i’m never getting married lyrics – rodney parker

i learned my lesson and here’s what it is,
they all want a house and a couple of kids.
and right in the middle that’s where they want me,
but i’m never gonna get married,
no, i’m never gonna get married.

i’m good for leaving, i’m good for a fight,
i’m good as gone on a sat*rday night,
i’m good for plenty but not what they need,
i’m never gonna get married,
no, i’m never gonna get married.

there’s re-decorations, there’s laundry to fold,
there’s talks over dinner, there’s lawns to be mowed,
and there’s no one alive that could care less than me,
i’m never gonna get married,
no, i’m never gonna get married.

they ask me about it, i bury their fears,
a couple more songs, a couple more years.
just ’cause they believe it, that don’t mean it’s true,
girls, i’m never going to marry you,
no, i’m never going to marry you.

so fellas, just tell ’em when they ask you whether
you’ll ever get married,
say never, not ever.
go ahead set me free, go ahead cut the tether, ’cause i
am a bachelor,
now and forever.

i’m never gonna get married,
no, i’m never gonna get married.
