Gilbert O’Sullivan - Matrimony
Tekst en muziek: Gilbert O’Sullivan
(1971)






I’ve no wish to hurry you, love
But have you seen the time
It’s quarter to ten and we’re supposed
To be there at nine
I don’t think the registrar
Will be very pleased
When we show up an hour late
Like two frozen peas



Both now facing for the first time
Presently and past
Something that begins with ‘M’
And ends in ‘alas’
More than not complete disaster
Even form the start
What could it be
It’s matrimony



I know how you’ve dreamt about
Being walked down the aisle
But think of the money we’ll save
And you’ll see it’s worthwhile
It won’t please our mums and dads
But they don’t even know
Besides, if they did, what’s the betting
They wouldn’t even go



You and me are all that matters
Disregard the rest
Trust your soon to be your man
He knows what is best
Very shortly now there’s gonna be
An answer from you
Then one from me
That’s matrimony



Oh, I’m truly grateful for the little things in life
That have made me so glad
Every other hour that I spend with you
Is not in the least bit sad
Quite the opposite in fact
And if you don’t believe me
Here’s the proof
Ask me if I and I’ll say “Aye, I do”



You and me are all that matters
Disregard the rest
Trust your soon to be your man
He knows what is best
Very shortly now there’s gonna be
An answer from you
Then one from me
That’s matrimony



Marriage
Joining together two people
For better or for worse
Till death them do part
Oh yeah
