I wrote this song for my wife when proposing to her in 2010. It’s based on King Nothing by Metallica. I can’t sing but I love my wife enough to try. Oh, and in case of any confusion as to the lyrics, then her pet name is Beaver.

Wish I may
Wish I might
Have this I ask tonight
Keep you satisfied
Found true love
Found it right
You make my life all bright
Are you gratified?

Life ahead with you
Twelve great years of woo

Then here comes the day
Wish I might, wish I may
And now I ask for your hand
I hope you know what to say

Just want one thing
Bind us with a ring
Build our lives together
And we’ll get to share a name

Wear that ring, Fie Madsen
Wear that ring

Hot and sweet
Fun and leet
You make my life complete
Yeah! Keep you satisfied

Wish I might
Wish I may
Get you to always stay
Are you gratified?

Life ahead with you
Twelve great years of woo

Then here comes the day
Wish I might, wish I may
And now I ask for your hand
I hope you know what to say

Just want one thing
Bind us with a ring
Build our lives together
And we’ll get to share a name

Wear that ring, Fie Madsen
Yaoh Beaver
Oh, wear that ring

Huh!

(Spoken)
I wish I may
I wish I might
Have this girl I met one night
Give her my heart
Get hers in turn
I want it bad, so bad it burns

Careful what you wish
Careful what you say
Careful what you wish
We’ll be together
Careful what you wish
We’ll be forever

Then here comes the day
Wish I might, wish I may
And now I ask for your hand
I hope you know what to say

Just want one thing
Bind us with a ring
Build our lives together
And we’ll get to share a name

Wear that ring, Fie Madsen
Beaver

Oh you’re my Beaver
Wear that ring, Fie Madsen
Oh you’re my Beaver
My one and everything

Off to ever ever land
