Another song from the songwriters night, again finished on the way there. It occurred to me that marriage is probably as much about the little things we do for eachother, as the things we tend to write love songs about. I've tried to redress the balance. I can't imagine Celine Dion singing this one.. This is for Dave and Rosemary. 50 years on, and he still makes her porridge.


I’ll make you porridge every morning
I’ll scrape the ice off of your car
I’ll get home late then take you shopping
I’ll let you hold the credit card

I’ll rub your back until my arms ache
Have a shave, get my hair cut
I’ll bring you cookies and a milkshake
I will wash and peel the spuds

We are making a love to last a lifetime
I don’t mind if it takes a little time
There’s nothing better than love to last a lifetime
I’ll do everything I can, to make you mine

I will hang out all the washing
Pairing up the odd black socks
Switch the TV off of standby
And I’ll switch off the cable box

I’ll make the tea and then wash up
I’ll ask you if you’d care to dance
I’ll hold your hair while you throw up
Now that is what I call romance

I’ll let you choose the pizza topping
Stay up and talk with you for hours
I’ll use the appropriate board for chopping
It means as much as buying flowers

Well I’ll remember what I promised
On that day you changed your name
And from that moment when our lips kissed
We started playing the long game
