Would you marry me?
You would make a bigamist out of me
But it's me who is married and not you
Well if you can have two husbands then I would want two wives, in fact I would have three or four.
Why would you want three or four?
I would want a little fat one to do the cooking
But she might not like it
Oh yes she would, she would love it, you know the type, nibbling at the ingredients all day. "Um Jam Roly-Poly" while taking a teaspoon to get the last of the jam from the jar
Who else would you have?
Would we live in a big house with a big garden back and front?
Then we would need a gardener, get her birthday presents pretending they are for her.
Like a Flymo
And what would you be doing?
I'd be sitting on the patio reading the newspaper, and she would be saying, ah look at the flowers aren't they beautiful, what do think of the roses?
And I would look up briefly and say, Aye Canny
And what would be my purpose?
To check when the bed linen needs to be changed
With a reluctant smile on her face
While all the lads around and about are busting a gut

A question often asked, at least in this neck of the woods is:
Do you think I am beautiful?
The question is asked by those who are and those who are obviously not.
I ask if the woman is married, if they reply, yes, then I reply:
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Your husband is your beholder

Another question often asked, at least in this neck of the woods is:
Would you marry me?
Over the last 15 year or so it is probably the question I have been asked most often by women.
The question is not a proposal.
It is an attempt to view the fairy tale world that a lot of woman think of that includes a tint of the other persons thoughts.
Over many years I have become totally bored with all, to the extent that now I often answer, "Not a cat in hells chance."
"Urrrr so, what did you think of the score of the football match over the weekend gone?"
