Young girl says to her mom,
"How did you know that father was the one?"
Then mom just rolls her eyes
She says,
"You'll find that special guy"
But to herself she cannot lie
She says,
"I'm praying for the day I die and they bury me"

Then boy becomes a man
He finds that special one who understands
He knows 'twas meant to be
Her faults he cannot see
And now he's down on bended knee
I pledge my love eternally
Will you marry me?

Do you take this woman?
I don't!
Do you take this man?
I don't!
For the rest of your awful life
She is your lawful wedded wife
Do you take this woman?
I don't!
Do you take this man?
I don't!
Eternal agony in holy matrimony

The two now joined as one
And from this holy union comes a son
So the cycle begins again
Another fool is on his knee
Where is my alimony?
Hang yourself from the family tree
Say marry me

Do you take this woman?
I don't!
Do you take this man?
I don't!
Eternal agony in holy matrimony
Do you take this woman?
I don't!
Do you take this man?
I don't!
For the rest of your awful life
She is your lawful wedded wife

Menopause
Mid-life crisis
Moments for the rest of your life
'Til death do you part
'Til the kids leave home she is your wife June?!

Do you take this woman?
I don't!
Do you take this man?
I don't!
For the rest of your awful life
She is your lawful wedded wife
Do you take this woman?
I don't!
Do you take this man?
I don't!
Eternal agony in holy matrimony

Just look at your parents' strife
Imagine that for the rest of your life
Do you take this woman?
Indubitably I don't
