My Life



I love reminiscing, I have many happy memories to share

Like when I met my hubby, in a pub with all my friends there

He was kind of popular, I was just shy and coy

We were such an odd couple, he was just a boy

My friends all dared me to speak to him and make the very first move

But I was slowly diminishing, my bravery I had none to prove

So I stood on my lonesome and looked around the room

Just waiting to be whisked away or face my pending doom

Then a solitary figure stood right beside my glass

Said, I haven't seen you here before, on your own lass?

I turned right round to face him and it was the very same lad

Those friends of mine in the corner had told him I was mad


I was pretty shell-shocked and didn't know what to say

So I began about the weather and what I'd done today

But he just kept on staring and looking in my eyes

And from that very moment I knew that he was nice

Well we talked until closing and then I took him home

He didn't have a car back then and I wasn't leaving alone

I'll see you tomorrow he said with a smile if that's okay with you

I nodded with a heart that was racing what else could I do

I traveled home that night shocked and in a daze

I hoped that this little meeting wasn't just a phase


Well, we met each night after work and at weekend too

This was just the real thing I guess right then I knew

He had a black mustache; it was the eighties he was cool

His hair was long and flowing and always played the fool

He had a silver jacket the butt of many joke

And always made me laugh every time he spoke

Our life was an adventure the things we used do

Go away on holidays and in the winter too

We were young and careless and still quite wild

Never thought of marriage or having a child

Then he just proposed my heart went in a flutter

Those words rang in my ears although just a mutter


It was Autumn 1989 when we walked down the isle

You couldn't see my face for the huge smile

We went to Cyprus on honeymoon and went to Egypt too

Took in a trip to Israel, what a life before us if only we knew

Our little girl was born in February ninety one

That little precious baby and our freedom gone

But it wasn't such a price to pay for a little ray of light

She's filled our world with happiness we did everything right

To make a special person, you need a good mum and dad

And she tells us every day we're the best she's ever had

Of course she's only joking she knows there's only us

And we're her loving parents whom over her we fuss

We've created a little gemstone, between us we did fine

Her eyes and nose belong to him the mouth is definitely mine


Oh it's so good to reminisce and lovely memories not bad

How a young lad in the eighties became my hubby and dad

And I thank my lucky stars today, even though this life is cruel

Even though I'm not the girl he married he still thinks I am cool

So go away scleroderma, you won't change my life

I'll always be a loving mum and equally loving wife
