Need a love song that's easy to sing and play on the guitar.

I want to surprise my wife by showing up in her classroom on February 14th and singing/playing a song for her. I'm very much a novice with the guitar and have a pretty awful voice, so I need to think of something that has only basic chords, not a lot of changes, and a simple tune. To make it more fun, I'd like to get her students involved (such a echoing a line or something), but their part would have to be very simple as I'll only have about five minutes to give them directions (e.g. "when you hear me sing 'I need you,' you repeat 'need you.'").
To give you a frame of reference, some of the songs I feel comfortable playing and singing are "You've Got to Hide your Love Away," "Tangled Up in Blue," "Pigs on the Wing," and "Heart of Gold," but none of those exactly fit the Valentine's day bill.
