All Things Bright and Beautiful (From Follies) / Bang! (From A Little Night Music) / All Things Bright and Beautiful (Part 2) (From Follies) Lyrics

marry me a little - stephen sondheim

marry me a little

love me just enough

 

cry but not too often

play but not too rough

keep a tender distance

 

so we'll both be free

 

that's the way it ought to be

 

i'm ready

marry me a little

 

do it with a will

 

make a few demands

i'm able to fulfill

 

want me more than others

 

not exclusively

 

that's the way it oughta be

 

i'm ready

 

i'm ready now

 

you can be my best friend

 

i can be your right arm

 

we'll go through a fight or two

no harm, no harm

we'll look not too deep

we'll go not too far

we won't have to give up a thing

we'll stay who we are

right? ok then

 

i'm ready

 

i'm ready now

someone marry me a little

 

love me just enough

 

warm and sweet and easy

just the simple stuff

 

keep a tender distance

 

so we'll both be free

 

that's the way it oughta be

 

i'm ready

 

marry me a little

body, heart, and soul

 

passion as hell

but always in control

 

want me first and formost

 

keep me company

 

that's the way it oughta be

 

i'm ready

 

i'm ready now

 

oh how gently we'll talk

 

oh how softly we'll tred

all the stends, the ugly things

we'll keep unsaid

we'll build a cocoon

of love and respect

 

you promise whatever you like

i'll never collect

right? ok then

 

i'm ready

 

i'm ready now

someone

 

i'm ready
