We are so happily married
We gave up all for love
And now we are free

It's so heavenly
We wish ev'ryone to know
It's robins and roses
Whever we go, oh-oh-ooh-oh

We sacrificed
And paid the price, together
We made a vow to be the same
Forever, ever and ever

Oh, we are so happily started
And never to part, again
To be gay to the end
Mmm-mm-mmm

Yeah!

(instrumental)

I hear ya Mr. Ivory Man

Uh-huh!

'Come on ev'rybody there
Come on up ladies and gentlemen
Yow-sir

'You hear the old maestro talkin' to ya'

'Uh-huh'

'Yow-sir'

'Yas, yas, yas'

(sax)

'i can hear the Saxman talkin' to ya'

'Uh-huh'

'Yeah'

(trumpet)

'Uh-huh, now that's *Honey Bear, listen to him'

'Oh-yeah'

'Yas-yas-yas'

Oh, we are so happily married, yeah
We gave up all for love
And now we are free
Yes!

It's so heavenly
We wish ev'ryone to know
It's robins and roses
Ever-ever we go

We sacrificed and paid the price, together
We made a vow to be the same
Forever, ever and ever

Whoa, we are so happily started
And never to part, again
We'll be gay to the end
Yas!
