600,000 Hours

Six hundred thousand hours
I’ll spend with you my dear
You will bring us Sons and Daughters
We’ll nurture through the years

They will bring us so much laughter

We’ll put a plaster on their tears
Before during and after
We will have to hide our fears

Six hundred thousand hours
Twenty five thousand days
We’ll go through them together
Come what may

School and work it will define them
We will teach them as they grow
Too soon we will be without them
They will learn what we don’t know

Side by side we will travel far and wide
A hundred places we must see
I will take ten thousand pictures
The past present and what will be
Six hundred thousand hours
Twenty five thousand days
We’ll go through them together
Come what may

I will buy you summer flowers

No matter what the time of year
Through winters stormy showers
Our days will always be clear

When our final days are numbered

We will tend each others ails
When we finally go under
We will share the wood and nails

Six hundred thousand hours
Twenty five thousand days
We’ll go through them together
Come what may
