One two princes kneel before you that's what I said now Princes Princes who adore you Just go ahead now One has diamonds in his pockets that's some bread now This one he wants to buy you rockets Ain't in his head now This one he got a princely racket That's what I said now Got some big seal upon his jacket Ain't in his head now Marry him your father will condone you how bout that now Marry me, your father will disown you he'll eat his hat, now Aww, marry him or marry me, I'm the one that loves you baby can't you see? Ain't got no future or a family tree, But I know what a prince and lover ought to be, I know what a prince and lover ought to be Said, if you want to call me baby Just go ahead, now An' if you want to tell me maybe Just go ahead, now If you wanna buy me flowers Just go ahead, now And if you want to talk for hours Just go ahead, now.

Barron, who claims to have no future or family tree, can only buy her rockets. It's not clear if the rockets refer to fireworks or the figurative idea of an exciting, intense relationship. Adding to the drama is Barron's impression that if she marries the rich prince her father will condone her. If she marries him, her father will disown her. Interestingly, Barron wrote the song as a year-old, in , after leaving Bennington College as a freshman. He returned to his hometown of Princeton, N.

I've been the main parent for 30 years. Living in an interfaith, marriage can be hell. In some cases you can just simply live together with differing religions. If you shift his way, be prepared for the social costs of inactivityвplus, if you really believe the doctrine, a crisis of faith.
