  • Love and marriage, love and marriage
    They go together like a horse and carriage
    This I tell you, brother
    You can't have one without the other

    Love and marriage, love and marriage
    It's an institute you can't disparage
    Ask the local gentry
    And they will say it's elementary

    Try, try, try to separate them
    It's an illusion
    Try, try, try, and you will only come
    To this conclusion

    Love and marriage, love and marriage
    Go together like a horse and carriage
    Dad was told by mother
    You can't have one, you can't have none
    You can't have one without the other

    Try, try, try to separate them
    It's an illusion
    Try, try, try, and you will only come
    To this conclusion

    Love and marriage, love and marriage
    They go together like the horse and carriage
    Dad was told by mother
    You can't have one,you can't have none
    You can't have one without the other

  • Steve Dotstar from Los Angeles, CaEver hear Jimmy Van Heusen play some of his own songs instrumentally on the piano? He gives them a great feel, sometimes putting kind of a boogie woogie beat feel to them..he cut a great album to this effect on United Artists in the 60's, thats hard to find..
  • Mercedies from Soldotna, AkThis song is awesome!! I watched every episode of the television show! Great theme song to a great show. Captured everything!
