Lyrics (Tevye:)
DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
DO I WHAT?
(Tevye:)
DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
DO I LOVE YOU?!
WITH OUR DAUGHTERS
GETTING MARRIED
AND THIS TROUBLE
IN THE TOWN,
YOU'RE UPSET,
YOU'RE WORN OUT,
GO INSIDE,
GO LIE DOWN.
MAYBE
IT'S INDIGESTION.
(Tevye - spoken):
GOLDE,
I'M ASKING YOU
A QUESTION
(sung):
DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
YOU'RE A FOOL!
(Tevye - spoken):
I KNOW --
(sung):
BUT DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
DO I LOVE YOU?
(Tevye - spoken):
WELL?
(Golde - sung):
FOR TWENTY-FIVE YEARS
I'VE WASHED YOUR CLOTHES,
COOKED YOUR MEALS,
CLEANED YOUR HOUSE,
GIVEN YOU CHILDREN,
MILKED THE COW.
AFTER TWENTY-FIVE YEARS,
WHY TALK ABOUT LOVE
RIGHT NOW?
(Tevye - spoken):
GOLDE,
(sung):
THE FIRST TIME I MET YOU
WAS ON OUR WEDDING DAY.
I WAS SCARED.
(Golde:)
I WAS SHY.
(Tevye:)
I WAS NERVOUS.
(Golde:)
SO WAS I.
(Tevye:)
BUT MY FATHER
AND MY MOTHER
SAID WE'D LEARN
TO LOVE EACH OTHER,
AND NOW I'M ASKING,
(spoken):
GOLDE,
(sung):
DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
I'M YOUR WIFE.
(Tevye - spoken):
I KNOW,
(sung):
BUT DO YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
DO I LOVE HIM?
(Tevye - spoken):
WELL?
(Golde - sung):
FOR TWENTY-FIVE YEARS
I'VE LIVED WITH HIM,
FOUGHT WITH HIM,
STARVED WITH HIM,
TWENTY-FIVE YEARS
MY BED IS HIS.
IF THAT'S NOT LOVE,
WHAT IS?
(Tevye:)
THEN YOU LOVE ME?
(Golde:)
I SUPPOSE I DO.
(Tevye:)
AND I SUPPOSE I LOVE YOU TOO.
(both:)
IT DOESN'T
CHANGE A THING,
BUT EVEN SO,
AFTER TWENTY-FIVE YEARS
IT'S NICE TO KNOW.

Lyrics BLESS THIS DAY,
PINNACLE OF LIFE,
HUSBAND JOINED TO WIFE.
THE HEART LEAPS UP
TO BEHOLD
THIS GOLDEN DAY.

TODAY IS FOR AMY,
AMY, I GIVE YOU
THE REST OF MY LIFE.
TO CHERISH
AND TO KEEP YOU,
TO HONOR YOU
FOREVER,
TODAY IS FOR AMY,
MY HAPPILY
SOON-TO-BE WIFE.

PARDON ME,
IS EV'RYBODY THERE?
BECAUSE
IF EV'RYBODY'S THERE,
I WANT TO THANK YOU ALL
FOR COMING TO THE WEDDING.
I'D APPRECIATE YOUR GOING
EVEN MORE,
I MEAN,
YOU MUST HAVE LOTS
OF BETTER THINGS TO DO
AND NOT A WORD OF IT
TO PAUL.
REMEMBER PAUL?
YOU KNOW,
THE MAN
I'M GONNA MARRY,
BUT I'M NOT
BECAUSE I WOULDN'T
RUIN ANYONE AS WONDERFUL
AS HE IS
BUT I THANK YOU ALL
FOR THE GIFTS A
AND THE FLOWERS.
THANK YOU ALL,
NOW IT'S BACK
TO THE SHOWERS.
DON'T TELL PAUL,
BUT I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED TODAY.

BLESS THIS DAY,
TRAGEDY OF LIFE,
HUSBAND YOKED TO WIFE.
THE HEART SINKS DOWN
AND FEELS DEAD
THIS DREADFUL DAY.

