Yeah, ain’-i’ a drag… [pop!]

uh-Fifty years they’ve been marrie-ied
They can’t wait for their fifty first to roll around
Yeah, roll arou-ou-ou-ound

Thirty years they’ve been marrie-ied.
And now they’re old and happy
And they’ve settled down
Hyah-ha, hey, settled down

Uh-Twenty years they’ve been married
And they did everything, dig it, that could be done
You know they had their fu-u-un

So you, you say you wanna be married
Whoa-I’m gonna change your mi-i-i-ind, wo-ow!
That’s the good side
Here come the bad side

uh-Ten years they’ve been marrie-ied
A thousand ki-ids hungry
‘Cause their mama’s a louse
Daddy’s down at the whiskey house
That ain’t all

uh-Three years they’ve been married
They don’t get along so good
They’re tired of each other
She-e’s got another lover, yeah, ow!

So now your seventeen
uh- Runnin’ ‘round, hangin’ out
And havin’ your fun
Life for you has just begun, baby
Ain’t that a shame huh!

So you, you say you wanna be married

Hmm
You sure got a lot o’ nerve
Talkin’ that married talk ha-ha-ha, uh-oh man
oh-I’m gonna change your mi-i-i-i-ind
Ow! oh-I ain’t ready to tie myself down
oh-I ain’t ready to go on down

Oh, baby, you must be crazy

A fifty years they’ve been married,
And they can’t wait for the fifty first to roll around.
Yeah! roll around

A thirty years they’ve been married,
And now they’re old and happy and they settle down,
Settle down.

Twenty years they’ve been married,
And they did everything that could be done
You know that happened

(spoken) And then, you come along and talk about….
(sung) So you, you say you wanna be married.
I’m gonna change your mind.
(spoken) That was the good side baby……….here comes the bad side

Ten years they’ve been married
And hundred kids run around hungry
‘cause their mother’s a louse
Daddy’s down at the whiskey house
That ain’t all.

For three years they’ve been married
They don’t get along so good
They’re tired of each other, you know how that goes
She’s got another lover
Huh! Same old thing

So now you’re seventeen
Running around, hanging out…having your fun
Life for you has just begun, baby.

And then you come saying
So you…you say you wanna be married
Oh, baby, trying to put me on a chain
Ain’t that some shame
You must be losing your… sshh-hm…sweet little mind
I ain’t ready yet, baby, I ain’t ready
I’m gonna change your mind.
