Marriage Is For Old Folks Lyrics

Artist: Nina Simone
Album: In Concert & I Put A Spell On You

Mort Shuman, Leon Carr

I love dancing
Crazy romancing
Fellas advancing constantly

Marriage is for old folks
Old folks, not for me!
One husband
One wife
Whaddya got?
Two people sentenced for life!

I love singing
Good healthy clinging
Quietly bringing on a spree

Marriage is for old folks
Cold folks!
One married he
One married she
Whaddya got?
Two people watchin' tv!

I'm not ready
to quit bein' free
And I'm not willing
to stop being me
I've gotta sing my song
Why should I belong
to some guy who says
that I'm wrong?

Doo doo dooo
de doo de doo
de-doo de-doo
doo doo doo
dooo

Cookin' dinner
Lookin' no thinner
Gray elbows and
a sudsy sea

Marriage is for old folks
Cold folks,
and it's not for me!
One husband
One wife
Whaddya got?
Two people sentenced for life!

I'm exploding
with youth and with zest
Who needs corroding
in some vulture's nest?
I've gotta fly my wings
Go places, do things
My freedom bell's really
gonna ring!

Doo doo dooo....(etc.)

I've been through years
Too many blue years
Now I want New Year's every eve

Marriage is for old folks
Marriage is for cold folks
One husband
One wife
Whaddya got?
Two people sentenced for life

Marriage is for old folks
Marriage is for cold folks
Not for me
Can't you see
Marriage ain't for me
