Marry me a little, love me just enough
Cry but not too often, play but not too rough
Keep a tender distance, so we'll both be free
That's the way it ought to be, I'm ready, I'm ready

Marry me a little, do it with a will
Make a few demands I'm able to fulfill
Want me more than others, not exclusively
That's the way it oughta be, I'm ready, I'm ready now

You can be my best friend, I can be your right arm
We'll go through a fight or two, no harm, no harm
We'll look not too deep, we'll go not too far
We won't have to give up a thing, we'll stay who we are
Right? Okay then, I'm ready, I'm ready now

Someone marry me a little, love me just enough
Warm and sweet and easy, just the simple stuff
Keep a tender distance so we'll both be free
That's the way it oughta be, I'm ready, I'm ready

Marry me a little, body, heart and soul
Passionate as hell but always in control
Want me first and foremost, keep me company
That's the way it oughta be, I'm ready, I'm ready now

Oh, how gently we'll talk, oh, how softly we'll treed
All the stings, the ugly things, we'll keep unsaid
We'll build a cocoon of love and respect
You promise whatever you like, I'll never collect
Right? Okay then, I'm ready, I'm ready now
Someone I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready now
