[Verse 1:]
Saturday morning jumped out of bed and put on my best suit
Got in my car and raced like a jet, all the way to you
Knocked on your door with heart in my hand
To ask you a question
Cause I know that you're an old fashioned man yeah yeah


[Bridge 1]
Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? say yes, say yes
Cause I need to know
You say I'll never get your blessing till the day I die

Tough luck my friend but the answer is no!

[Chorus:]
Why you gotta be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too
Why you gotta be so rude

I'm gonna marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Yeah no matter what you say

Marry that girl
And we'll be a family

Why you gotta be so rude

[Verse 2:]
I hate to do this, you leave no choice
I can't live without her

Love me or hate me we will be boys
Standing at that alter
Or we will run away
To another galaxy you know

You know she's in love with me
She will go anywhere I go

[Bridge 2:]
Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? say yes, say yes
Cause I need to know
You say I'll never get your blessing till the day I die

Tough luck my friend cause the answer's still no!

[Chorus:]
Why you gotta be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too
Why you gotta be so rude

I'm gonna marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Yeah no matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we'll be a family

Why you gotta be so rude?

[Bridge:]
Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? say yes, say yes
Cause I need to know

You say I'll never get your blessing till the day I die
Tough luck my friend but no still means no!

[Chorus:]
Why you gotta be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too
Why you gotta be so rude

I'm gonna marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Yeah no matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we'll be a family


Why you gotta be so rude?
Why you gotta be so rude
?

    This is a song about a guy who loves this girl and wants to marry her. So he ask the dad and the dad said no so he gets angry and believes the dad is being rude. So he keeps asking but the dad says no each time. So he basically say "Well fine! I don't need your approval. I'll just marry her and start a family rather you like it or not."

    I think this song is a love song. He wants to marry that girl but needs to get permission from her dad, but when he says "no" he is upset he loves her and wants to be with her for the rest of his life, he is heartbroken and thinks the love of his lifes father must think he is not human and is rude. In the end he marrys her because he loves her so much and wants to be a happy beautiful family.

    In the song, a guy is dating a girl. On a Saturday morning, he dresses his best and goes to the father, trying to be polite, and get the father on his side. He asks the father if he can marry his girlfriend. The father outright says absolutely not. The guy still really wants to marry the girl, so he says he will marry her anyway. The next verse is saying whether you say yes or if you say no, I am going to marry her. And you can decide to walk down the isle with her, or you can just let us go get unofficially together. He asks the dad again if he can marry his daughter, and the dad says, no, never. The next part is a repeat of what I just said, but in the music video apparently the girl is all dressed up, and so is the guy. They are in wedding clothes, implying very strongly now that they really will get married without the dad's permission, although they would like to make it official. The girl rebels, pulling away from her dad to go be with the guy, implying that yes, the girl does love the guy.

    This song is about a guy who loves a girl, and he asked her dad can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? And at the end he wins her over. I think the guy loves the girl as much as he loves her. And he has to get permission from her dad in this case the girl wants to be with the guy, and her dad kept on telling the person that wants her no and so on. And in the middle of the video.

    I think the song is about him and a girl who are very much in love. On Saturday morning he jumps out of bed and puts on his best suit. Then he goes speedy fast in his car to her dad to ask for approval for there wedding. The dad replies "No" but he is still asking and every time he asks and gets no as an answer he will say he is still going to marry her, without his approval.
