Janis Ian: Married in London

Married in London
by Janis Ian

We’re married in London
But not in New York
Spain says we’re kosher
The states say we’re pork

We wed in Toronto
The judge said “Amen”
And when we got home
we were single again

It’s hard being married
And living in sin
Sometimes I forget just
Which state I am in

Thank God I’m not Catholic
I’d be a mess
Trying to figure out
What to confess

My passport in Sweden
Says I’ve got a wife
Amsterdam tells me
I’m partnered for life

But back in America
Land of the free
I’m a threat to the
National security

If I were a frog
Here’s what I would say
It’s hard being green
It’s hard being gay

But love has no colors
And hearts have no sex
So love where you can
And f*ck all the rest.
