JAN. 26 IS SPOUSE’S DAY

As a long-standing spouse,
I’d be lying if I say
That I am a louse….
At least, not every day.

As for MY spouse,
I can’t complain —
She may ruffle and grouse,
But at least, I’m still sane.

Now, you may say to me,
I’m just trying to be funny —
But what kind of bee would I be
Without my sweet honey?

But enough about my honey bee and me. Let’s see how other reasonably sane observers say (and sing) it:
