The Lyrics

Don't look for answer songs. Just take your chance in songs. Don't ask me why. If it helps, this IS my favorite Sinatra song -- except for "Theme From 'New York, New York,'" for baseball reasons.
(instrumental opening)

That's wife?
(That's wife!)
That's what all the people say.
Throws me kiss in April
handbag in May.
But dedicate to her a good tune
and she'll come right back up
right back up in June!

That's wife?
(That's wife!)
And as funny as it may seem
I never imagined this one
when I would start to dream.
But I won't
But I won't let it get her down.
'Cause she keeps my heart
keeps it spinning around!

I've been a sucker, a stalker, a singer, a writer
a pawn and a king.
I've been up and down and over and out
and I know one thing:
Each time I imagine
her lovely face
I just face me the fact:
Between us, there's too much space!

That's wife?
(That's wife!)
Could I dare deny it?
Each expensive thing she'd want
I'm in no position to buy it!
But it's got to be worth a good try
'cause you never wanna
never wanna make this girl cry!

I've written 'bout Catherine and J-Lo and Jolie and Alba.
They've made my heart sing.
I've been up and down and over and out
and I'll tell ya one thing:
Each time I think I might
fall flat on my face
I just
and get
the chase!

That's wife?
(That's wife!)
That's wife, so why deny it?
There's a pair of tickets to Vegas
and maybe we oughta buy it.

But there's a few guys on this site
such a wedding would make cry...

They're gonna curl their hands up...

in a big fist...

I could die!

My my!
Stay tuned...
