G          A                    Bm              Bm 
Saturday morning jumped out of bed and put on my best suit
G          A                    Bm              Bm 
Got in my car and raced like a jet, all the way to you
G          A                    D              Bm
Knocked on your door with heart in my hand To ask you a question 
G          A                    D             Bm
Cause I know that you're an old fashioned man yeah yeah 

[Pre Chorus:]

 G                                A
Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? 
     D/F#                  Bm
say yes, say yes, Cause I need to know 
G                                A
You say I'll never get your blessings till the day I die 
     D                     Bm
Tough luck my friend but the answer is no!


 G             A            D              Bm
Why you gotta be so rude? , Don't you know I'm human too 
G              A          D              Bm
why you gotta be so rude I'm gonna marry her anyway
G             A          
marry that girl (marry her anyway)
D              Bm
marry that girl (yeah no matter what you say)
G                 A        
marry that girl (and we'll be a family)
D              Bm     G      A    D     Bm
Why you gotta be so rude 

[Verse 2]

G          A                    D                Bm 
I hate to do this, you leave no choice  I can't live without her 
G          A                    D               Bm 
Love me or hate me we will be boys Standing at that alter 
G          A                    D              Bm
or we will run away to another galaxy you know 
G          A                    D              Bm
You know she's in love with me She will go anywhere I go
