​God Wants Us To Wait

This song is by The Magnetic Fields and appears on the album Love at the Bottom of the Sea (2012).

I think I know what you would like us to do
When we have children, let's have seventy-two
Until then we must be resigned to our fate
I love you, baby, but God wants us to wait

I guess it's true I should have told you before
And not have waited till we're nude on the floor
Though it would be the perfect end to our date
I love you, baby, but God wants us to wait

Now you might like to kiss the dew on my hem
But when male and female created He them
Our lord intended us forever to mate
I love you, baby, but God wants us to wait

Despite my beauty and the scent of jasmine
Could you be happy in the knowledge of sin?
Although it may not be a crime in our state
I love you, baby, but God wants us to wait
How much more wonderful to anticipate
I love you, baby, but God wants us to wait
