Men I wish I'm married to *

On billboards, posters, and movies-of-the-week,
the men I wish I'm married to
Handsome, lithe and lean, and sweet
the men I wish I'm married to
To hold one would be such a treat
the men I wish I'm married to

I see them walking on the street
the men I end up married to.
Tedious, dull and bland, and weak
the men I end up married to.
I watch them eat, poke me to sleep
the men I end up married to.
