Lyrics PLEASE SEND
YOUR CARDS OF SYMPATHY
ELSEWHERE,
(spoken) IT'S NOT THE END
OF LOVE --
(sung) JUST ONE AFFAIR!

I'D DO IT AGAIN,
I'D DO IT AGAIN!
IF LOVE SHOULD APPEAR
IT IS ONLY TOO CLEAR --
I'D PURSUE IT AGAIN,
AND RUE IT;
BUT THEN...
I'D DO IT AGAIN!
I'D DO IT AGAIN,
I'D DO IT AGAIN!
IF LOVE SHOULD
COME NOW,
I WOULD BREAK
EV'RY VOW,
I'D DENY IT
AGAIN,
DEFY IT,
AND THEN...
I'D TRY IT
AGAIN!

FOR THO'
I TELL MYSELF
I'VE FOUND THE CURE,
AND KNOW
THAT I'VE BEEN WEAK
AND IMMATURE,
AND STATE
MY FIRM BELIEF
THAT I AM GLAD
THAT LOVE IS BRIEF
AND WHEN IT ENDS
IT'S A RELIEF --
YOU CAN BE SURE...

I'D DO IT AGAIN,
GO THROUGH IT AGAIN!
ALTHOUGH I INSIST
THAT NEXT TIME
I'LL RESIST,
I'D SUBDUE IT;
BUT THEN...
I'D DO IT AGAIN!
THAT'S ALL
THERE IS TO IT.
WHY TRY TO
POOH POOH IT?
I'D DO IT AGAIN!

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.
