Lyrics

Well, the bride looks a picture in the gown that her mama wore
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 got it finished just in time
And on the arm of her daddy, she’s walkin' 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’ve then
Well, I can see her now, in her tight blue jeans
Pumpin' all her money in the record machines
Spinnin' like a top, you should have seen her go
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n' roll
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n' roll
Well, her proud daddy only wanna give his little girl the best
And so he put down a grand on a cosy little lover’s nest
You could’ve called her reception an unqualified success
At a flash hotel for a hundred and fifty guests
Well, take a look at the bridegroom, smilin' as pleased as pie
He’s shakin' hands all around with a glassy look in his eye
He’s got a real good job, and his shirt and tie is nice
But I remember a time when she never would’ve looked at him twice
Well, I can see her now, drinkin' with the boys
Breakin' all their hearts like they were toys
She used to do the pony, she used to do the stroll
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n' roll
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n' roll
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n' roll
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n' roll
Well, I can see her now, with her headphones on
Jumpin' up and down to her favorite song
Still remember when she used to want to make a lot of noise
Hoppin' and a boppin' with the street corner boys
She used to want to party, she used to want to go
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n' roll
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n' roll
I knew the bride when she used to do the pony
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n' roll
I knew the bride when she used to wanna party
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n' roll
