"Somebody call the situation room because things are about to get hot," President Obama told his First Lady

In honor of their last Valentine’s Day in the White House, Barack and Michelle Obama exchanged love messages to each other on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday.

Michelle called in to surprise her husband, who was making his first in-studio appearance on the show, with a sweet Valentine poem:

“Roses are red, violets are blue,
you are the president and I am your boo.”

The crowd – and the president – erupted in laughter and Michelle continued, “I wrote that while I was doing 100 push-ups this morning. You know, it gets the creative juices flowing.”

“You should try it, Ellen,” she joked. “But really, you’re the only person who I’d share my husband with on Valentine’s Day.”

“And Barack, I know there’s a See’s Candies out there so, bring me something chocolatey back, you know what you need to do.”

Luckily Barack had some romantic words prepared for his First Lady. Ellen set the mood with roses and music as the president delivered his message to Michelle:

“Somebody call the situation room because things are about to get hot. Michelle, this Valentine’s Day, I’m going to treat you right. I’m going to make you some zucchini bread. Then I’ll spread out some veggies on a plate, just the way you like them. Then I’m going to give you a massage while you watch Ellen’s Design Challenge on HGTV,” he said, looking confused as he apparently read from a teleprompter. “Because I love you so much, I Obamacare about you more than you even know. That’s right, Obama cares!”

“But Michelle, I’ve made a lot of great decisions as president, the best decision I’ve ever made was choosing you,” he continued. “Thanks for putting up with me, I love you.”

In case you couldn’t gather from this adorable exchange, the Obamas’ 23-year marriage is solid as a rock. So solid in fact, that the president told Ellen they don’t even fight anymore. Here’s why:

“You know, after about 15 years I finally figured out that she’s always right. So then surprisingly, we just stopped fighting after that.”
