Pleasant Little Kingdom

This song is by Stephen Sondheim.

It's a pleasant little kingdom
Full of pleasant little days
There are charities and lectures
And flowers to raise
There are amateur dramatics
And Quidditch matches
And I go to civic luncheons
When there's someone to remind me
And I study the piano
And I never look behind me

It's a merry little kingdom
Full of merry little chores
Lots of gardening and fixing
All very outdoors
In the driveway is a sports car
I shouldn't have bought

And if on occasion I think about you
I eliminate the thought

So I read a little here
And I sew a little there
And the children disappear
And the castle needs repair
And I never shed a tear
And I never turn a hair
And then!
It's a pleasant little kingdom
Full of pleasant little things
Full of scintillating dinners
With neighbouring kings
There's a castle in the country
For weekends of rest
And we entertain at parties
In the little time remaining
And we're entertained by others
And it's very entertaining

An efficient little kingdom
The dominion of the Queen
Where at any given moment
The ashtrays are clean
There are many little battles
Which never are fought

And if on occasion I think about you
I eliminate the thought

So I write another book
And I head another drive
And we take a trip we took
And the dinner guests arrive
And unless you really look
You would think we were alive
And...
God help me Sally, I've loved you all my life!
