My Lady

 

Do you remember when we did meet

You thought me obnoxious, I thought you sweet

But I wouldn't give up on such a pretty sight

And I think you were surprised when I asked that night

 

And I love you more now than I did back then

You are my lover, you are my friend

Our love it grows stronger every day, it's true

Oooh, my lady, I love you

 

Diapers and Big-Wheels as the family grew

Camping vacations and programs at school

Football and baseball with the neighborhood kids

And as I take a look back Iím glad we did what we did

 

And I love you more now than I did back then

You are my lover, you are my friend

Our love it grows stronger every day, it's true

Oooh, my lady, I love you

 

A few years later the kids are 'bout grown

They're off in college, they're out on their own

My hair is thinner than it used to be

But you're still looking awfully cute to me

 

And I love you more now than I did back then

You are my lover, you are my friend

Our love it grows stronger every day, it's true

Oooh, my lady, I love you

 

We've had our good times, we've had our hard times

Never guessed we'd be where we are today

I've not always been the man you need me to be

But I think I've learned a few things along the way

 

Time will move us to the latter years

We'll have more laughter and we'll shed a few tears

Once again it's just you and me

And I think what I'm gonna say will be

 

I love you more now than I did back then

You are my lover, you are my friend

Our love it grows stronger every day, it's true

Oooh, my lady, I love you
