Why did you marry?
Oh, why did you marry?
You could have been an actress
You could have been a doctor
You could have been somebody
People wish they knew

Why did you marry?
Oh, why did you marry?
Did no one ever tell you
To fly to the moon,
To not get tied down too soon,
To shop around?

Oh all the places you'd go
All the folks you'd meet
They'd say, "Honey, you've still got it!"
But no, that was twenty-some-odd years ago
Today you're just getting by
You're just getting by

Why did you marry?
Oh, why did you marry?
Did somebody convince you
Through sermons and psalms
That you could be happy
Just tagging along

Oh all the places you'd go
All the folks you'd meet
They'd say, "Honey, thank God you didn't
End up like all of the other
Girls on your street"
They're just getting by
They're just getting by

But I think that I know
Yes I know why you married
It's just like in the movies
The novels and plays
Where no one ever says,
"Thanks Cary Grant,
But I think I'll just get my own place"

All the places you'd go
All the folks you'd meet
They'd say, "Honey, you've still got it"
And guess what, we've all got it too
So pull up a seat
We're just getting by
We're just getting by
