What A Marriage Is

What A Marriage Is

Take away the picture perfect wedding

Wipe your plate of big designer cake

Let those rows of fresh cut roses live on

Let’s not make that big bridal mistake

 

Keep the guest list down , in fact don’t have one

Dress in what you wore when we first met

Register all gifts to homeless children

Make them ones they won’t forget
For all the things that symbolize a wedding

Focus now on what a marriage is

The union of two souls who’ll share their bedding

As spirits that is all it means

For all the love between two human beings

Who’ve found the reason why they want to live

Together they may make or raise a family

As one they’ll have more room to give

 

Cut down on the price of matching bridesmaids

Wouldn’t it be nice to not dye shoes

No more putting men in rented clothing

Not to mention all that booze

 

Forget about the need for wedding planners

Cancel invitation printing bills
Think of what you’ll save on wedding dinners

When you marry with no frills

— Instrumental Bridge —

For all the things that symbolize a wedding

Focus now on what a marriage is

The union of two souls who’ll share their bedding

As spirits that is all it means

For all the love between two human beings

Who’ve found the reason why they want to live

Together they may make or raise a family

As one they’ll have more room to give

 

Tell all the camera men to mind their business

Send every entertainer on his way

You probably have to beg forgiveness

When you tell the preacher he can’t stay

 

For all the happiness that lives between us

And how it grows with each new day

A wedding runs the risk of making bogus

What two lovers meant to say.
