Til There Was You (winter edition)

There was snow on the drive, 
But I never started shoveling.
No I never shoveled at all
Til there was you.


There was ice, on the walk,
But I never started salting.
No I never salted at all
Til there was you.


   There was slipping,
   Such terrible crashes.
   They tell me
   Legs flopping skyward and then, and then...

There was sleet on the steps
But I never started scraping
No I never scraped them at all
Til there was you.

a wonderful allusion to John and Paul, though I guess they copied it from someone else

Yeah, my wife says it's from My Fair Lady. But it was indeed the Beatles that I had in mind.

Actually, Moose, I think you and I were talking about a different song. This one was actually written for the Music Man.
