Let’s play a game Just for today We’ll banish our worries and troubles away With you I’ll run far, fly high, swim deep From now morning has broken ‘til we fall asleep At the start, let’s pretend That you’ve put your back out And some newbie swans in, and you have your doubts But you blush when you notice he’s handsome and tall You agree to a date in no time at all! North London’s the set For our wild japes and jaunts We’ll go places that soon will become our old haunts You’ll teach me to cook and grow greens in a tub And I’ll teach you to recognise ‘Mulan’ and ‘Up’ We’ll take turns ‘tween the tennis And Wicked West End shows Seeing some that I love and some we don’t know Date night out, eating in, fam and friends ‘round for tea, Chocolate cake and jim-jams and flake-time TV Can we dream, in our game? Sure, that’s what it’s for! Let’s dream that our two becomes three, even four! They’ll bunk in the treehouse, take the pup for a run, While I heal the aching and you teach the young We could go on forever In this game of ours Walking home hand in hand under street-lamps and stars I know from your eyes that it’s love we both feel So let’s not play a game – let’s make it real.
