Album Notes
COUPLE HOPING SONG HITS THE RIGHT NOTE

BELMONT PAIR PUSH THEIR TUNE `I DO' AS ALTERNATIVE MUSIC TO PLAY AT SAME-SEX
WEDDINGS

By Sean Webby

Mercury News

``Here Comes the Bride'' doesn't quite sing for gay couples thinking
marriage, especially the guys in tuxes. And ``Chapel of Love'' may seem out
of kilter to some standing on the steps of a rebellious City Hall.

So a Peninsula couple has penned a song whose synthesized strings and
message of love's perseverance may soon echo from progressive places across
the country.

It's called ``I Do.''

And Maryann and Ron Sfarzo, the musical couple who wrote it, think it might
be the first wedding song penned for same-sex unions.

``The door has been closed so many times for them,'' Maryann Sfarzo said.
``So I go: `I should write a song!' '' She wrote the lyrics.

``They have the same feelings as we do,'' said Ron, a 56-year-old Menlo Park
patrol cop. ``People are people. If you don't have love, you have nothing.''
He composed the music.

``We are the perfect couple to write this song,'' continued Maryann, a
former insurance agent who declined to reveal her age. ``We understand the
feelings of people.''

``I Do'' is just the latest oeuvre of the two musicians, whose
collaborations have included a patriotic tribute to America after Sept. 11,
2001, called ``America, Our Country/America, Our Home''; an ode to Oahu,
``Oh, My Sweet Honolulu''; and an unused theme for the Jerry Lewis telethon.

The latest song flashed into Maryann Sfarzo's head as she watched the
morning news broadcasting San Francisco's historic rush of gay unions.

The line of couples outside City Hall to be married thrilled and inspired
the Sfarzos, who have been married 35 years. And over the subsequent week,
Maryann began filling up Post-Its with her lyrics.

``The road that led us to this moment was not an easy climb/

The world would not accept us as we lived our lives as one/

But we stood by each other and here is where we'll stay/

Our love is true and faithful as I say `I do' today.''

Maryann Sfarzo said she wrote her lyrics to be inspirational, focusing on
the romantic mood rather than the political edge of a controversial
movement.

``I don't write lyrics that will create a major issue,'' she said. ``I just
don't go there. I think about the world as a happier place.''

I DO
What a truly wonderful song. I came across it purely by accident (I saw it on a GLAD weblink). We played it at our wedding and I am trying to find the lyrics to add them to our wedding album. Generally, when I'm looking for song lyrcis I just search in Google and they come up. These aren't. Any chance you can save me the time it'll take me to go through and listen to the song to write (and get right) every word)? Again, not only are the words super but the melody is also. Many thanks for writing it

Lyrics
No guaranty I got these 100% right:
The road the led us to this moment was not an easy climb
The world would not accept us as we lived our lives as one
But we stood by each other and here is where we'll stay
Our love is true and faithful as I say "I do" today.

Chorus
You are my strength,
You are my friend,
We’re side by side until the end of time.
You are my spirit.
A song in my heart
As I say "I do" today

Times may not be easy, but hey that’s what makes a bond.
But together we will make it; of this I have no doubt.

Chorus
You are my strength,
You are my friend,
We’re side by side until the end of time.
You are my spirit.
A song in my heart
As I say "I do" today
And we say "I do" today


I say "I do, I do love you", I SAY "I DO" TODAY!

Fab - words just about sum up our situation!
We'll be using this as the song that will be playing in the background to our Civil Partnership (12/21/06) as we sign our vows and exchange rings. Wonder if there'll be a dry eye in the house??
