What a strange world we live in, what a shame, oh what a shame
Someone's always quarrelin', then marriage don't remain
Divorces by the thousands, is this human race insane
I always thought that marriage should be a sacred thing.

Married by the Bible, divorced by the law
Everyday there's more and more, the worst I ever saw
Things have changed, they're not the same as the days of ma and pa
They were married by the Bible, no divorce by the law.

Steps are often taken without thinking twice
And oft times a child or two's who left to pay the price
Those little hearts so innocent, they don't know who's to blame
No mom and dad to love them, what a shame, oh what a shame.

Married by the Bible, divorced by the law
Everyday there's more and more, the worst I ever saw
Things have changed, they're not the same as the days of ma and pa
They were married by the Bible, no divorce by the law.

Married by the Bible, divorced by the law
Everyday there's more and more, the worst I ever saw
Things have changed, they're not the same as the days of ma and pa
They were married by the Bible, no divorce by the law...
