One Man, One Woman: a theme song for traditional marriage advocacy based on Queen's One Vision


A man and a woman talking while having dinner

I used to be a fan of the rock band, Queen, during my high school days.  One of their albums is One Vision which contains the song with a similar title. The Queen's song is actually apt for same-sex marriage advocates who made homosexual lust as the new religion. But I think, with a slight change in the lyrics, this song can be transformed into a battle song us who fight for traditional marriage around the world, especially in light of the recent Supreme Court's decision to uphold same-sex marriage in the US following a 5-4 decision by the Justices. Below is my riff of the song. I'll post the a textual analysis of the original song in the succeeding post.

One Man, One Woman 

(Lyrics based on Queen's One Vision)

One man, one woman, one mission.
One heart, one soul, Just one solution.
One blessing of priest, yeah,
One God, one union.

One flesh, one bone, one true religion.
One voice, one hope, one real decision.
Wowowowo, we have one vision, yeah.

We know it's right
That our children need a mom and a dad.
One home, one love.
We all need this one worldwide vision.

One flesh, one bone, one true religion.
One voice, one hope, one real decision.
Wowowowowo, oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah!

We had a dream when we were young--a dream of happy family,
A glimpse of hope and unity, and visions of one sweet union.

Now a cold wind blows and a dark rain falls. And in my heart it shows.
Look what they've done to our dream, yeah.

One vision!

So give us your hands, Give us your hearts. We'll fight!
There's only one marriage union.
One world, one nation, Yeah, one vision.

No lust, but love. Just marital bliss all through the night.
It's a celebration. Wowowowo, yeah.

One [echo]
(One vision)

One flesh, one bone, one true religion.
One voice, one hope, One real decision.

Grant us our prayer, yeah! Grant us our hope, yeah!
Oh grant us, Lord.
One man, one woman--one family one day (one day!).
Please bless us, bless us, bless us, bless us with babies
For our nation [fading]
Four dancing men
One Vision
Man and woman sitting on grass. Key and rings.
