Songs about Marriage, Wedding, or Engagement
Whether you're goin' to the chapel or you've been together so long that you identify more with Peg and Al Bundy when you hear "Love and Marriage," these songs cover most every aspect of getting hitched. Tying the knot, itself, isn't so much the theme as the desire to spend every day of your life with someone else... or at least until you sober up.
Marriage is an institution shrouded in religious trappings, even though the law still recognizes common law unions and other technicalities. So, being a religious practice, it's still dictated that you can only love certain people with God's permission. But that's slowly changing, even though the basic element of love will always remain the same.
"She'll change her name today.
She'll make a promise, and I'll give her away.
Standing in the bride room just staring at her,
She asked me what I'm thinking,
I said: 'I'm not sure.'"
Dixie Cups, The
"Spring is here, th-e-e sky is blue, whoa-oh-oh
Birds all sing as if they knew
Today's the day we'll say "I do"
And we'll never be lonely anymore because we're
Goin' to the chapel
And we're gonna get ma-a-arried"
"Today I woke up thinkin' bout Elvis somewhere in Vegas, I'm not sure
How I got here or how this ring on my left hand just appeared
Outta nowhere, I gotta go, I take the chips and the Pinto and hit the road
They say what happens here stays here, all of this'll disappear
theres just one little problem
I don't even know my last name"
"Cause it's a beautiful night,
We're looking for something dumb to do.
I think I wanna marry you."
"Can marry your daughter
And make her my wife
I want her to be the only girl that I love for the rest of my life
And give her the best of me 'till the day that I die, yeah
I'm gonna marry your princess
And make her my queen"
"I came to see her daddy
For a sit down man to man
It wasn't any secret
I'd be asking for her hand"
"She's got her pretty little bare feet hangin' out the window
And they're headin up to Vegas tonight
How could 18 years just up'n walk away?
Our little pony-tail girl grown up to be a woman
Now she's gone in the blink of an eye"
"Sharing horizons that are new to us
Watching the signs along the way
Talkin' it over, just the two of us
Workin' together day to day, together, together
And when the evening comes, we smile
So much of life ahead
We'll find a place where there's room to grow
And yes, we've just begun"
Little Big Town
"Welcome to the family
Hope you have a real good life
With my little sister
Yeah, she'll make a real good wife"
"So now I've finally got the courage
Just ask you baby ooh
Will you, will you
Will you marry me, boy?"