LISTEN EV'RYBODY,
LOOK,
I DON'T KNOW
WHAT YOU'RE WAITING FOR.
A WEDDING?
WHAT'S A WEDDING?
IT'S A PREHISTORIC RITUAL
WHERE EV'RYBODY PROMISES
FIDELITY FOREVER
WHICH IS MAYBE
THE MOST HORRIFYING WORD
I EVER HEARD,
AND WHICH IS FOLLOWED
BY A HONEYMOON
WHERE SUDDENLY
HE'LL REALIZE
HE'S SADDLED
WITH A NUT
AND WANNA KILL ME
WHICH HE SHOULD,
SO LISTEN,
THANKS A BUNCH,
BUT I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED,
GO HAVE LUNCH
'CAUSE I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED,
YOU'VE BEEN GRAND,
BUT I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED,
DON'T JUST STAND THERE,
I'M NOT GETTING MARRIED,
AND DON'T TELL PAUL,
BUT I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED TODAY!

GO!
CAN'T YOU GO?
WHY IS NOBODY LISTENING?
GOOD BYE!
GO AND CRY
AT ANOTHER PERSON'S WAKE.
IF YOU'RE QUICK,
FOR A KICK,
YOU COULD PICK UP
A CHRISTENING,
BUT PLEASE,
ON MY KNEES,
THERE'S A HUMAN LIFE
AT STAKE.

LISTEN, EV'RYBODY,
I'M AFRAID
YOU DIDN'T HEAR,
OR DO YOU WANT TO SEE
A CRAZY LADY
FALL APART
IN FRONT OF YOU?
IT ISN'T ONLY PAUL
WHO WILL BE
RUINING HIS LIFE,
YOU KNOW,
WE'LL BOTH OF US
BE LOSING OUR IDENTITIES.
I TELEPHONED MY ANALYST
ABOUT IT
AND HE SAID
TO SEE HIM MONDAY,
BUT BY MONDAY
I'LL BE FLOATING
IN THE HUDSON
WITH THE OTHER GARBAGE.
I'M NOT WELL,
SO I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED.
YOU'VE BEEN SWELL,
BUT I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED.
CLEAR THE HALL
'CAUSE I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED.
THANK YOU ALL,
BUT I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED,
AND DON'T TELL PAUL,
BUT I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED TODAY.

BLESS THIS BRIDE,
TOTALLY INSANE,
SLIPPING DOWN THE DRAIN,
AND BLESS THIS DAY
IN OUR HEARTS,
AS IT STARTS TO RAIN.

GO!
CAN'T YOU GO?
LOOK,
YOU KNOW
I ADORE YOU ALL,
BUT WHY WATCH ME DIE
LIKE ELIZA ON THE ICE?
LOOK,
PERHAPS I'LL COLLAPSE
IN THE APSE
RIGHT BEFORE YOU ALL,
SO TAKE BACK THE CAKE,
BURN THE SHOES
AND BOIL THE RICE.

LOOK,
I DIDN'T WANT
TO HAVE TO TELL YOU,
BUT I MAY BE COMING DOWN
WITH HEPATITIS
AND I THINK
I'M GONNA FAINT,
SO IF YOU WANNA
SEE ME FAINT,
I'LL DO IT HAPPILY,
BUT WOULDN'T IT
BE FUNNIER
TO GO
AND WATCH A FUNERAL?
SO THANK YOU
FOR THE TWENTY SEVEN
DINNER PLATES
AND THIRTY SEVEN
BUTTER KNIVES
AND FORTY SEVEN
PAPER WEIGHTS
AND FIFTY SEVEN
CANDLE HOLDERS...
I AM NOT
GETTING MARRIED...
SOFTLY SAID:
BUT I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED...
WITH THIS RING
STILL I'M NOT
GETTING MARRIED...
I THEE WED.
SEE,
I'M NOT GETTING MARRIED.
LET US PRAY,
AND WE'RE NOTWE ARE
GETTING MARRIED TODAY!

