I wrote this for my brother and his fiance when they got engaged.
Chris and Jocelyn, you’re just starting out
Happiness is in your future, we have no doubt.
But, when times get tough and you feel like jumping ship
Let me remind you of these important tips.
When Jocelyn gets you mad as wives do, of course
Listen to Obi Wan and use the force.
Keep your cool and talk it out
Nothing gets solved when you scream and shout.
And Jocelyn when Chris makes you mad as hell
Put his old Star Wars toys on Ebay to sell.
If he hogs the remote, cut him some slack,
If she likes to shop, get off her back.
Love each other for who you are,
A boy and a girl who met at a bar.
It was love at first sight, or so the story goes,
You were too drunk to tell so no one really knows.
Nine whole months we waited to hear,
That Chris had a girlfriend - Hooray! He's not queer!
It's a special thing finding the love of your life
And promising to be true as husband and wife.
So first came love and now a marriage
and hopefully next a designer baby carriage.
