Lyrics

I want you to ride with me on
The marriage-go-round
Side by side with me on
The marriage-go-round

Ever since you kissed me
I haven’t been the same
Get me off this roller-coaster ride
And put me on something tame

Can’t you see us there on
The marriage-go-round
Love will pay the fare
To wherever we’re bound

Say the word, I’ll reach out and catch
A ring for your finger
That’s all it’s gonna take to make
Our marriage-go-round

Can’t you see us there on
The marriage-go-round
Love will pay the fare
To wherever we’re bound

Say the word, I’ll reach out and catch
A ring for your finger
That’s all it’s gonna take to make
Our marriage-go-round
