Marry me a little
Love me just enough
Cry but not too often
Play but not too rough
Keep a tender distance
So we'll both be free
That's the way it ought to be
I'm ready
I'm ready

Marry me a little
Do it with a will
Make a few demands
I'm able to fulfill
Want me more than others
Not exclusively
That's the way it oughta be
I'm ready
I'm ready now

You can be my best friend
I can be your right arm
We'll go through a fight or two
No harm, no harm
We'll look not too deep
We'll go not too far
We won't have to give up a thing
We'll stay who we are
Right? ok then
I'm ready
I'm ready now

Someone marry me a little
Love me just enough
Warm and sweet and easy
Just the simple stuff
Keep a tender distance
So we'll both be free
That's the way it oughta be
I'm ready
I'm ready

Marry me a little
Body, heart, and soul
Passion
But always in control
Want me first and formost
Keep me company
That's the way it oughta be
I'm ready
I'm ready now

Oh how gently we'll talk
Oh how softly we'll tred
All the stends, the ugly things
We'll keep unsaid
We'll build a cocoon
Of love and respect
You promise whatever you like
I'll never collect
Right? ok then
I'm ready
I'm ready now
Someone
I'm ready
I'm ready
I'm ready now
