I Wanna Marry You

I Wanna Marry You

I see you walking baby down the street
Pushing that baby carriage at your feet
I see that lonely ribbon in your hair
Tell me am I the man for whom you put it there

You never smile girl you never speak
You just walk on by darling week after week
Raising two kids alone in this mixed up world
Must be a lonely life for a working girl

Little girl I wanna marry you, oh yeah
Little girl I wanna marry you, yes I do
Little girl I wanna marry you

Now honey I don't wanna clip your wings
But a time comes when two people should think of these things
Having a home and a family
Facing up to their responsibilities

They say in the end true love prevails
But in the end true love can be some fairy tale
To say I'll make your dreams come true would be wrong
But maybe darling I could help them along

Little girl I wanna marry you, oh yeah
Little girl I wanna marry you, yes I do
Little girl I wanna marry you

Ohhh, my daddy said right before he died
That true true love was just a lie
He went to his grave a broken heart
An unfulfilled life girl makes a man hard

Oh darling, there's something happy and there's something sad
'Bout wanting somebody oh so bad
I wear my love darling without shame
I'd be proud if you would wear my name

Oh my girl
Ooh my girl
My girl
Oh girl, girl
Yeah
Ooh-ooh
