Mary, Mary, I’m in a trance

After our delightful dance

When my life is so enhanced

I love it.


Trying to dance is so much fun

Even though we’ve just begun

So what if we’re still at number one

Stay with it.


My love for you is like a song

That never ends and it is strong

Against what we see perhaps as wrong

We right it.


Each day I feel so close to you

I like to remember how we grew

To be this loving family who

So live it.
