YES DEAR! I have here an old solution For conflict resolution Not to mention domestic pollution I say 'Yes Dear!' When the situation is tense And The subject is pounds and pence To a void sitting on the fence I say 'Yes Dear!' Though I sometimes feel sure I'm right And would argue my point all night That would really seal my plight I confess Dear! So winning my point I'll eschew Won't debate 'til my face turns blue I'll admit what you say is true - More or less Dear Famous men throughout world history Could have escaped conjugal misery If they'd just given in to Her plea And said 'Yes Dear!' Julius Caesar would have stayed serene In the senate missed a nasty scene When his wife said 'your chariot needs a clean' He'd said 'Yes Dear!' Harold might have continued as king Sent William home without a thing But he paused to give his wife a ring - Said: 'I'm a bit pressed Dear! MacBeth would avoid so much strife Live out a peaceful life If he'd put off his ambitious wife With :'Give it a rest Dear!' Prince Albert made a good consort Gave Victoria his full support And nine children - a major export Said 'Jawohl I do mein best Dear!' Louis 16th got everything wrong Made his exit quite short, not so long Told his wife in a touching swan song 'Must get it off my chest Dear!' The Iron Duke was in no mood for dallies 'Let's give those French a pain in their bellies' But replied when his wife said:'You'd better wear your wellies' 'By God! Yes Dear' For myself, to fight would be absurd I think conflict is just for the birds And I know I'll always get the last words Those being 'Yes Dear!'
