Sometimes I sit and wonder
What you see in me.
I’m not always the nicest guy around:
Do you just choose not to see?
I don’t always say the right thing:
Put my foot in it often as not.
My big mouth causes me trouble
But it’s the only one I’ve got.
I know I’m not always considerate
Of how you feel and what you say.
How do you put up me like this
Day after day after day?
I break my promises I sincerely make to you
And often I don’t do what I say I am going to do.
I’m stupid when you need sensible,
Often late when you want reliable.
I don’t always act my age
Drink too much and act the fool.
I’m untidy, lazy and a slob
I sure don’t pull my weight
I put a lot of pressure on
Your overburdened plate.
On the plus side, though I know you laugh at me
Even if it’s unintentional And inappropriately.
I buy you chocolates and flowers
On Valentines and your birthday
At Christmas I buy a present that costs
More than I can afford to pay
I clean up after the dog daily
And empty the cat-litter tray as well
All because you say you cannot stand
The awful, disgusting smell.
I hug you and I tell you
When you look sexy as hell
(To be fair you say the same thing
To me, sometimes, as well)
I know I’m still crazy about you
I tell you frequently
You say that you still feel the same
But do you really like me?