Lyrics [verse 1]:
THE DAY I MET YOU
MY HEART SPOKE TO ME.
IT SAID TO LOVE YOU
TO ETERNITY.
NOT KNOWING
THAT YOU
WERE ANOTHER'S BRIDE,
I VOWED I'D ALWAYS BE
CLOSE BY YOUR SIDE.

[Chorus]:
YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU
AND I ALWAYS WILL.
I KNOW YOU'RE MARRIED
BUT I LOVE YOU STILL.

[verse 2]:
YOU BROKE A HEART,
DEAR,
THAT WOULD DIE FOR YOU.
I'D GIVE THE WORLD,
DEAR,
TO BELONG TO YOU.
BUT THE GAME IS OVER,
NOW I KNOW I'VE LOST.
MY BROKEN HEART
WILL HAVE TO
PAY THE COST.

[Chorus]:
YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU
AND I ALWAYS WILL.
I KNOW YOU'RE MARRIED
BUT I LOVE YOU STILL.

YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU
AND I ALWAYS WILL.
I KNOW YOU'RE MARRIED
BUT I LOVE YOU STILL.

Lyrics WHEN I WAS A BOY
MY OTHER OFTEN SAID TO ME,
“GET MARRIED BOY
AND SEE HOW HAPPY YOU WILL BE.”
I HAVE LOOKED ALL OVER,
BUT NO GIRLIE I CAN FIND,
WHO SEEMS TO BE
JUST LIKE THE LITTLE GIRL
I HAVE IN MIND,
I WILL HAVE TO LOOK AROUND
UNTIL THE RIGHT ONE I HAVE FOUND.

I WANT A GIRL,
JUST LIKE THE GIRL
THAT MARRIED DEAR OLD DAD.
SHE WAS A PEARL
AND THE ONLY GIRL
THAT DADDY EVER HAD,
A GOOD OLD FASHIONED GIRL
WITH HEART SO TRUE,
ONE WHO LOVES NOBODY ELSE
BUT YOU,
I WANT A GIRL,
JUST LIKE THE GIRL
THAT MARRIED DEAR OLD DAD.

BY THE OLD MILL STREAM
THERE SIT A COUPLE OLD AND GRAY,
THOUGH YEARS HAVE ROLLED AWAY,
THEIR HEARTS ARE YOUNG TODAY.
MOTHER DEAR LOOKS UP AT DAD
WITH LOVE LIGHT IN HER EYE.
HE STEALS A KISS,
A FOND EMBRACE,
WHILE EV'NING BREEZES SIGH,
THEY'RE AS HAPPY AS CAN BE,
SO THAT'S THE KIND OF LOVE FOR ME.

I WANT A GIRL,
JUST LIKE THE GIRL
THAT MARRIED DEAR OLD DAD.
SHE WAS A PEARL
AND THE ONLY GIRL
THAT DADDY EVER HAD,
A GOOD OLD FASHIONED GIRL
WITH HEART SO TRUE,
ONE WHO LOVES NOBODY ELSE
BUT YOU,
I WANT A GIRL,
JUST LIKE THE GIRL
THAT MARRIED DEAR OLD DAD.

Lyrics WELL, I'VE COME HERE
TO TELL YOU FOLKS
I'M RAGGED BUT I'M RIGHT,
I'M A TRAMP
AND A ROUNDER,
I STAY OUT LATE
AT NIGHT.
A PORTERHOUSE STEAK
THREE TIMES A DAY
FOR MY BOARD,
THAT'S MORE
THAN ANY LOAFER
IN THIS BIG TOWN
CAN AFFORD.

WELL,
A BIG ELECTRIC FAN
TO KEEP ME COOL
WHEN I SLEEP,
A LITTLE BABY BOY
TO PLAY AROUND
DADDY'S FEET.
I'M A RAMBLER,
I'M A GAMBLER,
AND I LEAD
EV'RY LIFE
'CAUSE I TELL YOU FOLKS
I'M RAGGED BUT I'M RIGHT.

