I used to dream about Manhattan's skyline,
Pretend our names would make a Winchell byline,
But, darling, not so far---
That's the way you are.

When other lovers brought a handsome present,
Your little hug and kiss was much more pleasant,
Like wine and caviar.
That's the way you are.

I abandoned my castles in air
For a flat and a Frigidaire.
And I cancelled my trip up to Mars.
You kiss me, and then I see stars.

I thought we'd celebrate our anniversary,
But I was busy in our brand new nursery.
You bought a kiddie car!
That's the way you are.
