young girl says to her mom
"how did you know that father was the one?"
then mom just rolls her eyes
she says "you'll find that special guy"
but to herself she cannot lie
she says "i'm praying for the day i die and they bury me"

then boy become a man
and finds that special one who understands
he knows
'twas meant to be
her faults he cannot see
and now he's down on bended knee
i pledge my love eternally
will you marry me?

do you take this woman?
i don't!
do you take this man?
i don't!
for the rest of your awful life
she is your lawful wedded wife
do you take this woman?
i don't!
do you take this man?
i don't!
eternal agony
in holy matrimony

the two now joined as one
and from this holy union comes a son
and so the cycle begins again
another fool is on his knee
where is my alimony?
hang yourself from the family tree
say marry me

do you take this woman?
i don't!
do you take this man?
i don't!
eternal agony
in holy matrimony
do you take this woman?
i don't!
do you take this man?
i don't!
for the rest of your awful life
she is your lawful wedded wife

menopause
mid-life crisis
moments for the rest of your life
'til death do you part
'til the kids leave home
she is your wife
june?

do you take this woman?
i don't!
do you take this man?
i don't!
for the rest of your awful life
she is your lawful wedded wife
do you take this woman?
i don't!
do you take this man?
i don't!
eternal agony
in holy matrimony


just look at your parents strife
imagine that for the rest of your life
do you take this women?
indubitably i don't

    General CommentI was reading this book the other day about the history of mosh pits, and the Vandals get mentioned along with Kung Fu records. The author says that this is the Vandals best song, and that it "deserves to be listened to as long as punk rock is heard." It's a good song, but I really don't think it's their best one, do you? Personally, just looking at The Quickening, I think it's overshadowed by "choosing your masters" and "but then she spoke." Still a funny song though.

    General CommentHaha, I love it.
    Marriage is so expected, you know? It's just another thing people are supposed to do. Go to college, get married, and pop out children. Well, I guess this is what happens when you get married just because your supposed to.
    But even without evaluating this song, its amazing.
