MARRIED MAN BLUES





I GOT A RING ON MY FINGER
AND SO I CAN'T LINGER
AT THE BAR TONIGHT
THIS PLACE IS REALLY BRIMMIN'
WITH HOT SINGLE WOMEN
TO MY LEFT AND MY RIGHT
BECAUSE I CAN LOOK
BUT CANNOT TOUCH
LIFE DON'T SEEM
TO BE WORTH VERY MUCH
NOW IT AIN'T NO NEWS
I GOT THE MARRIED MAN BLUES
(HE'S GOT THE MARRIED MAN BLUES)

THERE'S A BLONDE AND BRUNETTE
WHO ARE WORKING UP A SWEAT
DANCIN' TO A SONG
WELL THERE'S A REDHEAD NEXT TO ME
WHEN SHE TURNS I GET A SEE
THAT SHE'S WEARING A THONG
TO MEET EM
WOULD BE REAL SWEET
BUT THEN I'D END UP
ON THE STREET
IF I CHOOSE I LOSE
I GOT THE MARRIED MAN BLUES

I GOT THE MARRIED MAN BLUES
YOU KNOW IT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SAY I DO
(DON'T SAY I DO)
YOU PICK ONE GIRL TO WED
AND THE REST WILL NEVER SHARE YOUR BED
NO NO NO NO NO NO

I GOT THE MARRIED MAN BLUES
YOU KNOW IT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SAY I DO
(DON'T SAY I DO)
YOU PICK THAT ONE GIRL TO WED
AND THE REST WILL NEVER SHARE YOUR BED

I'M WITH MY GOOD FRIEND BOB
WHO'S ANOTHER MARRIED SLOB
AND HE'S TRYING TO BE COOL
BUT THERE'S A GIRL WITH
TWO TORPEDOES
WHO'S WRECKIN OUR LIBIDOS
AND SHE'S MAKING US DROOL
ALL THESE GIRLS HANG
WITH YOUNG SINGLE GUYS
WHO WE'D LIKE TO SHOOT RIGHT 'TWEEN THE EYES
BUT THERE'S TOO MANY TABOOS
WE GOT THE MARRIED MAN BLUES
(THEY GOT THE MARRIED MAN BLUES)

I GOT A RING ON MY FINGER
AND SO I CAN'T LINGER
AT THE BAR TONIGHT
IT'S NOT THE BOOZE
IT'S THE WOMEN
THAT GOT MY HEAD SWIMMIN
I DON'T FEEL SO RIGHT
BECAUSE MY WIFE'S OUT OF TOWN
IT'S TIME FOR ME TO BE
HOMEWARD BOUND
I'M TAKING MY CUES
I GOT THE MARRIED MAN BLUES
(HE'S GOT THE MARRIED MAN BLUES)

(spoken)
TAKE IT HOME GIRLS

YEAH YEAH
YEAH YEAH
MARRIED MAN BLUES
YEAH YEAH
YEAH YEAH YEAH
MARRIED MAN BLUES
HE'S GOT THE MARRIED MAN BLUES
YEAH YEAH
YEAH YEAH YEAH
MARRIED MAN BLUES
YEAH YEAH
YEAH YEAH YEAH
MARRIED MAN BLUES
