Talia Balsam is a very lucky lady.


I have the same dreams as any man -
from the Dutchman to the bayman,
from the bushman to the shaman,
to the churchman to the Klansman -

a car, a job, a solid home,
a silverfox of my very own -
and this is all I hope:

John Slattery, marry me!
Oh marry me, John Slattery!

It may not seem à propos,
but I'm not so strange, I'll have you know,
and this remains ever so:

when you're disheveled, i'm unleveled
when you're unshaven, i am raving
and rabid and depraved...

John Slattery, marry me!
Oh marry me, John Slattery!

I will drink the dregs of the day -
I will chase those cameras away.
Let's just shut the world out.

Let me pull the shades around -
I will keep you safe and sound...
Please just hear me out:

Anderson Cooper, marry me!
Victor Garber, marry me!
Oh marry me, George Clooney!
Henry Czerny, marry me!
Daniel MacIvor, marry me!
Oh marry me, John Slattery!
