My Bigfoot Valentine

By Kelly Roper

You've got big feet,
But gee, you're sweet,
So let's give it a whirl,
Say you'll be my girl.
'Cause I'm a goofy guy,
But I caught your eye,
So say you'll be mine,
My bigfoot Valentine.

Mom Said It Wouldn't Last

By Kelly Roper

My mom said not to go out with you,
But I told her that she was wrong.
One trailer and three kids later,
Our love is still going strong.

You may not be the most successful mate,
But you're mine and that's all that matters.
And my figure's not holding up so well
After all those blue plate special platters.

But we still love each other, it's plain to see,
We get by in our own special way.
So here's to us and our low-rent paradise,
My darling, Happy Valentine's Day!

My Faithful Valentine

by Kelly Roper

You're a little unkempt,
And you snore like a log.
When I give you your dinner,
You gobble it like a hog.
You're hard to keep up with
When we go for a jog,
But you're the one I love
More than Paris or Prague.
So my Valentine is you,
My dear faithful dog!

There Once Was a Girl

By Kelly Roper

There once was a girl with a gleam in her eye
For a certain young man, she thought cute.
He was reluctant at best,
To hear her feelings confessed,
So she yelled, "Hey, I love you, you brute!"

There Once Was a Guy

By Kelly Roper

There once was a guy who loved a girl,
But he didn't know how to tell her.
So he gathered up his nerve
And said with some verve,
"Be mine, though I'm my mom's basement dweller."

Nerd looking for love
Wins girl way out of his league.
Guess you're stuck with me.

Too Good for Me

You may be too good for me...
I'm okay with that.

Your Special Smile

Convinces me that there is...
Spinach in your teeth.

Don't Be My Commercial Valentine

By Kelly Roper

Valentine's Day is made for stores
To sell candy, cards, and flowers.
But to take part in this corporate day,
I really can't be bothered.

I love you and you love me,
But the commercial stuff sticks in my craw.
So let's just skip the rest of the routine
And thumb our noses at all the bourgeois.

Let's Do It Right This Year

By Kelly Roper

We've been together far too long for hearts and flowers.

Come on, Valentine, let's really make each other happy this year!
