Lyrics:


Show me a girl with a dimple on her cheek

Butter melts in her mouth when she opens it to speak
Show me a girl who is acting so refined
And I'll show you a girl with one thing on her mind

So I say, "You know what?", She says "What?"
I say "What? Oh, I'm not the marrying kind
For you've got what it takes and it takes what you've got
But I'm not the marrying kind
Don't kiss me, don't claw me, don't pet me, don't paw me
I won't leave my freedom behind"

So I say, "You know what?", She says "What?"
I say "What? Oh, I'm not the marrying kind
You know what?" She says "What?" I say "What?"
"Thanks a lot, but I'm not the marrying kind
Don't kiss me, don't claw me, don't pet me, don't paw me
I won't leave my freedom behind"

So I say "You know what?" She says "What?"
I say "What? Oh, I'm not the marrying kind
I'm not, I'm not, I'm not, I'm not, now you've got just what I'm not
I'm not the marrying kind, oh, I'm not the marrying kind
Oh, I'm not the marrying kind
