Music on Stage

Bruce Springsteen – I wanna marry you

I see you walking, baby, down the street
pushing that baby carriage at your feet
I see the lonely ribbon in your hair
tell me I am the man for whom you put it there

You never smile girl, you never speak
you just walk on by, darlin’ week after week
raising two kids alone in this mixed up world
must be a lonely life for a working girl

Little girl, I wanna marry you, oh yeah
little girl, I wanna marry you, yes I do
little girl, I wanna marry you

Now honey, I don’t wanna clip your wings
but a time comes when two people
should think of these things
having a home and a family
facing up to their responsibilities
they say in the end true love prevails
but in the end true love can’t be no fairytale
to say I’ll make your dreams come true would be wrong
but maybe, darlin’, I could help them along

My daddy said right before he died
that true, true love was just a lie
he went to his grave a broken heart
an unfulfilled life, makes a man hard, oh, darlin’

There’s something happy and there’s something sad
‘bout wanting somebody, oh so bad
I wear my love darlin’, without shame
I’d be proud if you would wear my name
