What do you do when your wife quotes your own songs back to you?

I felt pretty throaty this morning, after yesterday‘s gig and was waking very slowly. Lesley said ‘What’s that line? ‘and I wake up on a Monday morning with a smile upon my face’ Hmph.

I replied ‘What about that other line? ‘Waking every morning is such a scary thing for me!‘

Fight quote with quote! 



A young Italian musician friend has asked me to ‘check’ his English. How do I deal with:

“Every fall the cold freezes my feet,

But your warmth, I heat up to sweat my pants”

It may work in Italian but in English…… mamma mia.
