lyrics

VERSE 1

We were / soul mates from the day we met
Now our wedding date is set
So it’s with great sadness and regret
That I say I think you’ll never really get / me

From the moment we fell in each other’s stare
You’ve always said I look debonair
So you’ll understand why I think it’s unfair
That you suddenly demand that I be facial hair / free

CHORUS 1

You say our love will go on and on
But for our wedding day, you want my whiskers gone
You seem shocked to hear that I’ve declined

I’d do for you most anything I’m able
But shaving my beard is not on the table
So if I have to choose, it’s you I’m leaving behind

VERSE 2

You seem a little bit surprised
That I come as advertised
Though my love for you is highly prized
There’s one thing I will never compromise

So take me or leave me as I am
Like back in school, it’s a pass/fail exam
Accept my beard or I may as well scram
Our marriage otherwise would merely be a sham

CHORUS 2

How can we spend our lives as one
If my whiskers make you run
This facial fuzz is how I am designed

I’d do for you most anything I’m able
But shaving my beard is not on the table
So if iI have to choose, it’s you I’m leaving behind

BRIDGE

Don’t make me choose
Don’t make me choose
Don’t make me choose
‘Cause if you do you’re gonna lose


CHORUS 3

I’m sorry that it’s come to this
I’ll always long for your tender kiss
But asking me to shave is more than just unkind

I’d do for you most anything I’m able
But shaving my beard is not on the table
If it comes to a choice, you’re the one I’m leaving behind
So if I have to choose, it’s you I’m leaving behind

If it comes to a choice, it’s you I’m leaving behind
