Verse:
I'm dis -con -tent -ed with homes that are rent -ed so I have in -ven -ted my own;
Dar -ling this place is a lov -er's o -as -is, where life's wear -y chase is un -known.
Far from the cry of the cit -y where flow -ers pret -ty car -ess the streams,
Cos -y to hide in, to live side by side in, don't let it a -bide in my dreams.
 
Chorus:
Pic -ture you up -on my knee just tea for two and two for tea,
Just me for you and you for me a -lone.
No -bod -y near us to see us or hear us, No friends or re -la -tions on week end va -ca -tions,
We won't have it known, dear, that we own a tel -e -phone, dear,
Day will break and you'll a -wake and start to bake a sug -ar cake
For me to take far all the boys to see.
We will raise a fam -i -ly, A boy for you, A girl for me,
Oh can't you see how hap -py we would be?
