Although both versions were arranged by Nelson Riddle, there are many slight but noticeable differences. For instance:
In the Capitol version, the opening lyrics are "Love and marriage. Love and marriage go together like a horse and carriage." In the Reprise version, the opening lyrics are "Love and marriage. Love and marriage. They go together like a horse and carriage."
The Capitol version includes a crescendoinginstrumentalbridge which was later played over the closing credits of Married... with Children. This bridge is missing from the Reprise version.
In the Reprise version, Sinatra ends the song by saying (not singing) "No, sir." The ending of the Capitol version is an instrumental version of "Shave and a Haircut" with a bassoon playing the final two notes solo – a C flat and a B flat. (Traditionally, when played in B♭ major, the last two notes of "Shave and a Haircut" are an A natural and a B flat.)
