A Marriage Proposal
[JASON, spoken]
This is how you make a marriage proposal

[MENDEL]
I love you, dear
I think you're swell
You're never near me close enough to tell
If I'm delightful or not

I crave your wrist
I praise your thigh
There's not a guy
There's not a piece of paper
There's not a man in pants
Who could love you the same as I!

Oftentimes, lovers are crazy people
Sometimes they kill each other
Just like a biblical brother
Did to his biblical brother
Back in biblical times

[TRINA, spoken]
Biblical times?

[MARVIN, spoken]
Biblical times?
[MENDEL, spoken]
Biblical times

[sung]
Oh, those biblical times!

I love your eyes
I love your face
I want you by my side to take my place
If I get sick or detained

Don't touch your hair, you're perfect
Don't start to cry
There's not a guy
There's not a horse or zebra
There's not a giant man
Who could love you the same as I!

Forget that giant man
He can't love you the same as I!
I'm not a giant man

[TRINA, spoken]
Good

[MENDEL]
But I'll love you until
Love you until
I die!
