“I Don’t Want to Get Married (I’m Having Too Much Fun)”. 1924
I passed a church today when I heard the strains of Lohengrin
And so I wandered in, while the wedding bells were ringing choir singing
Then when all was still I could hear them when they said “I do”
That happy pair, standing there, just thrilled me thru and thru; BUT
I don’t want to get married, I’m having too much fun
I don’t want to be bothered with any certain one
Why let them get serious, I know how it would end
I’d only get a husband, but I’d lose a darn good friend
First he’s telling the world you’re the light of his young life
But you know well that light’s gone out when he says “Meet the wife.”
Now married men are nice that’s true, but not the one you’re married to
I don’t want to get married, I’m having too much fun.
In this wild age of shorter frocks
And shorter socks and shorter locks
I don’t want to get married I’m having too much fun.
