What a strange world we live in,
What a shame, oh what a shame!
Someone's always quarrellin'
The marriage don't remain.
Divorces by the thousands
Is the human race insane?
I always thought that marriage
Should be a sacred thing.

[Chorus]
Married by the bible divorced by the law
Ev'ry day there's more and more,
The worst I ever saw.
Things have changed, they're not the same
As the days of ma and pa,
They were married by the bible,
No divorces by the law.

Steps are often taken
Without thinking twice
And oft' times there's a child or two
Who's left to pay the price.
Those little hearts so innocent
They don't know who's to blame,
No mom and dad to love them,
What a shame, oh what a shame!

[Chorus]
