We don’t need an age-old institution,
Certifying us as husband and wife
A gray-haired preacher, and a ceremony,
Is not required, to keep our love alive
Shacked-up sweeties, I’m your woman not the wife
You’re not my old man, You keep me rockin’ all night
We are shacked up sweeties, together for life
In this world of online dating and mating,
We could have found lovers any-where
When you asked me out, I called you crazy,
Good old friends, in a lifelong love affair
Don’t go thinkin; that I’m gonna leave you,
‘cause I don’t wear a wedding ring
The love we have’s the best we’ve ever known,
And when I see you, my heart still does that thing
You’re my shacked-up sweetie,
I’m gonna love you for life

I m 75 and I love it! The song the feelings everything. I just told my sweetie marriages are made in the heart and broken in the heart . He can still rock my world and keep it rocking. Don’t need the church just love
Thanks so much for sharing and leaving this note! Seems like it is working for you and you are still together and that is so encouraging. What is your secret?! xo Francine
YII HAA is right. Such a fun song and so true! I love the changes in voice tone – you and your beautiful voice have come a long way!
LOVE! This is an excellent jive song. Dave and I will love dancing to this one!
Fun song. You’re an example of the good life.
Thanks Sheila. Yes, life is good…finally! xo Francine
I may be a bit late with my entry today, but for sure I’d love that extra CD to giftaway (Her-haw, love your version of this “expletive” lol)
Feeling? Love the danciness, rhythm, tempo, etc. . . . just got my first comfy cowboy boots & thrilled to see them work with a dress (!);
however, a wee bit ambivalent (my heart) as I get referred to as “the wife” quite a bit (and never liked it)
Hi Nancy…Thanks for the feedback on the song. I am SO glad you enjoyed it. Yes, get those cowboy boots out. It is boot season! I never liked being referred as “THE” wife….obviously the reason I chose that lyric for the song. Keep entering the giveaway contests. The earlier the better as far as entries go for a chance to be one of the firsts with the correct answer. xo Francine
Cute song. My old man ? I have my cd coming from the first day. Walking to school together when we couldn’t sign our name to receiving your autographed cd. Life has jumped too fast.
Oh Michelle, I know it is unreal isn’t it how life takes twists and turns. So happy to send you the CD you won the other day! You can enter the giveaways more than once. You may want to give a CD to someone for Christmas! Make sure you enter the contest.
Wow. Thank you for the song and videos. One that wants us to shake a bit and start dancing. Good way to start our day . Love for your music. And this is fun. Enjoy.
So glad you are enjoying it! I know you are dancing around getting your exercise to this 😉 haha xo Francine
Feels like dancing, dancing, dancing.

The song made me feel like getting cowboy boots and dancing!
Herhaw and giddy up! Go for it girl! It IS boot weather after all.
Ok….I can relate to this song too!
Hi Maria. Yeah!! So glad you are enjoying the music! Thanks for listening!
