Otherwise you couldnít tell them apart,
But Betty had straight hair, and Hetty all curls,
When they grew up, they tricked all their dates,
Soon they were known as the devious girls.
Last night the rain was quite a surprise,
Lawn cushions were wet when we went to sit down,
We flopped them over a chair, went into the house,
Got some dry towels, one pink, one brown.
Drank hot coffee and read the paper,
ĎTil a cloud blew in a cold wind,
Just wasnít the morning for coffee and deck,
Now thatís what I call a sin.
Turned our thoughts to the wedding
Of some of our next of kin,
The groom was way too fat,
The bride was way too thin.
Remember the twins we talked of above,
Betty was full of hate, Hetty all love,
Now which do you think the groom did wed?
He made a mistake, and thatís enough said.

She dreamed of living by the sea
He dreamed of mountains high
Yet they walked together
And never questioned why...
She loved the velvet ebon sky
Where stars like diamonds shone
He loved the warmth of sunshine
And faced dawn on his own.
She loved the rhythm, loved the rhyme
of song and poetry
Sports were his weekend refuge
To set his tensions free
She loved the comfort of her home
Safe within its breast
He loved to travel far and wide-
And open spaces best
So many difference they had
...Yet confident and sure
She knew she loved him more than life
And he knew he loved her!
