Once a upon a time there was a man of no surprise,
No matter how much he tried his actions were his demise.
He thinks he will be clever in getting his girl to the alter
So he takes her to the wedding ring counter.
With questions and jests to the clerk of the place
He tries to get her into perusing the wedding ring case
When she does not respond and wonders off to look around
He suddenly spots her Christmas present he had found.
With a huff and a puff, and his brain shut down
He calls Dancer and Prancer to send her to town
Away with you, he cries, away with you now
And with a frown, to the food court she does plow.
After a time with brain still in a muddle
His thoughts come back and now thinks he can cuddle
So he runs to the one he wants most in his life
Remembering his first plan that was to ask her to be his wife.
As he finds her outside the food court at the mall
Then suddenly asks the question to be answered first of all
Will you marry me he says with a shout
Not thinking about that he had just cast her out.
She still wanted to be mad that he sent her away
you dismiss me then ask me that, she says to his dismay
but she could not stay mad at him long
for she knew it was with him was where she belonged
So she stopped prolonging his grief and worry
And told him yes she it was him she would marry.
For the one thing a girl wants is a man that is true
And no bad surprises in a husband is a big thing too
