SON IN LAW

when i saw you at the market hall
i thought you were lovely and nice
but after a few days out with you
i discovered you had your price

you want to get married
but i feel much too young
cruising and coupling all that things
anything will be dead and gone

oh, baby, don't wanna be a member of your family
oh, baby, don't wanna be your parents' son in law
oh, baby, don't wanna be the father of your kids
oh, baby


your father cleans his brand new car
at least every second day
and i bet he needs a hand
cause he's asked me to stay

your mama bought your wedding dress
your father bought a suit
i guess i'm gonna get away
although it might be rude

oh, baby, don't wanna be a member of your family
oh, baby, don't wanna be your parents' son in law
oh, baby, don't wanna be the father of your kids
oh, baby


you want to get married
but i feel much too young
cruising and coupling all that things
anything will be dead and gone

don't wanna hear sweet wedding bells
and won't wear a ring
so please get lost, it's nought for us
and shout out loud and sing

oh, baby, don't wanna be a member of your family
oh, baby, don't wanna be your parents' son in law
oh, baby, don't wanna be the father of your kids
oh, baby


oh, baby, don't wanna be a member of your family
oh, baby, don't wanna be your parents' son in law
oh, baby, don't wanna be the father of your kids
oh, baby


oh, baby, don't wanna be a member of your family
oh, baby, don't wanna be your parents' son in law
oh, baby, don't wanna be the father of your kids
oh, baby
