Don't Marry Her Lyrics

Artist: The Beautiful South
Album: Blue Is The Colour

Think of you with pipe and slippers
Think of her in bed
Laying there just watching telly
Then think of me instead

I'll never grow so old and flabby
That could never be
Don't marry her, fuck me

And your love light shines like cardboard
But your work shoes are glistening
She's a PhD in "I told you so"
You've a knighthood in "I'm not listening"

She'll grab your sweaty bollocks
Then slowly raise her knee
Don't marry her, fuck me

And the Sunday sun shines down on San Francisco bay
And you realise you can't make it anyway
You have to wash the car
Take the kiddies to the park
Don't marry her, fuck me

Those lovely Sunday mornings
With breakfast brought in bed
Those blackbirds look like knitting needles
Trying to peck your head

Those birds will peck your soul out
And throw away the key
Don't marry her, fuck me

And the kitchen's always tidy
And the bathroom's always clean
She's a diploma in "just hiding things"
You've a first in "low esteem"

When your socks smell of angels
But your life smells of Brie
Don't marry her, fuck me

And the Sunday sun shines down on San Francisco bay
And you realise you can't make it anyway
You have to wash the car
Take the kiddies to the park
Don't marry her, fuck me

And the Sunday sun shines down on San Francisco bay
And you realise you can't make it anyway
You have to wash the car
Take the kiddies to the park
Don't marry her, fuck me

it is have me not fuck me!
by tash on 6/23/2008 1:43pm
it is 'fuck me' but on the radio they play the 'have me' version
by Tony on 6/23/2008 1:48pm
The original was fuck me, but had to be changed for radio play...
by D on 6/23/2008 7:35pm
John - that's just the radio edit. In the original album version, it is fuck me.
by Jeffrey Wrobel on 7/10/2008 11:40pm
Gee, John, you're a sheltered soul. The Beautiful South play music that would make a yuppie stop and listen, but their words go way over their heads (John) and their phrases cut deep. Superior songsmanship. Check out Rotterdam, 36D, and Prettiest Eyes. If you're a fan, you already have.

I've recently bumped into an ex who has been singing this to me, just found this site after looking for the lyrics. She may have a point lol
by David on 7/18/2009 4:17pm
is it a lover or a prostitute?
I think is the second, because of 'I'll never grow so old and flabby
That could never be'.

by Chris on 8/11/2009 5:01am
It is 'Fuck me', not 'Have me'.
by Marie on 8/12/2009 3:26pm
This is a brilliant song, but I have one version on my mp3 and the other version on cd which I play in car with the kids.
by alex on 9/26/2009 5:04pm

This is my life...
by beth on 10/28/2009 11:04am
i agree with callum
thats why i looked up the lyrics after i heard it!
by Lorien on 4/12/2010 4:50pm
First time Iīve listened to this song, I thought I didnīt understand it clearly, then Iīve heard it twice and understood with no doubt "fuck me".... I almost had to stop the car, īcause in this moment the cigarette I wanted to light almost felt out of my mouth, īcause my smile was to big... ;-) Really great stuff, lots of sarcasm, simply great!
by Colin on 6/7/2010 5:14pm
Heard the south singin this live in Cardiff last night. Only one word....supberb!!
by Matt on 7/26/2010 5:58am
"She'll grab your sweaty bollocks
Then slowly raise her knee"

Is that a euphemism for a low blow or just her coming on to him? Confused face.
by Jimmy on 9/23/2010 5:59pm
the f me version has a better meaning.
by AJH on 9/30/2010 5:12am
I'm lucky, in Germany you can hear F*** me in the radio.
by Al on 12/19/2010 5:56pm
I disagree with David who thinks that the original version is about a prostitute singing. I think that the original is more about a woman who sees in the guy what marriage will do to him and that he has a tendency to let it destroy him whereas the independence that they both feel in a "fuck" relationship will preserve his spirit or at least not allow him to have it destroyed as convincingly. The radio edit works on another level though. The persona becomes a girl who sees her possible b/f being ruined by entering a marriage that will become stale and conservative because his partner will just see that she has caught the fish, now she can throw away the rod and cease working on their relationship and that. similarly, he will give up. She is prepared to offer more than that and to work at their relationship.

You can hear f**k me in Croatia as well. I agree, don't merry her... you know the rest
by satirickitty on 4/16/2011 4:09pm
This song is my life anthem =)
by lmfao on 7/1/2011 12:28am
a very fitting song for you katie!!
by eeple on 10/12/2011 12:42am
"She'll grab your sweaty bollocks,
Then slowly raise her knee."

It is pretty much a classical Missionary position manouvre that both tightens the vaginal muscles and ensures minimal fumbling around and mishit entries...just sayin :)
by Nick on 11/21/2011 4:04pm
FYI it is 'Fuck me'

love it so much good song
by jade on 7/10/2012 12:58pm
love the song
by Darren on 7/23/2012 4:30pm
you are all missing the point of "GRAB YOUR SWEATY BOLLOCKS AND SLOWLY RAISE HER KNEE", it's a reference to the wife having the husband by the bollocks, and if he steps out of line, pain will follow.. the mistress is just gtelling how it is, and it wouldn't be like that with her, if he didn't marry and just fucked her he would retain his freedom... the song is a fine advert for staying single and getting a fuck buddy :-)
by Fred on 10/10/2013 4:19pm
Darren has it. It's a song sung by a (potential?) fuck buddy to a guy about to get married.
by BOB on 3/5/2014 12:23pm
the first time I listened to this song I was about 6 so yeah oh well at least I had good parents at teaching SE jk :D
