What a surprise

Oh what a surprise
When I looked in your eyes
You stared right back at me
Smiling so winsomely

Well I must confess
A adored your sweet dress
Was cut low at the back
Glances you did not lack

How proud I did feel
As though I'd spun the wheel
And won the jackpot as
I asked "Dance with me lass?"

Placed your hand in mine
My dear that was divine
As our eyes then did lock
And our minds ran amok

Was love at first sight
And just try as I might
There was no denying
It was love, not a fling

You nod when you heard
Me now saying each word
"Please will you marry me"
 You did of course agree
