JOSH

We weren’t friends yet

When you caught my eye.

I was quite surprised,

Because you’re... not a guy.


It wasn’t long

Before it dawned on me

I’d found me a back-up —

My sweet Plan B!


So marry me, babe,

If you stay on your own,

If your hair starts to gray

And you find you’re still alone.


Oh promise me now,

If you ever see that day —

Although you’re not my type — you’ll

Marry me anyway.


ALYSHA

We’ve got a spark.

That cannot be denied.

When it comes to hookin’ you,,

Lord knows I tried.

Let’s make a pact — a personal guarantee:

Before we’re old maids, let’s say you’ll marry me.


JOSH

You know you’re my amigo.


ALYSHA

Baby, you’re my truest friend.

I’ll be at your side. 


JOSH

I got your back to the bitter end.


ALYSHA

You’re not the kind of a boy I ever thought I would find.

But marry me, baby, if you don’t mind.


So marry me.  Hey, 

I know it sounds insane.

Oh, think on it.  Say, 

You know the answer seems quite plain.


JOSH

Hell, what’s there to lose? 

I’m not suggesting today.


BOTH

If worse comes to worse, marry me anyway.


JOSH

What do you say?

Why don’t we stack the deck?


ALYSHA

Let’s put an ace in the hole,

Play it safe.  What the heck!


It’s just a precaution.

We’ll just wait and see.


JOSH

But if love doesn’t find you first then,

Marry me.


BOTH

Oh, marry me baby,


JOSH

Let fear be your guide,

If you have no groom.


ALYSHA

And if you’re never a bride.


BOTH

I may not have the parts that you need to play.

I’ll make up for it, baby,


ALYSHA

So marry me anyway.


JOSH

Oh marry me babe,

If Cupid leaves you ditched.


ALYSHA

Come on and marry me babe,

If you should stay unhitched.


BOTH

Maybe if it’s fate that you don’t catch the bouquet.

Let’s let bygones be gone and marry me anyway.


JOSH

Let’s shake on it baby!
