Lyrics

I played a wedding for the money, And I wished that I could tell the bride and groom Just what I thought of marriage And what's in store after their honeymoon. And I was grumblin' to the dancers 'bout how men and women ought to live apart And how a promise never made can not be broken And can never break your heart

When suddenly from out of nowhere, A little girl came dancing 'cross the floor, And all her crinolines were billowing Beneath the skirt of calico that she wore. Oh what a joy fell on the honored guests As each of them was drawn inside her dream, And they laughed and clapped and stomped their feet And hollered at her dance little jean Dance, little jean, this day is for you, Two people you love, stood up and said I do Dance little jean, the prayer that you had Was answered today Your mama's marrying your dad Well, my cynical heart just melted 'cause I knew what this get together meant How it ended year of tears and sad confusion That the little girl had spent. Well they told the band to pack it up About the time the couple cut the cake, But we played as long as they stayed For love and laughs and little jeanie's sake. Dance, little jean, this day is for you, Two people you love, stood up and said I do Dance little jean, the prayer that you had Was answered today Your mama's marrying your dad
