I can tolerate you!


Go Home

Well let me tell you if you're feeling alone,
Instead of whining and moaning,
Just get on the phone,
tell her you're coming home
If you need, you should be there
If you scream in your sleep,
or collapse in a heap
And spontaneously weep,
then you know you're in deep
If you need her, you should be there
Go Home

There's nothing better than affairs of the heart
To make you feel so good then tear you apart
Make up your mind and stick it out or start again
You can't imagine what an effort it takes
When you make a mistake
And you know in the wake that a heart's going to break
If you need her, you should be there
If you're flummoxed and flushed
And your heartbeat is rushed
Then get out of the slush,
tell your dog team to mush
If you need her, you should be there
Go Home

If you think of her as Joan of Arc
She's burning for you, get your car out of park
If you think of her as Catherine the Great
Then you should be the horse to help her meet her fate
If you need her, you should be there
Go Home

You can't believe it,
but it's true
She's given everything to you
Now take a moment to be sure
Before you give it all to her
Well now you're thinking that it's over at last,
All your woes in the past
But you've got to be fast; put your foot on the gas
If you need her, you should be there
so now you're out from under the gun
And it's over and done
I won't spoil all the fun but if you ever wonder
She'll be there if you need her
Go Home

If you're lucky to be one of the few
To find somebody who can tolerate you
Then I shouldn't have to tell you again
Just pack your bags and get yourself on a plane
If you need her, you should be there
Go Home

If you need her, you should be there
Go Home

Today I looked over at my husband and thought to myself yah I could be with you for another 5o years. We still drive each other crazy and well sometimes I want to slap him silly. If you know Liam you know he moves really, really, slow. So slow in fact that I call him The Slug. I am thinking of having a shirt made with "The Slug" printed on it and a slug dressed like a super hero put on the back! If you know me you know I move really fast. I believe that everyone should move as fast I do. But alas I married a slug so sometimes I have to get into the slow lane and wait for him to move over. But this made me think of the song "Go Home" and the lyrics If you're lucky to be one of the few To find somebody who can tolerate you ... and I thought yah not a bad plan. So I say to you if you find someone who can tolerate you well don't let them go! There maybe no one else who can handle you and your weird idiosyncrasies! Happy Hunting if you are still single.

Here's to the only other couple I know who argues about socks in bed... may you have those next 50 years and may your worst argument only be about the socks!
