A Love Song specific to you and your spouse (or significant other, may it be human or in any other form ๐Ÿ™‚ ). Thanks, Di, for this wonderful prompt. Please check out her blog Pensitivity101

Well, I don’t know if this is about a significant other, but we always had songs we associated with our pets. This one was for my daughter’s cat, Gretchen. She lived with us for many years, and was such a character. She loved my husband better than anybody.

At night he would go into the bedroom to read and close the door. Gretchen would go to the door in the hallway, and scratch three times. He would open the door and she’d jump on the bed to snuggle with him until lights out. His nickname for her was Sweetness!

This was every night. She didn’t look kindly to anyone disrupting her routine, either. She’d give us the furry eyeball if we came in on ‘her time’.ย  Anyway, we always thought this song was her song. โค

Gretchen was an awesome cat. Sadly, she traveled over the rainbow bridge a few years ago. She was a beautiful Tortoiseshell Cat, and definitely had the Tortie โ€˜cattitudeโ€™. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey girl, whatcha doing down thereDancing alone every nightWhile I live right above you?
I can hear your music playingI can feel your body swayingOne floor below meYou don’t even know me, I love you
Oh, my darling, knock three timeOn the ceiling if you want meTwice on the pipeIf the answer is no
Oh, my sweetnessMeans you’ll meet me in the hallwayOh-oh, twice on the pipeMeans you ain’t gonna show
If you look out your window tonightPull in the string with the noteThat’s attached to my heart
Read how many times I saw youHow in my silence, I adored youAnd only in my dreams didThat wall between us come apart
Oh, my darling, knock three timesOn the ceiling if you want meMm-mm, twice on the pipeIf the answer is no
Oh, my sweetnessMeans you’ll meet me in the hallwayWhoa, twice on the pipeMeans you ain’t gonna show
Whoa, I can hear the music playingI can feel your body swayingOne floor below meYou don’t even know me, I love you
Oh, my darling, knock three timesOn the ceiling if you want meWhoa, twice on the pipeIf the answer is no(I love you, I love you, I love you)
Oh, my sweetnessMeans you’ll meet me in the hallwayMm-mm, twice on the pipe (twice on the pipe)Means you ain’t gonna show…

    • Thanks, Bee! Glad you like this one. Pets are part of the family and each have their own personalities and quirks. They make their needs known even if they don’t speak in words. โค
