Thanks, Digly.  Our last word 'pants' was the same. 

Comment by Uncle John on Saturday

Aw, James.  You are a romantic and that kind of language might help a man get lucky.  Thanks!

Comment by Diglydog on Saturday

Nice job, Uncle John.

I don't wanna marry, now go and iron my pants.

Comment by James O Lunsford on Saturday

Fine performance Uncle John like the walk down on the strings, as a Man I would probably just change last line to I don't wanna marry , just be your loving friend.

Comment by Uncle John on Saturday

I can't play half as good as Charley, but my diction is better!   I could also improve that last half line of the song.  What can you come up with?  This is how Charley wrote it:

I got somethin' to tell you when I get a chance. (x2)
I don't wanna marry, just wanna be your man.
