Our hearts combined

Our hearts combined in austere times

It happened with a kiss

but when it came to wedding gifts

Out thoughts were all adrift

We don't need pans or scales in grams

No towels or table mats

No chopping boards, no knives, no forks

It's lolly that we lack

We hope you won't be hurt by this

Or think our motives brash

It's just that costs went through the roof

So we'd rather have the cash

There's no easy way to say this

No matter how one tries

Your gifts would all be wonderful

But the money twice as nice
