World's Shortest Fairy Tale

 
World's Shortest Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, a girl asked a guy, "Will you marry me?" The guy said "No" And the girl lived happily ever after and went shopping, drank martinis with friends, always had a clean house, never had to cook, had a closet full of shoes and handbags, stayed skinny and was never farted on.
 
The End.

I got this in my email & it was too funny not to share with all of you. Reminds me a bit of the book "The Paper Bag Princess" which I read to my students, along with The Sneetches for our Stereotypes, Prejudice & Discrimination chapter. HA!
As I write this though "Who Loves You" by Franki Valli & The Four Seasons is playing on my cable. Ugh....I love that song! See this is why we put up with guys! HA!

Oh God now as I'm searching for the link all these others..."
If You Leave Me Now" (Chicago), "Everything I Own" (Bread), "Time in A Bottle" (Jim Croce), "I'd Like To Make It With You" (Bread), "We've Only Just Begun" (Carpenters), "If" (Bread). "You Are So Beautiful" (Joe Cocker), "Just The Way You Are" (Billy Joel)....oh man we had great songs growing up! I now know what it is like...when we complained about our folks just liking the songs they grew up with...HA! That's it...I'm a goner now...I'll be sobbing here in a minute! Total Mush!  

Who loves you pretty baby,
Who's gonna help you through the night?

Who loves you pretty mama,
Who's always there to make it right?

Who loves you pretty baby,
Who's gonna help you through the night?

Who loves you pretty mama,
Who's always there to make it right?

Who loves you,
Who loves you pretty baby?
Who's gonna love you mama?

Who loves you,
Who loves you pretty baby?

When tears are in your eyes,
And you can't find the way.

It's hard to make believe,
You're happy when you're gray.

Baby when you're feelin' like,
You'll never see the mornin' light.

Come to me,
Baby, you'll see.

Who loves you pretty baby,
Who's gonna help you through the night?

Who loves you pretty mama,
Who's always there to make it?

Who loves you,
Who loves you pretty baby?
Who's gonna love you mama?

Who loves you,
Who loves you pretty baby?

And when you think,
The whole wide world has passed you by.

You keep on tryin',
But you really don't know why.

Baby when you need a smile,
To help the shadows drift away.

Come to me,
Baby, you'll see.

Who loves you pretty baby,
Who's gonna help you through the night?

Who loves you pretty mama,
Who's always there to make it?

Who loves you,
Who's gonna love you, love you?
Who's gonna love you?

Who loves you,
Who's gonna love you, love you?
Who's gonna love you?

Baby,
Baby,
Doot-doo-doot.

Come to me,
Baby, you'll see.

Who loves you pretty baby,
Who's gonna help you through the night?

Who loves you pretty mama,
Who's always there to make it?

Who loves you,
Who's gonna love you, love you?
Who's gonna love you?

Who loves you,
Who's gonna love you, love you?
Who's gonna love you
