Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Always Marry an Ugly Girl
Bee-dubya-ell, you have the chorus right, as I've heard it. The verses I remember are:

My brother married an ugly girl
She drank from a special cup
She had a great big upper lip
But her lower lip covered it up.

My cousin married an ugly girl,
The family got uptight
But they had a formal wedding,
They painted the shotgun white

My uncle married an ugly girl
He thought he had it made.
But every night, when she undressed,
The neighbors pulled their shades.
