The polyamorist's love song.

lyrics

You've got my heart
You've reeled me in
When we're apart
Can't wait to see you again

You brighten up
The darkest of days
Any words I find will be
Inadequate praise

You make me feel whole
You make me complete
I figured that the two of you'd eventually meet

I know we're meant to be
You and you and me


You and you and me
Could live in three part harmony
It's ABC, Do Re Mi
The Jacksons had it right, we can all agree

With a trio you can try untraditional tricks
Forget 69ing, we can try and 696
We're meant to be
You and you and me

You bring a half smile to both sides of my face
Together you and you and I can go to eighth base
Babies I can promise you I'll do you right
And I'll call you babies again
Because it sounds really weird in the plural
And I'm realizing that.
It sounds like I'm referring to actual babies.
Just to clarify, I'm not a pedophile.

Cause it's the three of us: you and you and I
We can make it if we try-y-y
My heart won't last a minute if I can't have you two in it
Got an atrium and a ventricle for each of you

Like Cerberus, the three of us are better than two
The Musketeers and Stooges did it, ladies we can too!
We're meant to be
You and you and me

Oh what can I do to make you two swoon
We could go for a date on a hot air balloon
But we'd have to take turns, because the hot air balloon
Can only hold two people at a time
So we'd have to flip a coin to see who goes up first
And leave the other behind
It's kind of like the riddle with the chicken and the fox and the grain.

I was made for you (and also you)
You were made for me (and you were, too)
So there's only one thing that we can do
And it's really only legal in Utah, baby

Well tie the double-knot and we can all be wed
And then we'll rest our heads in a triple bed
We'll all be nice and warm and we can disregard the norm and
We can do it like the Mormons, 'cept we won't be insane.

They'll pronounce us man and wives
And we can start to plan our lives
We'll fly-ii to Hawaii for our honeymoon
And you can be the little and the middle spoon

Tea for three
And two for me
Me for you
And you for you

And you,
And you
For me

Daisies, Daisies
Give me your answers, do
I'm two halves crazy
All for the love of you (and you)

It won't be a fancy thing
You'll have to share the ring
But you and you'll look sweet
Sittin' upon the seats
Of a bicycle built for three

For you and you and me
We can sail across the sea
In a love boat, crew of three
We can sail to gay Paree

Je vous aime
(tous le deux)
And I want to be with you
In a ménage à vous
Et vous et moi

A ménage à trois
à vous et vous et moi

We're meant to be
You and you and me

(And maybe him)
