Happiness is King

Happiness is King

He rushed home from work with a huge bunch of flowers
And sat at her bedside for two or three hours
She puffed and panted and timed the contractions
He packed up a suitcase and swung into action
He was pouring with sweat as they pulled from the drive
He started to panic as they sped through the night
He had to have gas to calm down his condition
You’d think it was him who was in there delivering

Six years of trying trying so hard
Had led to the moment that melted their hearts
She thought it was her, he thought it was him
But love persevered and now happiness is king
He looked through the sheets at the head of his baby
And stunned by the sight he got tearful and shaky
The nurse wiped his forehead and time froze in motion
He looked at his loved one her eyes so wide open

He blinked and out came the rest of the body
It was covered in blood all wrinkled and soggy
The stork had delivered the knot in the evening
Six years they’d been waiting and here it was sleeping
