Paul Kelly – I Can't Believe We Were Married lyrics
We dance in the kitchen on Boxing Day
I held you swaying in my arms to Marvin Gaye
Our Christmas ham turned green by New Year's Eve
We weren't hungry anyway

Now sometimes we see eacdh other on the street
Maybe at a hotel or some party
We say hello then we have to go
I can't believe we were married

That we were wed
Our houses were a shambles, our love conspiracy
Your hand was always down my pants
before our guests could leave

They didn't like our drugs, our children or our dogs
The way we made it up each day
Now the kids have grown, we talk on the phone
If one of them is sick or needs some money

Our words are dry, so measured and polite
I can't believe we were married
That we were wed
Now maybe if I'm with someone you come into my mind

The one I knew with your certain little cries
You're not the only one to come rushing in
It's like a party line
Yeah sometimes we see each other on the street

Maybe at a concert or some party
We say hello talk about the show
I can't believe we were married
Yeah we say hello then we have to go

You send your regards to all my family
And the years have changed even the sound of your name
I can't believe that we were married
That we were wed
