VP_017407 Verse 1In a snug little cot, Nice and cozy, cozy, cozy, How delightful our lot; Life how rosy, rosy, rosy. Housework I'd love to do, dear, I'd slave all day for you dear, Our devotion none could measure, For toil for love is only pleasure. Chorus 1You'd rise at dawn, dear, Ev'ry sunday morn, dear, Mow the lawn, dear, for love! While hubby mows, dear, You would mend his clothes, dear, Darn his hose, dear, for love! We'd be a pair well mated, As glove matches glove. I'd fry fishes, dear, I'd wash dishes, dear, That's what I'd do for love! Verse 2Then a garden we'd grow, Nice and sunny, sunny, sunny, Where we'd raise eggs you know, And some honey, honey, honey. Of pigs we'd have a few dear, And just a bee or two dear, Coffee vines for demitasses, And sugar bushes for molasses. Chorus 2You'd be a big dear, In the garden dig, dear, Feed the pig, dear, for love! While piggie feeds, dear, You would plant the seeds, dear, Pull the weeds, dear, for love! We'd be a pair well mated, As glove matches glove. I'd trim trees for you, I'd milk bees for you, That's what I'd do for love!
