I Knew Your Mother

I Knew Your Mother

She was a beauty sleek and serene
her temper was a nightmare,
but her face was a dream
I never thought that I would stand a chance
but a sweet tooth turned sweet talk to romance

She had the heart I had the muscle and bone
I said let’s make a baby she said build me a home
all in all it was a hell of a ride
but as we both got big there weren’t no room inside

Waistbands stretching through diets and fads
piling on the pounds with the pots and pans
scales straining with the calorie count
but there’s always a little more chocolate around

Highchair to deckchair
we dance and we sing
living like paupers dreaming like kings
time is a battle that no one can win
but I knew your mother when we were both thin

But we keep living ‘cos we can’t give up
one more breath may be all we got
time is a battle that no one can win
but I knew your mother when we were both thin
