Transcription

The Poor Married Man.

You may talk of the joys of the sweet honey moon,
I'll a -gree they are nice while they last.
But in most every case they are over too soon and are numbered with things of the past

Chorus:
With the racket and the muss,
the trouble and the fuss.
His face all haggard and wan,
you can tell by his clothes where-ever he goes that he is a poor married man.

The trials and the trouble are sure to begin al -
though you may do what you can,
you'll wish you were out of the clatter and the din the follows the poor married man.