NOW WHEN I GOT MARRIED
I KNEW I'D SETTLE DOWN
AND BUILD
A LITTLE LOVE NEST
RIGHT HERE
IN MY HOME TOWN.
SO NOW
I'VE GOT A FAMILY,
ONE THAT
I'M PROUD OF,
I KNOW THAT
I'LL BE HAPPY
'CAUSE THEY'RE
THE ONES I LOVE.

WELL,
A BIG ELECTRIC FAN
TO KEEP ME COOL
WHEN I SLEEP,
A LITTLE BABY BOY
TO PLAY AROUND
DADDY'S FEET.
I'M A RAMBLER,
I'M A GAMBLER,
AND I LEAD
EV'RY LIFE

Lyrics IF I WERE A CARPENTER
AND YOU WERE MY LADY,
WOULD YOU MARRY ME
ANYWAY?
WOULD YOU HAVE MY BABY?
IF A TINKER
WERE MY TRADE,
WOULD YOU STILL LOVE ME?
CARRYING THE POTS
I MADE,
FOLLOWING BEHIND ME.

SAVE MY LOVE
THROUGH LONELINESS,
SAVE MY LOVE
FOR SORROW.
I'VE GIVEN YOU
MY ONLINESS,
COME AND GIVE ME
YOUR TOMORROW.

IF I WORKED MY HAND
IN WOOD,
WOULD YOU STILL LOVE ME?
ANSWER ME, BABE,
YES I WOULD,
I'D PUT YOU ABOVE ME.
IF I WERE A MILLER,
AT A MILL WHEEL
GRINDING,
WOULD YOU MISS
YOUR COLORED BOX,
YOUR SOFT SHOES
SHINING.

SAVE MY LOVE
THROUGH LONLINESS,
SAVE MY LOVE
FOR SORROW.
I'VE GIVEN YOU
MY ONLINESS,
COME AND GIVE ME
YOUR TOMORROW.

Lyrics THERE'S A MAN
WHO ALWAYS STOOD RIGHT BY ME,
TALL AND PROUD
AND GOOD
WHEN TIMES WERE BAD,
TOO MUCH HEART
IS THE ONLY FAULT THAT I SEE -
THIS SONG'S NOT FOR YOU FOLKS,
IT'S FOR MY DAD.

ALWAYS A PARTNER,
A PLAYMATE
AND A TEACHER,
READY WITH A JOKE
WHEN TIMES WERE SAD.
AND IN MY TEENS,
SOMETIMES HE WAS A PREACHER -
THIS SONG'S NOT FOR YOU FOLKS,
IT'S FOR MY DAD.

HE ALWAYS WAS A ROCK
WHEN I NEEDED ONE,
HE GAVE ME GOOD ADVICE
WHEN I NEEDED SOME.
I WANT YOU TO KNOW
THAT WHEN IT'S SAID
AND DONE,
HE'S ONE OF THE BEST FRIENDS
I EVER HAD,
I EVER HAD -
THIS SONG'S NOT FOR YOU FOLKS,
IT'S FOR MY DAD.

HE ALWAYS WAS A ROCK
WHEN I NEEDED ONE,
HE GAVE ME GOOD ADVICE
WHEN I NEEDED SOME.
I WANT YOU TO KNOW
THAT WHEN IT'S SAID
AND DONE,
HE'S ONE OF THE BEST FRIENDS
I EVER HAD,
I EVER HAD -
THIS SONG'S NOT FOR YOU FOLKS
IT'S FOR MY DAD;
OF COURSE
I LIKE YOU FOLKS,
BUT I LOVE MY DAD.

Lyrics IT'S THE
LITTLE THINGS YOU DO TOGETHER,
DO TOGETHER,
DO TOGETHER,
THAT MAKE
PERFECT RELATIONSHIPS,
THE HOBBIES
YOU PURSUE TOGETHER,
SAVINGS
YOU ACRUE TOGETHER,
LOOKS
YOU MISCONSTRUE TOGETHER,
THAT MAKE MARRIAGE A JOY.
MM-HM...
IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS
YOU SHARE TOGETHER,
SWEAR TOGETHER,
WEAR TOGETHER,
THAT MAKE
PERFECT RELATIONSHIPS,
IT'S THE CONCERTS
YOU ENJOY TOGETHER,
NEIGHBORS
YOU ANNOY TOGETHER,
CHILDREN
YOU DESTROY TOGETHER,
THAT KEEP MARRIAGE
IN TACT.

