Lyrics

You Want to Marry Me!! (Words and Music by Alan Gillis)


Verse 1
I've got a one way ticket to trouble
No money back guarantee
Because you hit me where it hurts
And treat me like some kind of dirt
Since you got your needles in me
You give me the eye; you step on my toes
You even wag your finger underneath my nose
And when I thought we had it going oh so perfectly
You say you want to marry me
You say you want to marry me!

Verse 2
Such an idea never crossed my mind
You set me back on my heels
You've got me where you want me
With a brand on my behind
And your brake is firmly on my wheels
You weaken my defence and then you smack me in the jaw
Tell me I can chase no other women no more
And when I thought we had it going oh so perfectly
You say you want to marry me
You say you want to marry me!

Bridge
Now talking that way don't improve my disposition
The same goes for the gun at my throat
You've got the upper hand and you've made up my decision
So get my neck from out of this rope

You know I love you honey but you've got to realise
The way you're talking lately kinda took me by surprise
I thought we had it going oh so perfectly and then
You say you want to marry me
You say you want to marry me!

You say you want to marry me!
