Marry Me
Emilie Autumn Lyrics


Marry me, he said, through his rotten teeth, bad breath, and then
Marry me instead of that strapping young goatherd, but when
I was in his bed, and my father had sold me
I knew I hadn't any choice, hushed my voice, did what any girl would do and
When I'm beheaded at least I was wedded
And when I am buried at least I was married
I'll hide my behavior with wine as my savior

But, oh, what beautiful things I'll wear
What beautiful dresses and hair
I'm lucky to share his bed
Especially since I'll soon be dead

Marry me, he said, god, he's ugly, but fortune is ours
Running in the gardens enjoying men, women, and flowers
Then I break a glass and I slit my own innermost thigh
So that I can pretend that I'm menstru...well, unavailable
My life is arranged but this union's deranged
So I'll fuck who I choose for I've nothing to lose
And when master's displeased I'll be down on my knees again

Oh, what beautiful things I'll wear
What beautiful dresses and hair
I'm lucky to share his bed
Especially since I'll soon be dead

When dining on peacock I know I won't swallow
Through balls, births, and bridge games I know what will follow
We're coupled together through hell, hurt, and hunger
Or at least until husband finds someone younger
Yes, fertilization is part of my station
I laugh as he drabs me in anticipation
Of sons who will run things when I'm under covers
But whose children are they? Why, mine and my lover's!

But, oh, what beautiful things I'll wear
What beautiful dresses and hair
I'm lucky to share his bed
Especially since I'll soon be dead
What beautiful things I'll wear
What beautiful dresses and hair
I'm lucky to share his bed
So why do I wish I was...

Hi all,


I'm blew away by all the views on this lyric video. I was wondering if you could all give a listen to my own music on my channel. I have started a journey of underground house music as well as a visual project to go along with it.


Lots of love,
Richie / Dhiaga. xo

For anyone curious, this song is about queen Catherine Howard, fifth wife of Henry the 8th for about a year. She was beheaded for committing adultery. She had an affair with Thomas culpeper, and in the song when she says, "whose children are they?" She's talking about the reason why Catherine had the affair. Catherine knew that if she could not produce any children, the king would get rid of her anyway he could, just like he had her cousin Anne Boleyn. So she had the affair to try and become pregnant, and fake it as king Henry's.

Sabrina KrisB no i’m just saying what i’ve read? and no one knows exactly what happened. y’all take this way too deep lmfao shut the fuck up

Sabrina KrisB

This is shitty, non-factual made up history that demonizes and blames the woman. You're literally believing what that monster Henry the 8th would want you to believe.
