LyricsEdit

Give me the simple life
Harry and Sharon, husband and wife
A comfy little bungalow, a yellow Chevrolet
Sitting on the porch at night
Staring at the Milky Way
The Milky Way!

A guy like me could be the toast of the town
A guy like me, toasted medium brown
Hey pretty girl, do you remember old Ace
How'd you like to marry a man
How'd you like to marry a man
How'd you like to marry a man
A man, a man -- without a face?

I'm a bundle of fun, a mountain of joy
Hey pretty girl, will you marry this boy?
A bundle of fun, a mountain of joy
Hey pretty girl, will you marry this pretty boy?

You're just the man for me
Mr. and Mrs., he and she
A matching set of furniture, a shiny Frigidaire
Spinning through the countryside, sipping in the country air
Ah, the country air!

A guy like you could be the toast of the town
A guy like you, toasted medium brown
Hey pretty boy, would I remember old Ace
I'd really like to marry a man
It just so happens I could marry a man
Well, I'd really like to marry a man
A man, a man -- without a face!

You're a genuine find, a bona fide win
Lovely as Adonis underneath the skin
A genuine find, a bona fide win
Lovely as Adonis underneath
Underneath the skin!

You know I've given all the little things
That a man can ever give
Now I only wanna settle down
And live, live live!

You know I've given all the little things
That a man can ever give
Now I only wanna settle down
And live, live live!

Gimme right now (gimme gimme gimme)
Gimme right now (gimme gimme gimme)
Gimme right now (gimme gimme gimme)
Gimme right now, before I have to take it!

Gimme right now (gimme gimme gimme)
Gimme right now (gimme gimme gimme)
Gimme right now (gimme gimme gimme)
Gimme right now!

He's just the guy for me (She's just the girl for me)
Mr. and Mrs., he and she
A flagpole out in front of the house, a barbecue in back
Kids to call us Mom and Dad, it's all a man could ever ask
Could ever ask!

A guy like me could be the toast of the town
A guy like me, toasted medium brown
Hey pretty girl, do you remember old Ace
How'd you like to marry a man
How'd you like to marry a man
How'd you like to marry a man
A man, a man -- without a face?
Without a face?
Without a face?

(Reprise:)

Give us the simple life
Mr. and Mrs., husband and wife
A comfy little bungalow
A yellow Chevrolet
Sitting on the porch at night
Whiling the hours away
The hours away!

A pair like us will be the toast of the town
Star-crossed lovers on a merry-go-round
Hey pretty boy, do you remember old Ace
And how'd you like to marry a man
How'd you like to marry a man
A man, a man
Without a face!