IT'S NOT SO HARD
TO BE MARRIED
WHEN TWO MANEUVER
AS ONE.
IT'S NOT SO HARD
TO BE MARRIED
AND JESUS CHRIST,
IS IT FUN!

IT'S SHARING
LITTLE WINKS TOGETHER,
DRINKS TOGETHER,
KINKS TOGETHER,
THAT MAKE MARRIAGE A JOY
IT'S BARGAINS
THAT YOU SHOP TOGETHER,
CIGARETTES
YOU STOP TOGETHER,
CLOTHING
THAT YOU SWAP TOGETHER,
THAT MAKE
PERFECT RELATIONSHIPS.
UH-HUH...
MM-HM...

IT'S NOT TALK OF GOD
AND THE DECADE AHEAD
THAT ALLOWS YOU
TO GET THROUGH THE WORST.
IT'S I DO
AND YOU DON'T
AND NOBODY SAID THAT
AND WHO BROUGHT THE SUBJECT
UP FIRST?
IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS,
THE LITTLE THINGS,
THE LITTLE THINGS,
THE LITTLE THINGS.

THE LITTLE WAYS
YOU TRY TOGETHER,
CRY TOGETHER,
LIE TOGETHER,
THAT MAKE
PERFECT RELATIONSHIPS
BECOMING A CLICHE
TOGETHER,
GROWING OLD AND GRAY
TOGETHER,
WITHERING AWAY
TOGETHER.
THAT MAKES MARRIAGE
A JOY.

IT'S NOT SO HARD
TO BE MARRIED.
IT'S MUCH
THE CLEANEST OF CRIMES.
IT'S NOT SO HARD
TO BE MARRIED.
I'VE DONE IT
THREE OR FOUR TIMES.

IT'S PEOPLE
THAT YOU HATE TOGETHER,
BAIT TOGETHER,
DATE TOGETHER,
THAT MAKE MARRIAGE
A JOY.
IT'S THINGS
LIKE USING FORCE
TOGETHER,
SHOUTING
TILL YOU'RE HOARSE
TOGETHER,
GETTING A DIVORCE
TOGETHER,
THAT MAKE
PERFECT RELATIONSHIPS.
UH-HUH...
KISS KISS...
MM-HM.

Lyrics HOW THE WORLD CAN CHANGE,
IT CAN CHANGE LIKE THAT,
DUE TO ONE LITTLE WORD:
MARRIED.
SEE A PALACE RISE
FROM A TWO ROOM FLAT,
DUE TO ONE LITTLE WORD:
MARRIED.
AND THE OLD DESPAIR
THAT WAS OFTEN THERE,
SUDDENLY CEASES TO BE.
FOR YOU WAKE ONE DAY,
LOOK AROUND AND SAY:
SOMEBODY WONDERFUL
MARRIED ME.

MARRIED.
MARRIED.

AND THE OLD DESPAIR
THAT WAS OFTEN THERE,
SUDDENLY CEASES TO BE.
FOR YOU WAKE ONE DAY,

Lyrics Male Version:
A MARRIED MAN,
A MARRIED MAN,
I THINK OF WHEN
I WAS
A MARRIED MAN,
FOR THEN I FOUND
LIFE'S PURPOSE
AND ITS PLAN,
SINCE TIME BEGAN.
A LONELY MAN,
I TOOK A WIFE,
AND ADDED LOVE
AND LAUGHTER
TO MY LIFE,
AND I KNEW THEN
THERE'S NO ONE
RICHER THAN
A MARRIED MAN.

