MAT-RI-MONY From the Broadway revue "Mrs. Wilson, That's All" (1907) (William J. McKenna) May Irwin - 1907 Life ain't worth livin' said Lucy McTate You can see trouble all over my face One year ago all this sorrow began When I got married to a lazy man Every morning about half-past-six My husband wakes me with a few hard kicks I have to make the fire or I don't get fed While he eats his breakfast as he lays in bed M-a-t, r-i, m-o-n-y That's a high-tone name for trouble You pronounce it with a sigh What causes all the mis'ry in this land If you wanta find out, ask any married man And he'll say "M-a-t, r-i, m-o-n-y" Now friends I'll give you some real good advice This matrimony may be very nice Folks all say marriage is simply sublime But I'll take single life most ev'ry time Once I was positively single and it Now I am negatively douvble-nix Within my flat I wore the cleanest shorts an' that Until I drew a king that beat the whole blamed pack M-a-t, r-i, m-o-n-y That's a high-tone name for trouble You pronounce it with a sigh What causes all the mis'ry in this land If you wanta find out, ask any married man And he'll say "M-a-t, r-i, m-o-n-y" (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2005)
