  • Song Lyrics:
    And the man keeps sayin', "Do you take this woman
    to be your awful wedded wife?" heh, heh

    And then I started thinkin' about no more winkin'
    at the pretty little gals a-boppin' by.
    No more dancin' and new romancin'
    Lord, it made me want to sit down and cry.
    Aw, no pool shootin' and a rootin' and a-tootin'
    with the boys if I take you for my wife.
    I can't go no place, I gotta look at your face
    for the rest of my doggone life.
    This is it

    Ah, honey, what am I doin' here in the first place?
    You knooooooow I don't go for this marriage bit
    I was only kiddin'. hahahahahahaha
    And theres your daddy sittin' over there with a shotgun
    layin' across his lap
    and a big smile on his ugly face.
    And the man keeps sayin', "Are you gonna take this woman or ain'tcha?"

    Well, then I started thinkin' about no more winkin'
    at the pretty little gals a-boppin' by.
    No more dancin' and new romancin'
    Lord, it made me want to sit down and cry.
    Aw, no pool shootin and a rootin' and a-tootin'
    with the boys if I take you for my wife.
    I can't go no place, I gotta look at your face
    for the rest of my doggone life.
    This is it

    Honey, what's this jazz about love, honor, and obey?
    That cat's talkin' to me, heheheh
    And look at all these good lookin' bride maids standin' around, heh
    Hellllllo, baaaby!
    And the man in charge keeps sayin', "Looky here,
    do you take this woman or don'tcha?"

    Well, then I started thinkin' about no more winkin'
    at the pretty little gals a-boppin' by.
    No more dancin' and new romancin'
    Lord, it made me want to sit down and cry.
    Aw, no pool shootin' and a rootin' and a-tootin'
    with the boys if I take you for my wife.
    I can't go no place, I gotta look at your face
    for the rest of my doggone life.
    This is it
