A Song of Love

What shall we do with an empty bear can?
What shall we do with an empty bear can?
What shall we do with an empty bear can?
Early in the morning.

Gas canister and fishing tackle
Gas canister and fishing tackle
Gas canister and fishing tackle
Early in the morning.

Oh Lord and how she rattles
Oh Lord and how she rattles
Oh Lord and how she rattles
Early in the morning.

Stuff the space with dirty laundry
Stuff the space with dirty laundry
Stuff the space with dirty laundry
Early in the morning.

Hey Ho and up she rises
Hey Ho and up she rises
Hey Ho and up she rises
Early in the morning.

She: "Are you putting your dirty clothes into the bear can? That’s gross!"

Me: "But the gas canister I am carrying--the one I took from your pack--is rattling, and this way it’s quiet"

She; "It’s still gross!"

Me:  "OK.  I’ll wash the bear canister when we get home"

Marriage is built on compromises
Marriage is built on compromises
Marriage is built on compromises
Thirty-five years and counting.
