"Archie, Marry Me" as written by and Molly Rankin Alec O'hanley....
You've expressed explicitly your contempt for matrimony
You've student loans to pay and will not risk the alimony
We spend our days locked in a room content inside a bubble
And in the night time we go out and scour the streets for trouble

Hey, hey, marry me, Archie
Hey, hey, marry me, Archie

During the summer take me sailing out on the Atlantic
I won't set my sights on other seas, there is no need to panic
So honey take me by the hand and we can sign some papers
Forget the invitations, floral arrangements and bread makers

Hey, hey, marry me, Archie
Hey, hey, marry me, Archie

Too late to go out, too young to stay in
They're talking about us living in sin
Hey, hey, marry me, Archie
Hey, hey, marry me, Archie
Hey, hey, marry me, Archie
Hey, hey, A.R.C.H.I.E, hey

    Song MeaningThe singer Molly Rankin spoke about the song in an interview:

    Rankin does not write autobiographically, and while her high-school friends are pursuing marriage, picket fences and jobs with pension potential, she craves a different kind of buzz. “It’s an open assessment on the idea of marriage,” she says, when asked about the tracks Archie, Marry Me and Adult Diversion. “Archie specifically is about this thing that you become an adult and now you should get married. Unfortunately, the love that gets no attention is the wild kind of attraction that leaves you in jail together. Nobody talks about the adventurous kind of love.”
