Abstract

VERSE 1
You’re never happy until you are wed,
Soon you get married but when
The honeymoon is over
You’ll wish you were single again
Wifey goes back to her mama in Maine,
You gently murmur, boys, never again,
Once you know is enough for me,
Gee, aint I glad I am free.
But

CHORUS
You’ll do the same thing over, over again, over a
You’ll do the same thing over, over again, over a

VERSE 2
Down at the seaside you’re strolling along,
Bathing girl catches your eye;
You take her out to dinner
You buy and you buy
Dinner is over, you think you’re in right,
She gently murmurs, Sir, thank you, good night;
Stung, you say, like a bumble bee,
Never, again, boys for me.
But

CHORUS
