I don't cheat on my woman
There's no adultery in my heart
So this song might not be sordid enough
To get it on the country charts
Now, clean livin' might not sell records
But I ain't lookin' for any fans
When I say I love my darlin' wife
And I'm a happily married man

Now, if I had a lover waitin' in every town
I'd have enough songs for an album
Tellin' how I fooled around
But I can't write about a two-timin' life
Like some of them superstars can
I may not have a hit but in spite of it,
I'm a happily married man

Happily married man, signed, sealed and faithful
From the beginning that's the way
The Good Lord had it planned
And when it comes to being hitched
I'd rather fight than switch
That is why I'm takin' a happily married stand

Yes, divorce has gone big business
To play around is really in
People dress it up and call'em love affairs
When God just calls it sin
What they need is the Good Lord's guidance
The foundation of his mighty hand
To bind a happily married woman
To a happily married man

Happily married man, signed, sealed and faithful
From the beginning that's the way
The Good Lord had it planned
And when it comes to being hitched
I'd rather fight than switch
That is why I'm takin' a happily married stand.
