MARRIED I CAN ALWAYS GET (Gordon Jenkins) as recorded by Patti Page with Gordon Jenkins & his Orchestra 1956 It's not my cup of tea, They won´t throw rice at me For a while yet! I have no plans to wed, Be resolutely led Down the aisle yet, With a smile yet! When the organ plays "oh promise me", I will be an absentee! For the none-such-used to be fancy free, They can throw old shoes but they won´t hit me, Not me! I wanna dance, Until the darkest heavens turn grey, Until the dawn strolls in with the day; Then I´ll say, "Don´t let the band get away!" But matrimony, I'm not ready yet, Married I can always get! It's not for me With all its smug convivial joys, That ever constant smashing of toys Wrecks your poise, While hubby is out with the boys! No wedding gown for this silhouette, Married I can always get! I'll live the life that I'm used to, I'll get a ring when I choose to, Because by now I have found That the nicest rings are on the merry-go-round! I'll be blase With any man whose motives are base, I'll keep each wily wolf in his place, Till the chase Finally ends in embrace! But as for wedlock, unlock me my pet, Married I can always get! You feel an urge, With certain parts of love you're inspired, But when you try to find your desire, He's retired; Business men are quite easily tired! The very fact just gets me upset, Married I can always get! I wanna find An honest swain who'll gaily pursue, And when he drinks champagne from my shoe, That's my cue To act like a shy ingénue! As we croon a lovers' duet, Married I can always get! I'll go the way that the wind blows, Along the path that is primrose. I have my plan all rehearsed, I will kiss anybody who will kiss me first! I'll take a cruise Into a more adventurous clime, And if the captain's still in his prime, He will find You don't have to sail all the time! I wanna stick to romantic roulette, Married I can always get, But not yet, But not yet, But not yet, yet, yet, Married I can always get! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2017)
