	I'm very disappointed in you
	and I don't handle disappointment well
	I'd like to say I could forgive you
	But I can never forgive; just forget

	Now it would take me ten long years to forget,
	That's 12 months of the year
	four weeks of the month
	and seven days a week
	Well that's a very tall order, I got to say--
	I don't have that much time to FORGET
	    That's a whole lot of hard and lonely time
	When we could be together

	Husband with this knife
	I do you adore
	I take you out of ths world baby
	with a lot of feeling
	and with this feeling I do bestow upon you
	all my wordly gifts
