I wanna be yours....
It's not actually her birthday until the end of next week, but because the celebrations are starting this weekend, and because I probably won't have a chance to post tomorrow, I thought I'd put this up now.
To my beautiful wife.
I Wanna Be Yours, by John Cooper Clarke
I wanna be your vacuum cleaner breathing in your dust I wanna be your Ford Cortina I will never rust If you like your coffee hot let me be your coffee pot You call the shots I wanna be yours I wanna be your raincoat for those frequent rainy days I wanna be your dreamboat when you want to sail away Let me be your teddy bear take me with you anywhere I don’t care I wanna be yours I wanna be your electric meter I will not run out I wanna be the electric heater you’ll get cold without I wanna be your setting lotion hold your hair in deep devotion Deep as the deep Atlantic ocean that’s how deep is my devotion
* please note that no actual vacuuming is guaranteed as a result of this. Indeed, on previous track record, this seems very unlikely indeed.... It's a metaphor, innit.
