You Don't Have To Tell Me Twice

I’ll take the rap and you can call me irresponsible
But now I’ve got to pay the price
I took the bride instead of “Punch’s Advice”
And You Don’t Have To Tell Me Twice
 
She said “Love, Honor, Cherish, nag you forever”
Now she’s got you locked up in her vice
You threw the towel in and they threw the rice
And You Don’t Have To Tell Me Twice
 
You don’t have to give me a repeat performance
I told you a thousand times
I like you better when you’re concise
And You Don’t Have To Tell Me Twice
 
You don’t have to dish about the way I dish about the way
I’m left to my own device
‘Cause dishing dolls these days is like dishing dice
And You Don’t Have To Tell Me Twice
 
I know I told you to speak up on all those days
When you said nothing, and not let us go to waste
I force myself to contradict myself
In order to avoid conforming to my own taste
 
Of all the things you told me one thing rings out loud and clear:
That life is one big sacrifice
I took your sugar, I’ll take your spice
And You Don’t Have To Tell Me Twice
 
Before I babble myself into silence
Let me tell you: I’m not expecting paradise
And I still love you, to be precise
And you don’t have to tell me
You don’t have to tell me
You Don’t Have To Tell Me Twice
