Lyrics

I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll Well, the bride looks a picture In the gown that her mama wore When she was married herself Nearly twenty-seven years before The had to change the style A little but it looked just fine Stayed up all night, but They got it finished just in time Now on the arm of her daddy She`s walking down the aisle I see her catch my eye And give me a secret smile Maybe it`s too old fashioned But we once were close friends Oh, but the way that she looks today She never could have then Well, I can see her now In her tight blue jeans Pumping all her money In the record machine Spinning like a top You shoulda seen her go I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll Well, the proud daddy only Want to give his little girl the best So he put down a grand On a cozy little lovers nest You could have called the Reception an unqualified success At a posh hotel for a Hundred and fifty guests Well, take a look at the Bridegroom smiling, pleased as pie Shaking hands all around With a glassy look in his eye He got a real good job And his shirt and tie is nice But I remember a time When she never would Have looked at him twice Well, I can see her now Drinking with the boys Breaking their hearts Like they were toys She used to do the pony Used to do the stroll I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll

Well, I can see her now With her walkman on Strutting up and down To her favorite song I still remember when she used To wanta make a lot of noise Hopping and bopping With the street corner boys She used to wanna party Used to wanna go I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll I knew the bride when She used to do the pony I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll I knew the bride when She used to wanta party I knew the bride when She used to rock and roll
