He was just a couch potato
While she was a ‘Maxine’…
This marriage may be in trouble,
If things are as they seem.

He’s stretched out on the sofa,
A beer can in his hand…
The lawn could use a mowing,
But that isn’t in his plan.

Her hair is in rag curlers
And she has no makeup on…
No use to get all gussied up
When there’s a ballgame on.

What holds this marriage together?
Is it something that’s not human?
Well, he sees her as Bo Derek
And he is her own Paul Newman!
