See the Pyramids

Wear your birthday suit on Christmas Day;
Watch the bubbles form on crème brûlée;
Build a ziggurat with potters' clay!
        You're the one for me.

Move to Curaçao and get a tan;
Read The Prisoner of Azkaban.
Hear Bob Dylan singing (if he can!)
        "You're the one for me!"


When in San Diego, Californ,
Pluck a rose for me (but watch that thorn!):
Heaven bless the day that you were born!
        You're the one for me.

How I dote upon your shapely bod!
Sacred are the paths your feet have trod.
Won't you kiss me, for the love of God?
        You're the one for me!


Fill your coffee-mug with gin and juice;
Find a comfy chair for your caboose:
As by now you likely can deduce,

        You're the one for me.

Another excellent one! You forgot to tell which song this is to: This one is from You Belong To Me by Jo Stafford, right? Even without the music this one is so well done!
