I Love the Bones of You


I love the bones of you my valentine 

Why don’t we go socialise?

Celebrate Valentine’s Day

You don’t look fat in my eyes

You’ve nobody to go with

But I will be there at your side

You like a bit of meat to grab hold of?

But I’m your attractive corpse bride


I love the bones of you back, my dear

We could dance, do the Boney Maloney

Rattle and roll, I do a neat trombone

Go Italian and eat macaroni

I’m more at ease at Halloween

But we’ll go paint the town, have a scream 

Tickle my funny bone, give me a squeeze

A skeleton’s Valentine dream


Only if your heart is in it.

    Your heart was certainly in these words Joanna. Enjoy your scream.

      Went for the funny bone

        Of course, you succeeded.
