Song Description

Instead of getting married, they do a "five-year deal." At the end of that, they can decide whether to "renew." Presumes no "procreation" is involved.

Story Behind the Song

Been married three times (though this time for decades). Also have experience with contracts. Had the thought that maybe, for some folks, a "five-year deal" would be preferable to and work better than conventional marriage.

Lyrics

VERSE
This is a story about avoiding divorce
So listen up; I'm teaching a crash course
It's for those not thinking procreation
And it's a great way around a complicated situation

VERSE
Let's start out with the proposition
That most marriages die of some serious condition
But there must be a way to defeat that system
Why don't we marry experience and wisdom -- instead of us?

CHORUS
It's a five-year deal; we put it in a contract
Five years, a secret pact; no one has to know this fact
We should get to the end totally intact
Question is, will we affirm another term?

VERSE
Now I know you're thinking this is complicated
And I'm not saying this should be appreciated -- by everyone
But what could be the harm in trying something new?
It might just be the coolest thing to do

Repeat CHORUS

SOLO

VERSE
I don't know what the future holds, but it doesn't hold divorce
This new kind of together might could be a powerful force
And if it turns out she doesn't want to renew -- and I do
She can just walk away and the worst I'll be is blue

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Oh, yeah, it's a five-year deal
