lyrics

While you're laughing I am dreaming
At a most relaxed pace
Swinging gently in our hammock
Making crowns of Queen Anne's lace

Should you kiss me I will kiss you
For I've been dreaming of the day
That we'll live together
And things will go this way

Reading the paper
Eating fried eggs with toast
You're the one that I love the most
You're the one that I love the most

Mixing martinis
Being the world's best host
You're the one that I love the most
You're the one that I love the most

As you waken I stand by our bed
Bearing breakfast trays
Coffee, orange juice, buttered toast
Cream, jam, and two poached eggs

While you're working, I am cleaning
Dusting baseboards, also basting
Tender pork ribs in the oven
Just for you to enjoy tasting

Juicing the oranges
Frying up the french toast
You're the one that I love the most
You're the one that I love the most

Peeling potatoes
Roasting a big pot roast
You're the one that I love the most
You're the one that I love the most

Betty Crocker says the clever wife
Always keeps her cool
She has an apron that she sewed herself
That makes her husband drool

Reading the paper
Eating fried eggs with toast
You're the one that I love the most
You're the one that I love the most
