Stupid Marriage Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Court in session (oy, oy, oy!)
What do you mean 'oy oy oy,' me say court in session!
Order
My name is Judge Roughneck
And I will not tolerate any disobedience in my courtroom
Rude boy, you have been brought in front of me
And charged with smashing this woman's window
Before I sentence you
What have you got to say in your defense?
Verse 2
I was walking down the street one night
When I saw her silhouette in her bathroom light
Her way of life may be nothing to hide
With her frosted glass shattered, curtains open wide
Verse 3
Naked woman, naked man
Where did you get that nice suntan?
You live in a castle built of sand
Naked woman, naked man
Verse 4
Naked from your bath, you go naked to your bed (oh, sure?)
But I can't stop the hatred running through my head
Verse 5
Silence in court
Order
Rude boy, you have led 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 cells
What have you got to say for yourself?
Verse 6
He wanted to be something but she knows he never will
She's got him where she wanted and forgot to take her pill
And he thinks that she'll be happy when she's hanging out the nappies
If that's a happy marriage I'd prefer to be unhappy
Verse 7
Married woman, married man
Where did you get that family plan?
Mrs. Ewe and Mr. Ram
Where did you get that lovely lamb?
Verse 8
Naked woman, naked man (silence in my courtroom)
Where did you get that nice sun tan? (order in my courtroom)
Naked woman, naked man (I will have order in my coutroom)
Where did you get that nice sun tan? (hush up!)
Naked woman, naked man
Where did you get that nice sun tan? (hush up!)
Naked woman, naked man
Where did you get that nice sun tan? (hush up!)
Naked woman, naked man
Where did you get that nice sun tan? (hush up!)
Naked woman, naked man
Where did you get that nice sun tan? (order!)
Naked woman, naked man
Where did you get that nice sun tan? (order in my courtroom!)
Naked woman, naked man
Where did you get that nice sun tan?
Naked woman, naked man
Where did you get that nice sun tan? (take him away!)
