“I Got You Babe”

Mummy woke up this morning and started singing to me so we thought we’d share this. Sing along with us to the tune of “I Got You Babe” (Sonny & Cher)

[MAY:] They say I’m wrong and I don’t know
I won’t find out until it’s too late
[DARCY:] Well I don’t know if all that’s true
‘Cause you got me, and baby I got you[MAY:] Babe
[BOTH:] I got you babe, I got you babe[MAY:] They say our love won’t last that long 
Before too long, I would have let you go[DARCY:] I guess they’re wrong, and they don’t know
But at least I’m sure of all the things we got[MAY:] Babe
[BOTH:] I got you babe I got you babe[MAY:] I got flowers in the spring [DARCY:] I got you to hold my lead[MAY:] And when I’m sad, you’re a clown
[DARCY:] And if I get scared, you’re always aroundIMG_4384[MAY:] So let them say your hair’s too long
‘Cause I don’t care, with you I can’t go wrong[MAY:] Then put your little paw in mine
There ain’t no hill or mountain we can’t climb[MAY:] Babe
[BOTH:] I got you babe I got you babe[DARCY:] I got you to hold my lead 
[MAY:] I got you to understand[DARCY:] I got you to walk with me
[MAY:] I got you to talk to me[MAY:] I got you to kiss goodnightIMG_2700[DARCY:] I got you to hold me tight [MAY:] I got you, I won’t let go[DARCY:] I got you to love me so[BOTH:] I got you babe I got you babe
I got you babe

I got you babe 

I got you babeIMG_2567May’s comment: This is a song I always thought to have at my wedding, well, not appropriate anymore as “we” won’t be “young” so thought I’ll use this to celebrate our 6th GOTCHA DAY! 🙂

This is the fur ball that walked into my home and my life six years ago today.On that day, Sasha was on hand to help me welcome Darcy to her new home. I had only just met Sasha a week before.  Both of them have changed my life for the better in so many ways.
