lyrics

Honey let’s take the day off
And go out for a ride
We can check on that house we love
With the whitewashed brick inside
The garden in the backyard
Wrap around porch, too
Updates in the kitchen
A bathroom that’s brand new

Though it’s not that big it’s just about right
For a couple of kids and a good long life

Honey don’t you see it
Picture a summer day
We can look out from this window
And watch our children play
With the dog dressed up like grandma
A smile on his face
I guess he’ll sense what we both know
That there’s no better place

Though it’s not that big it’s just about right
For a couple of kids and a good long life

Through birthdays and graduations
And maybe a wedding day
We’ll all come together here
In some old fashioned way
And when it’s time for them to find
A place to call their own
They’ll look back on what we have
And make some house their home

Though it’s not that big it’s just about right
For a couple of kids and a good long life

So tell me honey
What do you say
Do we make an offer
Do we walk away

Though it’s not that big it’s just about right
For a couple of kids and a good long life
