SWEETHEART

IT WAS VALENTINES DAY AND WHAT DID I DO?
I MADE A GREAT BIG HEART,THAT SAID "I LOVE YOU"


WHILE  MY HUBBY WAS SHAVING, THE KIDS AND I
TIED IT TO THE BACK OF THE CAR, IT WAS TWO FEET HIGH

WE ALL WERE SMILING AS WE WAVED GOODBYE
WE ALL LAUGHED SO HARD WE THOUGHT WE'D CRY

I CALLED THE SHOP AND TOLD THE MAN AT THE GATE
HE GOT SUCH A KICK- HE COULD HARDLY WAIT

WHEN HE GOT TO WORK AND GOT OUT OF THE CAR
THE GATE MAN SAID "HEY, WHAT'CHA GOT THAR?''

WHEN HUBBY WENT TO THE BACK TO SEE,
THERE WAS THE VALENTINE, TO HIM FROM ME.

T'WAS THEN HE KNEW WHY PEOPLE SMILED AND BLEW THEIR HORN
ALL THE WAY TO WORK, THAT VALENTINE MORN
