"Monogamy" as written by and Tim Kasher....
We picked out a house
We picked out a bed
We picked out a pup from the kennel and started life in full
We hung some pictures on the walls
Our nearest, dearest friends
We don't see much of them
Most nights we been staying in
Practicing the monogamy

Friday nights in autumn
Dressed in fleece for high school football
Some of our friends have sons and daughters at St. Pius
The Hannelly's already have four
Our bedrooms been less than intimate
So, I've been taking longer showers
We sleep different hours
And the weekends you're so tired
Now it's birthdays and anniversaries
Monogamy
Monogamy

We both have regrets
Those roads we never drove
But it's pointless to drown in the waters
I mean what if we had never met?
At least there's a mortgage over our heads
No, no, no. A roof's what I meant to say
So, we're stuck in a few ruts
My independence is all but shrivelled up
I guess that's just the price we pay
For monogamy
Monogamy

I tighten my tie
I zip up your dress
I check the invitation on the fridge
"Come celebrate with Tom and Kate
Ten years of wedded bliss"
Tom meets us at the door and takes our coats
Kate stays in the kitchen
I begin to say hello
She stopped in on the telephone
How do we keep up this charade?
Monogamy
Monogamy

Monogamy
Monogamy

Monogamy
Monogamy

    Lyric Correction"But it's pointless to drown in the waters"

    should read as "but it's pointless to dwell in the what ifs"

    This song is great, and i love how it has the same melody as the first song, Monogamy Overture.
