    LYRICS:
    Common Law Wife




    I swore I'd never marry, hell, you heard it in my song.
    And if some feller caught me, well, it wouldn't be for long!
    Well gals, somewhere along the way, I fell into the straw.
    Found myself here wedded, according to the common law.

    Now I'm a common law wife, living out my life
    I ain't got no license, I'm a common law wife.

    I was raised in church each Sunday, got a fine college degree
    You'd think I'd learned my lesson ‘bout those birds and those bees
    Well, imagine my surprise then, when the stork came to my door
    I thought he was at the wrong house, with that old cart-pushin’ horse,

    Now I'm a common law wife, yes this is my life.
    I ain’t got no license, I'm a common law wife.

    Well, we wake up every morning when we hear that baby cry
    Too busy changing diapers now for walking down the aisle
    But I'm living with the only man who never broke my heart
    I guess sometimes in the middle is a real good place to start

    Cause I'm a common law wife, happy with my life
    I ain't got no license, I'm a common law wife.

    Yes, I'm a common law wife, happy with my life
    I ain't got no license, I'm a common law wife. www.angelaeasterling.com Show less
