Marilyn Monroe Lyrics

By Blood Brothers - 1995 London Cast
Take from Blood Brothers - 1995 London Cast Recording Album


once i had a husband
you know the sort of chap,
i met him at a dance
and how he came on with the chat

y' dancin'. i think you're a bleedin' cracker.
he said my eyes were deep blue pools
my skin as soft as snow

lovely.

he told me i was sexier than marilyn monroe
and we went dancing
we went dancing.
then, of course, i found
that i was six weeks overdue.

y' what!??

we got married at the registry
an' then we had a "do".

bring on the bevvies.

we all had curly salmon sandwiches
an' how the ale did flow.

cheers.

they said the bride was lovelier than marilyn monroe

and we went dancing,
yes, we went dancing.

then the baby came along
we called him

darren wayne.

then three months on i found that i was in the club again.

i married a bleedin' rabbit.

an' though i still fancied dancing
my husband wouldn't go.

get lost will y'.

with a wife he said was twice the size of marilyn monroe
no more dancing
no more dancing.
by the time i was twenty-five
i looked like forty-two.
with seven hungry mouths to feed
and one more nearly due
me husband, he walked out on me
a month or two ago

ta-ra.

for a girl they say who looks a bit like marilyn monroe
and they go dancing
they go dancing
yes, they go dancing
they go dancing.
