Blessed Man

This is my love song to my wife. Yeah, maybe it doesn't read like a love song right off, but read it through a couple of times and you'll see what I mean...

 

Honey won't you tell me
What I have to do
I've tried everything that I know how
To prove my love for you
I gladly bit the apple
While burning with desire
Now that the smoke is clearing away
It's out of the frying pan
And into the fire

Wo, wo, what do I know?
I've got my hat in my hand
Hey, hey, everyone say
What a lucky guy, he's a blessed man

Sometimes you have nightmares
Sometimes I have dreams
And we might both be wide awake
So who knows what that means
If you must accuse me
Then charge me with a crime
I don't mind a kangaroo court
'Cause I've already done my time

Wo, wo, what do I know?
I've got my hat in my hand
Hey, hey, everyone say
What a lucky guy, he's a blessed man

You spend all my money
Then you spend some more
Saying that you do without
Because we're too damn poor
I will give you diamonds
Someday, when I can
But for now, honey all you'll get
Is the heart of a blessed man

Wo, wo, what do I know?
I've got my hat in my hand
Hey, hey, everyone say
What a lucky guy, he's a blessed man

Wo, wo, what do I know?
I've got my heart in your hand
Hey, hey, everyone say
What a lucky guy, I'm a blessed man
