Lyrics
Yes, Dear [Joe Kretschmer, Sept. 2001]

Well, I understand you went and got yourself a wife.
I hope you realize how much this is gonna change your life.
And for what it's worth, I've got a little advice for you
Just remember those magic words--not three little words, but two.

Yeah, you can say "I love you" and she'll answer with a smile.
But "I love you" ain't gonna cut it after you've been married for a while.
The words you need to remember are so simple and sincere,
The two little words that'll serve you best, I'm talkin' about: "Yes, Dear."

[chorus]
Yes, Dear. Yes, Dear. That's all you gotta say.
Yes, Dear. Why yes, Dear. You gonna use it every day.
At times when that's all you got, it's gonna save your you-know-what.
Just sit back, smile and say: "Yes, Dear."

Now I've been married for a good long time, so I know what I'm talking about.
You can argue with her 'til you're blue in the face; you can jump up and down and shout.
But you're never gonna win, you'll just cave in, falling like an autumn leaf.
While just a simple "Yes, Dear" could have spared you all that grief.

[bridge]
Yes, there are many pretty words you can whisper to your mate.
But in the long run there's only two she's gonna appreciate?[chorus: "And those are?"]

[Chorus - 3rd line: When war clouds form inside your lodge, just think of all the trouble you'll dodge?]
