So that guy married a chick instead of the guy singing the song? Awful!

Oh, how I wish I could share the hilarious scenario that that video made pop into my head based on who the characters sort of looked like...

LOL

Did the writer of these lyrics assume we'd be sympathetic to this guy's infantile narcissism?

Girl, I heard you're getting married
Girl, I heard you're getting married
This time you're really sure
And this is the end
They say you really mean it
This guy's the one that makes you feel
So safe, so sane and so secure
And baby if he loves you more than me
And baby if he loves you more than me
Maybe it's the best thing
Maybe it's the best thing for you
But it's the worst that could happen to me.
I'm never gettin' married, never gettin' married
You know that's not my scene
But a girl like you needs to be married
I've known all along you couldn't live forever
in between.
And baby if he loves you more than me
And baby if he loves you more than me
Maybe it's the best thing
Maybe it's the best thing for you
But it's the worst that could happen to me.
And girl I don't really blame you
For having a dream of your own
Hey girl I don't really blame you
A woman like you needs a house and a home.
Baby if he really loves you more than me
Maybe it's the best thing
Maybe it's the best thing for you
But it's the worst that could happen to me.
Oh girl don't wanna get married
Girl I'm never, never gonna marry
Oh it's the worst thing that could happen
Oh girl.....

So, it's not going quite as well as expected there in Cincy, eh?

Oh, girl, don't wanna get married
Girl, I'm never, never gonna marry, no no
No, it's the worst that could happen
The worst that could happen
Oh, girl, the worst that could happen

When i wake up yeah i know i'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you
When i go out yeah i know i'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you

If i get drunk yes i know i'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you
And if i haver yeah i know i'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's havering to you

But i would walk 500 miles
And i would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 5,000 miles
To fall down at your door

When i'm working yes i know i'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's working hard for you
And when the money comes in for the work i'll do
I'll pass almost every penny on to you

When i come home yeah i know i'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you
And if i grow old well i know i'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you

But i would walk 500 miles
And i would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 5,000 miles
To fall down at your door

When i'm lonely well i know i'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man whose lonely without you
When i'm dreaming well i know i'm gonna dream
I'm gonna dream about the time when i'm with you.

When i go out yeah i know i'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you
When i come home yes i know i'm gonna be,
I'm gonna, be the man who comes back home with you
I'm gonna be the man who's coming home with you

But i would walk 500 miles
And i would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 5,000 miles
To fall down at your door

But i would walk 500 miles
And i would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 5,000 miles
To fall down at your door

I thought CGI animations made Althouse sick.

Althouse you tease! If you're actually engaged, show us the ring and tell us the date. Unless you have both, it's not really an engagement.
