It started way back in third grade. I used to sit beside Emma Lue
Gates. Pink Dress, matching bow and her ponytail. She kissed me on the
school bus but told me not to tell. Next Day I chased her 'round the
playground. Across the monkey bars to the merry-go-'round. Emma Lue got
caught passing me a note. Before the teacher took it, I read what she
Do you love me? Do you want to be my friend? And if you do. Well
then don't be afraid to take me by the hand, If you want to. I think
this is how love goes Check Yes or No.
Now we're grown up and she's my wife. We still like to kiss with
stars in our eyes. Ain't much changed I still chase Emma Lue, up and
down the hall, 'round the bed in our room. Last night I took her out in
a white limousine. Twenty years together she still gets to me. It ain't
even been that long ago, since it got started, with just a little note.
