Meet, conceive and marry
True love's a shotgun wedding
There's no time to fool around
Because you have no choices now

Flowers in the backyard
With the family gathered round
True love's a shotgun wedding
You can't plan it out

Perhaps if it was passion
And not just circumstances
That you put a little love
Into that question that you're asking

She lays a kiss upon your cheek
Her lips so full and round
True love's a shotgun wedding
Mama said "don't fool around"

I know it seems awkward
But that ain't gonna stop her
This down payment is a promise
That your love is gonna prosper

The world won't end
When you throw in the towel
True love's a shotgun wedding
With the layman writing vows

It's the right thing, boy
Put that ring around her finger
And don't you stop to worry
That the feeling won't linger

Light yourself a cigarette
While writing invitations
She knows this matrimony
Won't meet child expectations

You lay a hand upon her belly
So full and round
True love's a shotgun wedding
Mama said "don't fool around"

True love's a shotgun wedding
And you can't plan it out
