It's such a terrible shame it was only a game
Then her brothers found out seven Johnny be Goode's
We was only pretending at mummys and daddys
They totally misunderstood
Oh what a terrible plight what a terrible fight
It was too much to bear her father said 'ere
I think you better sign it's a letter designed
To have you married by the first of the year
Get the Justice of the Peace
Get the Justice get the Justice of the Peace
Oh get the Justice of the Peace
Get the Justice get the Justice of the Peace

If you want to play with fire
You'll get yourself burned