THE JOYS,
THE WOES,
THE HAPPINESS,
WE SHARE IT ALL
WE TWO,
AND, OH,
THE WOES
SEEMED SO MUCH LESS,
AND HOW THE PLEASURES
GREW!

THE BACHELOR,
THE BACHELOR --
I'VE LIVED
HIS LIFE,
AND I'VE LIVED
WITH HER.
WELL,
LET HIM LEAD
HIS SO-CALLED
MERRY LIFE
AS BEST HE CAN,
BUT, AS FOR ME,
I'D RATHER BE
A HAPPY MAN,
CONTENTED MAN,
A MARRIED MAN.

A MARRIED MAN,
A MARRIED MAN,
HOW WONDERFUL TO BE
A MARRIED MAN.
FOR NOW I KNOW
LIFE'S PURPOSE
AND ITS PLAN,
SINCE TIME BEGAN.
A LONELY MAN,
I TOOK A WIFE,
AND ADDED LOVE
AND LAUGHTER
TO MY LIFE,
AND REALIZED
THERE'S NO ONE
RICHER THAN
A MARRIED MAN.

WITH TWO
TO SHARE
EACH HAPPINESS
AND TWO
TO BEAR
EACH WOE,
THEN, OH,
THE WOES SEEM
SO MUCH LESS,
AND HOW
THE PLEASURES GROW!

THE BACHELOR,
THE BACHELOR --
I'VE LIVED
HIS LIFE,
AND I'VE LIVED
WITH HER.
WELL,
LET HIM LEAD
HIS SO-CALLED
MERRY LIFE
AS BEST HE CAN,
BUT,
AS FOR ME,
I'D RATHER BE
A HAPPY MAN,
CONTENTED MAN,
A MARRIED MAN.

IF I COULD LIVE MY LIFE
AGAIN
I'D FOLLOW
THAT SAME PLAN,
AH, YES,
BECAUSE
WITH HER
I WAS
A HAPPY MAN,
CONTENTED MAN,
A MARRIED MAN.

Female Version:
A MARRIED MAN,
A MARRIED MAN,
HOW WONDERFUL
THAT HE'S
A MARRIED MAN!
FOR NOW HE KNOWS
LIFE'S PURPOSE
AND ITS PLAN,
SINCE TIME BEGAN.
A LONELY MAN,
HE TOOK A WIFE,
AND ADDED LOVE
AND LAUGHTER
TO HIS LIFE,
AND REALIZED
THERE'S NO ONE
RICHER THAN
A MARRIED MAN.

WITH TWO
TO SHARE
EACH HAPPINESS,
AND TWO
TO BEAR
EACH WOE,
THEN, OH,
THE WOES SEEM
SO MUCH LESS,
AND HOW
THE PLEASURES GROW!

THE BACHELOR,
THE BACHELOR --
NOW THAT'S THE LIFE
THAT OTHERS MAY PREFER
WELL, LET THEM LEAD
THAT SO-CALLED
MERRY LIFE
AS BEST THEY CAN,
BUT, AS FOR ME,
I'M GLAD
THAT HE'S
A MARRIED MAN,
AND HAPPILY
HE'S WED TO ME.

Lyrics MARRY ME,
COME ON AND MARRY ME.
WHY NOT AGREE
TO BE MY BLUSHING BRIDE?
I KNOW THE NEIGHBORHOOD
WOULD GIVE ITS CONSENT,
AND THERE'S A CUTAWAY
I'M DYING TO RENT
THE DAY YOU MARRY ME,
GIVE IN AND MARRY ME.
I REALLY LOVE YOU,
SEE?
WE CAN'T GO WRONG
THE DIAMOND IN THE STORE
I COULD PAY MONTHLY FOR.
COME ON AND MARRY ME,
MARRY ME.

MARRY ME,
SO MARRY ME,
GIVE IN AND MARRY ME.
THOUGH
YOU DON'T LOVE ME NOW,
YOU WILL IN TIME.
YOU MAY NOT KNOW IT YET
BUT I'M THE BEST YOU'LL GET.
WAKE UP AND MARRY ME,
MARRY ME,
MARRY ME.
