If You Wanna Be Happy - Jimmy Soul

If You Wanna Be Happy

Jimmy Soul

(Frank J. Guida - C. Guida - Joseph Royster, SPQR 3305, 1963)

If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
Never make a pretty woman your wife
So, from my personal point of view
Get an ugly girl to marry you

A pretty woman makes a husband a-small
And very often causes his downfall
Soon as he marries her, then she starts
To do the things that will break his heart
But if you make an ugly woman your wife
You'll be happy for the rest of your life
An ugly woman cooks your meals on time
She always gives you peace of mind


So, if you're friends say you have no taste
Go ahead and marry anyway
So, if she's ugly, her eyes don't match
Take it from me she's a better catch
