Honey, do string some lights on the house and around the yard,
now quit complainin', it's not all that hard.
Oh, hang some mistletoe, and trim the tree,
why do you hate doing a little bit for me?
You know that I don't ask all that much,
spray the tree for a real snowy touch.
One more time you should mow the lawn,
you can do that tomorrow right after dawn.
Now really, I don't ask all that much from you,
helping me out a little is the least you can do.
I know, the least you can do is your exact thought,
you should be very thankful that it isn't hot.
You know in warm weather there's lots more to do,
but now I'm only asking you to do a few.
Oh, can you go buy some replacement Christmas lights,?
some will need replacing after two or three nights.
And while you're out, get a loaf or bread or two,
no cantaloupe or watermelon, but grab a 'HONEYDEW'..............
