Today’s letter – you are my sunshine, Governor

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –

I wrote a little song for the California Supreme Court to hear when it rules on my marriage. With apologies to former Louisiana State Governor Jimmie Davis, Charles Mitchell and Johnny Cash:

He is my husband, my only husband,
He makes me happy when skies are gray.
You’ll never know how much I love him.
Please don’t take my husband away.

You can call us domestic partners,
You can call us other names,
But no matter what you do, dears,
I love him just the same.

I’ll always love him and make him happy,
And he often says the same.
It’s through marriage and only marriage,
he’s bound to love and to stay.

For my parents and my children,
There is only one word that will do:
It is marriage and only marriage.
I hope my Government does come through.

He is my husband, my only husband,
He makes me happy when skies are gray.
You’ll never know how much I love him.
Please don’t take my husband away.

Sincerely,

Share
