Lyrics

A woman is the sweetest thing
On that we all agree
But when she gets the wedding band
A man's no longer free

[Chorus]
That's why I'm safe, sane and single
I'm on my merry way
Yes, I'm safe, sane and single
That's how I'm gonna stay

A wife and husband came upon
The parting of their ways
The judge gave her the bank account
And gave him ninety days

[Chorus]
A friend of mine got married
To a gal named Nellie Gray
She pawned his watch, then sold his car
And gave his clothes away

[Chorus]
I met a gal in Birmingham
And thereby hangs a tale
She had a husband doing time
Another out on bail

[Chorus]
Ha, ha, ha, I got one

I courted a gal for fifteen years
Her Pa said we should wed
If my horse could only cook
I'd marry him instead

[Chorus]
Thank God I'm safe
Thank God I'm safe
Yes, I'm safe, sane and single
That's how I'm gonna stay
Thank God I'm safe
Thank God I'm safe
Yes, I'm safe, sane and single
That's how I'm gonna stay
Thank God I'm safe
Thank God I'm safe
Yes, I'm safe, sane and single
That's how I'm gonna stay

Now, you got that?
