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


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!

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

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

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!

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?

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!

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?

    Actually the guy who sings it's palestinian and so he's probably Muslim (idk really I need to check again) and he is talking about breaking the tradition of asking the father and getting his blessing on his head on their wedding day. But he loves her so much he is willing to break the tradition they have in order to marry her even if the father does not want him to marry her.

    It's a man having a conversation with the father of the women he loves and he's asking for his blessing but the father refuses to give it to him but the man knows how much the women loves him to and claims they will marry regardless is a really cute song I like it. I know what it's like to have a partner your parents dislike, it's so hard especially when you love them like mad an don't want to lose your partner or family.

    I really don't like this song however it means that the world is going to end okay? Okay. Please do not receive these emails anymore cause they're getting really annoying please stop sending them. I need my privacy and my good natuered lily pads for my collection. I also need to import and export that save file so it will all work out. Thank you for listening to my explanation of the Song hopefully I helped you understand how it works and how its going to exemplify me from existence. Bye!

    It's about a young man who loves a girl and tries to get her fathers blessing in a traditional way. Then reality sets in when the girls father says he'll never agree to that. So then he gets all whiney and sings about how he loves her and how he'll marry her anyway. Dad is probably right. The daughter should listen to pops.

    A man is asking a man to marry his daughter and when the father says no he still tries to marry her because he thinks it isn't fair and songs about all the ways he will marry her and what they will do and how it's unfair.
