Marriage Chant

This song is by Greg Brown and appears on the album Covenant (2000).

Marriage is impossible marriage is dull
Your dance card is empty your plate is too full
It's something no sensible person would do
I wish I was married I wish I was married
I wish I was married to you

Marriage is unnatural marriage is hard
You rotate your tires you work in the yard
You fight about nothing every hour or two
I wish I was married I wish I was married
I wish I was married to you

The children throw fits in airports and such
They projectile vomit on aunt ruthie at lunch
And you're in-laws know just what you should do
But I wish I was married I wish I was married
I wish I was married to you

I'd like to fix you my special broth when you're sick
I'd like to fight with you when you're bein' real thick
There is no end to what I would like to do
I wish I was married I wish I was married
I wish I was married to you

I like the roll in rock and roll
And all I know is you're the sister of my soul
And we make a circle just we two
And I wish I was married I wish I was married
I wish I was married to you

The sky unpredictable mysterious the sea
Do we wish most for what never can be
It never can be I guess that's true
But I wish I was married I wish I was married
I wish I was uh huh huh to you

The grass is always greener is what they say to me
If I was your husband maybe I'd agree
I like brown grass and vows that stay true
And I wish I was married I wish I was married
I wish I was married to you to you to you mmhmm to you
