Status Quo

Status Quo - I Knew The Bride

rate me

( Lowe )

Well the bride looked a picture in the gown that her momma wore

When she was married herself nearly twenty-seven years before

They 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

And she catches my eye and she gives me a secret smile

Maybe it's too old-fashioned but we were once close friends

But the way 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

I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll

I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll

Now a proud daddy only wanna give his little girl the best

So he put down a grand on a cosy little lovers nest

You could have called the reception an unqualified success

And a flash hotel for a hundred and fifty guests

Well I can see her now drinking with the boys

Breaking their hearts like they were toys

She used to love to party, she used to love to 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

Well I can see her now with her headphones on

Jumping up and down to her favourite song

She used to love to party, she 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

Take a look at the bridegroom smiling pleased as pie

Shaking hands all round with a glassy look in his eye

He got a real good job and the shirt and tie is nice

But I remember a time when she would never even look at him twice

Well I can see her now drinking with the boys

Breaking their hearts like they were toys

She used to love to party, she used to love to 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 rock and roll

I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll
