    Love and laughter is what I'm after!
    No more drama , no more pain, no
    more crying in the rain.

    Love and laughter is what I'm after!
    Simple pleasures and harmony!
    The smile on my face when you
    proposed to me.

    Love and laughter is what I'm after!
    Watching my children grown up
    healthy and wise.
    Seeing recognition in my grandbaby's
    eyes.

    Love and laughter is what I'm after!
    Sunshine and rain and flowers in
    bloom. Walking my dog on a summer
    afternoon.

    Love and laughter is what I'm after!
    The smell of the roses that you gave
    me when I was sick. The giggle that
    escaped when the kids learned a
    new trick!

    Love and laughter is what I'm after!
    Mother alive and well. My son hanging
    my wedding bell. He will give me away
    on my wedding day!

    Love and laughter is what I'm after!
    God has been too good to me.
    For me to see nothing but the dark
    side of life and focus on nothing
    but heartache and strife...NO
    not any more, that's not what
    my blessings are for!

    Love and laughter is what I'm after!
    Warm summer nights, us dancing
    under Tiki lights. You holding my
    hand at the movies like when we
    first met. In this life you give and
    you get.

    Love and laughter is what I'm after!
    Songs that we sing when they come
    on the radio. Riding for a long time
    with no place in particular to go.
    Sharing an ice cream cone and the
    way you do me when we are alone!

    Love and laughter is what I'm after!
    No more "Lifetime" drama's in my
    life...looking forward to being a
    Preacher's wife! Travel plans and
    a nice size rock on my hand.

    Love and laughter is what I'm after!
    And God has given me...
    just what I asked for!
