I Knew the Bride (Status Quo)

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 posh 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
