*** Stupid Marriage ***

Spoken: "Court in session! (Oi, oi, oi, oi...)
What do you mean "Oi, oi, oi"?
Me say court in session!
Order. My name is Judge Roughneck. And I will not tolerate any disobedience in my court room. Rude boy, you have been brought in front of me on charges of smashing this woman's window. Before I sentence you, what have you got to say in your defence?"

I was walking down the street one night
When I saw her sillouhette in a bathroom light
Her way of life may be nothing to hide
With the frosted glass shattered, curtains open wide.

Naked woman, naked man.
Where did you get that nice suntan?
You live in a castle built of sand.
Naked woman, naked man.

Naked from your bath you go naked to your bed
But I can't stop the hatred burning through my head.

"Silence in the court!
Order! Rude boy, you have lead me to believe that you was going out with a girl and she left you and married someone else. So you got drunk and smashed up your ex-girlfriend's property. I have come to one conclusion, that is to sentence you to five months in prison. Before they take you down to the cell, what have you got to say for yourself?"

He wanted to be something but he knows he never will
She's got him where she wanted and forgot to take her pill
And she thinks that she'll be happy when she's hanging out the nappies
If that's a happy marriage I prefer to be unhappy.

Married woman, married man.
Where did you get that family plan?
Mrs. you and Mr. I
Where did you get that family plan?
Naked woman, naked man
Where did you get that nice suntan?
...
"Take him away!"
