NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND - Dance Little Jean Lyrics

I played a wedding for the money,And I wished that I could tell the bride and groomJust what I thought of marriageAnd what's in store after their honeymoon.And I was grumblin' to the dancers'bout how men and women ought to live apartAnd how a promise never made can not be brokenAnd can never break your heartWhen suddenly from out of nowhere,A little girl came dancing 'cross the floor,And all her crinolines were billowingBeneath the skirt of calico that she wore.Oh what a joy fell on the honored guestsAs each of them was drawn inside her dream,And they laughed and clapped and stomped their feetAnd hollered at her dance little jeanDance, little jean, this day is for you,Two people you love, stood up and said I doDance little jean, the prayer that you hadWas answered todayYour mama's marrying your dadWell, my cynical heart just melted'cause I knew what this get together meantHow it ended year of tears and sad confusionThat the little girl had spent.Well they told the band to pack it upAbout the time the couple cut the cake,But we played as long as they stayedFor 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 doDance little jean, the prayer that you hadWas answered todayYour mama's marrying your dad
