The Lyrics

i fought the marriage
cause she did not suit my friend, you see
i fought the marriage
cause she did not suit my friend, you see

long time friend from my home town
this woman had wore him down
she wants to keep him under lock and key
she's not willing to just let him free
for his wife, she wants to be
but i say......

i fought the marriage
but my friend still sits upon the fence
i fought the marriage
i don't mean it as a personal offense

but this damn broad always hated me
for what, i don't know
every time that we meet, she freaks
she says..."take off, you have to go"
she says..."take off, you have to go"
i say......

i fought the marraige
cause i swear i think he's lost his sense
i fought the marraige
cause i swear i think he's lost his sense

wedding comes in one more day
but i can't let it go down
all of a sudden, i see the bride come 'round
wearing that snow white gown
and i shot...i shot her down
i say......

i fought the marriage
so i had to shoot that dame, you see
i fought the marriage
so i had to shoot that dame, you see

jealousy got the better of me
wanted him for me, you see
soon, i'll kick the bucket and go to hell
but this day, i helped my buddy out
yes, this day, i helped my buddy out
and i say......

i fought the marriage
now, the state is executing me...oh, no
i fought the marriage
now, the state is executing me...oh, no

Al Bundy would have loved this "Marriage with killin'" theme to it. Well done Alvin. I think this would be Al Bundy meets Tom Bundy.
