lyrics

VERSE 1:
Jimmy and Lois stood at the altar in 1946.
It was Halloween, but it was warm outside
When they made their promises.
Money was tight, but with the end of the war
There were plenty of planes to rebuild.
So they scrimped and they saved every penny that they made
But they never missed a meal.

CHORUS:
So here's to them and the love that they shared
It's love that's seen them through
'Cause if they'd have given up, then I'd have never known love
'Cause I'd have never known you.

VERSE 2:
Well before too long two little boys came along
And there were four mouths to feed
And that hobby shop never really took off
But it sure did meet their needs
Then Jimmy turned 50 in '74
With Lois still by his side
Well she loved genealogy like he loved model planes
And they both loved their lives.

CHORUS:
So here's to them and the love that they shared
It's love that's seen them through
'Cause if they'd have given up, then I'd have never known love
'Cause I'd have never known you.

VERSE 3:
Well sixty years goes by in a flash, and here we are today.
It's just you and me and your whole family tree
And it's time to celebrate.

CHORUS:
So here's to them and the love that they shared
It's love that's seen them through
'Cause if they'd have given up, then I'd have never known love
'Cause I'd have never known you.
