I done my honky tonkin' round and had a lot of fun
But somehow I can't understand how one and one makes one
I like to cuddle near you and listen to you lie
But get that marryin' out of your head I'll be a bachelor till I die

Now if you want a help mate you're just wasting lots of time
Cause I'm afraid of church bells how they scare me when they chime
I've seen those married people just up and say goodbye
So keep that marryin' out of your head I'll be a bachelor till I die

This freedom's mighty precious in this land of liberty
I've seen what matrimony done to better men than me
I don't mind keepin' comp'ny with the apple of my eye
But keep that marryin' out of your head I'll be a bachelor till I die
