Gilbert o'Sullivan - Matrimony Songtext

Matrimony
(Raymond O'Sullivan)

I've no wish to hurry you luv, but have you seen the time
It's quarter to ten and we're supposed to be there at nine
I don't think the registrar will be very pleased
When we show up an hour late like two frozen peas

Both now facing for the first time, presently and past
Something that begins with M and ends in alas
More than not complete disaster, even from the start
What could it be - it's Matrimony

I know how you've dreamt about being walked down the aisle
But think of the money we'll save and you'll see it's worthwhile
It won't please our mums and dads, but they don't even know
Besides, if they did what's the betting, they wouldn't even go

You and me are all that matters, disregard the rest
Trust your soon to be old man, he knows what is best
Very shortly now there's going to be an answer from you
Then one from me - that's matrimony

Oh, I'm truly grateful for the little things in life
That have made me so glad
Every other hour that I spend with you
Is not in the least bit sad
Quite the opposite in fact
And if you don't believe me, here's the proof
Ask me if I, and I'll say "aye, I do"

You and me are all that matters, disregard the rest
Trust your soon to be old man, he knows what is best
Very shortly now there's going to be an answer from you
Then one from me - that's matrimony

Marriage, the joining together of the two people
For better or for worse
Till death them do part - ole!

b-side of 'Alone Again (Naturally)
