Why did you marry Oh why did you marry You could've been an actress You could've been a doctor You could've 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 taggin 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."
Oh 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."

In Gary Numan's "Cars," the message is that cars lead to a mechanical society devoid of personal interaction. This didn't stop automakers from using it in commercials. Both Nissan and Oldsmobile have used it in ads.
