk you,

How I should stalk you, man.

You’re so sane.

Compared to me you’re quite well adjusted.

You’re so sane.

Your oddities are merely eccentric-

You walk quick and nitpick…

This was our engagement photo. Highly functional relationship!

I met you more than 10 years ago, when you were still quite naive.

Over the years I managed to wear you down,

And now you can never leave (muahahahaha)

You’re stuck with me till the end of time, which fills me up with glee.

I hope you don’t mind that I still suck at cooking,

Still suck at cooking, oh.

You’re so sane.

Actually, you’re probably crazy.

But I won’t complain,

Because you love me even when I am lazy.

Don’t you? Don’t you?!

i married you

When the nonsense tunes are sung in our house, it’s usually all your fault.

Now that I’ve given one a try, I warn you they may never halt.

With all our puns and cheesy jokes, it’s been a lot of fun.

There’s nobody else that I’d rather have married,

Rather have married, but-

We’re insane

We’re a charming pair of neurotics

It’s so plain-

Look at our surveillance home electronics.

And comic harmonics.Β 

Thanks for putting up with that, Bookworms. Happy Anniversary, Jim! Thanks for putting up with me. XOXO.

      We had a lovely dinner out- I enjoyed watching my picky eater husband tasting creme brulee for the first time! His verdict? “I liked the burned sugar. Can we get it without the pudding next time?”

    This is my new favorite song! I hope it gets put on YouTube so I can share it and turn you into the next Bieber! Just funnier and with more penguins.

    Happy Anniversary to you two. I am glad you found each other.

    I’m late, but HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! You guys are too, too adorable. My monitor is about to explode from all the cuteness.

    This is so very cute! For me, humour is one of the most important assets in a relationship, so it seems like you two have a really good thing going. Happy belated anniversary!

Talk to me, Bookworms!
