Lyrics:
I didn't mean to,
Start any scene to
Make you sigh
Hope to die

It's most immoral
For us to quarrel
Why can't we
Both agree

Don't you know Ben Franklin wrote about this thing at length?
On the proposition that in union there is strength?

Why raise a storm up
If we'll just warm up
The blues will slumber
We'll have their number

Let's kiss and make up
Come on, let's wake up
For I need you and you need me
Let's kiss and make up
No use to break up
When we can live in harmony

I'll give you your way
You give me my way
And out the doorway
Our cares will fly away

If we be happy
The way is clear
Let's kiss, and make up
No use to break up
We need each other, dear

Let's kiss and make up
No cares to rake up
For I need you and you need me
No reprimanding
Full understanding
That we can live in harmony

The world is prose-y
When we are fighting
Lets make it rosy
By reuniting

Two heads are better
Than what I hear
Let's kiss and make up
No use to break up
We need each other, dear

Why should we shake up
A new earthquake-up
Take the uptake-up
And soon they'll bake-up
A wedding cake-up
Let's kiss and make up
We need each other dear
