Now I've been marr__ied 

About six months
Only six months you_ see_

The first three months

Was all ok 
The last three__s killin'__ me

My wife began to hissin' 

She cut down on her kissin'
And then she failed to shi_ne my shoes

My shirts they came up wrinkled

My pants with dirt were sprinkled
And I too__k the first year blues

Well then she started naggin'
She left the sink a saggin'
With dishes piled up high

No food upon the table
She said if I get able
I'd cook something bye__ and bye__

Then I began to wonder
If I had made a blunder
When I__ said I_ do

She must have read my thinkin'
Her eyes began to blinkin' 
And that gal broke in two__

Well I heard the dishes crashin'
And I began to dashin'
Gettin' out of sight

For right there was my honey
On who I'd spent my money
Turnin' in__ to dy__na_mi__te

Then after she'd exploded
Her meanness all unloaded
And things began to simmer down

I found myself a bleedin'
And very much a needin'
Of stitches taken a__ll around

Well then she started cryin'
I felt myself a sighin'
And then I took her in my arms

I was afraid to scold her
So I just gently told her
She didn't do___ a bi__t of ha__rm

Now the first six months is over
And I'm much the older
And experienced with a__ wife

If I can take the next six
My friends all say I'll be fixed
To take i__t the rest of my__ li__fe
