Song Lyric Sunday – “Marry You”

This week’s song is doing double duty as I am using it for Song Lyric Sunday and the Three Day Lyric Challenge. I wasn’t sure I was even get it done thanks to some health issues and a significant birthday for a loved one.

Helen, of This Thing Called Life One Day At A Time, set this week’s theme as “Plan”. None of the songs that said plan in the title or lyrics really spoke to me so I went to songs that were about plans. Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” came to mind almost immediately. It is the poster child for spontaneous planning. “…looking for something dumb to do, I think I want to marry you”. Or how about “…this little chapel … we can go; no one will know”.

The funniest part of it is this song went viral as the perfect song for proposals with none better than the YouTube hit below. It is touted to be the first “Live lip-dub proposal”. It is long but hilarious, and the best video version of the song I could find. This video alone is the perfect example of a good plan.

Now, for the three-day lyric challenge. I was nominated by Barbara at Teleporting Weena. to come up with a song lyric per day for three days and nominate three people per day. Now, if I nominate you and you can’t do it, just let me know. I am way behind on this so I totally understand.

My three nominees are

  1. Helen Vahdati (I know, dirty trick but you can always work it into next Sunday and there is no set theme on this one)
  2. Felicia Denise (But you are so good at this!)
  3. Cyranny’s Cove (Can’t wait to see what you’ll do!)

I hope I have covered everything and I hope you enjoy this cute little song and video.

Lydia!

Marry You

It’s a beautiful night,
We’re looking for something dumb to do.
Hey baby,
I think I wanna marry you.
Is it the look in your eyes,
Or is it this dancing juice?
Who cares baby,
I think I wanna marry you.
Well I know this little chapel
on the boulevard we can go oh oh oh,
No one will know oh oh oh,
Oh, come on, girl.
Who cares if we’re trashed
got a pocket full of cash
we can blow oh oh oh,
Shots of patron,
And it’s on, girl.
Don’t say no, no, no, no-no;
Just say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah;
And we’ll go, go, go, go-go.
If you’re ready, like I’m ready.Cause it’s a beautiful night,
We’re looking for something dumb to do.
Hey baby,
I think I wanna marry you.Is it the look in your eyes,
Or is it this dancing juice?
Who cares baby,
I think I wanna marry you.

I’ll go get a ring let the choir bells sing like oooh,
So what you wanna do?
Let’s just run girl.

If we wake up and you wanna break up that’s cool.
No, I won’t blame you;
It was fun, girl.

Don’t say no, no, no, no-no;
Just say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah;
And we’ll go, go, go, go-go.
If you’re ready, like I’m ready.

Cause it’s a beautiful night,
We’re looking for something dumb to do.
Hey baby,
I think I wanna marry you.

Is it the look in your eyes,
Or is it this dancing juice?
Who cares baby,
I think I wanna marry you.

[x2:]
Just say I doooooo-ooo uhu,
Tell me right now baby,
Tell me right now baby, baby.

Oh, it’s a beautiful night,
We’re looking for something dumb to do.
Hey baby,
I think I wanna marry you.

Is it the look in your eyes,
Or is it this dancing juice?
Who cares baby,
I think I wanna marry you.

      1. I didn’t explain myself well, sorry 😉 I don’t want you to remove my name or the link 🙂 But I see a line across my name as if I wasn’t going to participate, and my name is checked out of the list 😛

  1. I fell in love with Bruno Mars when I heard his first album. I’ve always loved this song. I don’t love his newer music, but I will always listen to that first album and a few songs from his second. Thanks so much for sharing and for the nomination! I’m so sorry I wasn’t able to do it!
