Ours

Sweetheart, please explain to me why

These days I always hear you say

“MY books, MY things” and “YOUR dog” (why?)

And “Let me do it. That’s MY way.”

 

Whatever is mine is yours too!

Do ‘MY’ and ‘YOUR’ still got to stay?

If your love for me would be true,

You’d say “OUR books, OUR dog, OUR way.”
