One of my friends taught me a verse that we always sang
Henry, Henry,
Here is my answer true:
I'd be crazy if I married you.
It won't be a stylish marriage;
You can't afford a carriage.
But I'll be switched
If I'll get hitched
On a bicycle built for two!

As for me, except for an occasional heart attack, I
feel as young as I ever did.
