Three Little Words

“Darling,” he said, “I love you precious
And adore you dear,
Just say to me those three short words
You know I love to hear.

If you do that, you’ll make me happy
As a teddy bear,
So utter those three little words
And make me dance on air.”

Her eyes twinkled, she looked at him
Mischievous as an elf,
Then whispered in his ear three little words:
“Go hang yourself.”
