Would you remember to tell me all the things you forget now I’m your wife?
If I was your best friend, would you let me take care of you and do only the things that only a best friend can?
If I was your girlfriend, would you let me dress you? I mean help you pick off the bits of fluff before we go out? Sometimes those are the things that being in love’s about.
If I was your one and only friend, would you run with me if somebody asked you even if that someone was me? Sometimes I hallucinate on notions of doing a 5k
If I was your girlfriend…
Would you let me pull out your ear hairs? Could I make you not do the dishes all the time? Well then, could we let them drip dry? I mean, could we just hit play and lie on the sofa together? Cause to me, baby, that would be so fine
Baby, can I dress you? I mean help move you along so we can actually get out? Listen, man, I ain’t sayin it’s deafness but sometimes those are the things that being in love’s about
Is it really necessary for me to leave the heat off just because you wanna get pneumonia? We don’t have to leave the country to have a holiday. We don’t have to have a holiday to get stressed. Our savings is what I’m about…
Would I stop singing in this weird voice and callin you baby? Of course. For you, I would be quiet. Well, I’d try..
If I was your girlfriend…oops. Sorry, baby.
lol very cute: an ode to Prince and marriage 😉
Well spotted! Criminally conservative by Prince standards though.
Most definitely 😉
Haha. Clever. Did you get any answer?
I thought I saw a faint flicker of contemplation in his eyes, tric, but alas he couldn’t suspend disbelief for long enough to formulate one
Yup. That must be why people have affairs; life is sweeter, more relaxed, more appreciated as a girlfriend. It’s why I chose not to become a wife. Ironic then that we both recently ignored our 23 year anniversary. I’d be out in less for murder….
When you put it like that, monogamy is such an attractive option. Would you not be a common law wife? That’s probably how the press would describe you if you were to murder him. Hypothetically of course.
Aye, I’m a common wifie right enough 😉
I’m a whif, since I can’t cope with the full on title. And I knocked the ‘band’ off his and replaced it with a ‘h’. Don’t tell me what you call each other. The romance would be too much. Actually, do. Please.
Fecking love this, Tenderlation. I did read it to the tune, in my head. Very bittersweet. Next time I listen to his Purpleness I’ll substitute your words.
Phew. Relief, Tara. Feared a Prince fan would come on and brain me, as we fondly say round these parts. Hard to believe he’s gone. Sigh.
I’m still bloody sad. Even I’m starting to think I’m ridiculous.
