Makin’ potatoes au gratin and drinkin’ wine

Gonna hang some sheets out on the clothes line

See my wife walkin’ by I’m all “girl you fine!”

She looks at me oddly and I’m all “baby I’m trine”

I don’t know if my wife had a motto before we had kids, but now it’s definitely “Why do you guys encourage him”

Guardian: "A container ship nearly 100 metres longer than the height of London’s Shard..."
