lyrics

Well I love to take her shopping in the capitals of the world
These are the things I do on earth
In Geneva I buy diamonds and in Brussels I buy pearls
These are the things I do on earth
Why the money is no object when your hobby is romance
These are the things I do on earth
So I will treat her to a night on Pennsylvania Avenue
These are the things I do on earth

These are the things I do on earth
That make me happy
So darn happy
That it almost seems absurd
To be me

Every minute that I’m with her I make sure she feels adored
These are the things I do on earth
I’ll take the presidential cabin at the foot of Mount Rushmore
With all the secret service perks
Then we’ll amble through Augusta ‘neath the Eisenhower pine
These are the things I do on earth


These are the things I do on earth
That make her happy
So darn happy
That it almost seems absurd
To love her

These are things I do on earth I do on earth for you
These are things I do on earth I do on earth for you
These are things I do on earth I do on earth for you

I still write a weekly column for the Washington bachelor
Whenever patronage concerns
And if I ever run for office I will ask her to be mine
These are the things we do on earth that make us happy
So darn happy that it almost seems absurd to be free
