You Never Can Tell
Chuck Berry


It was a teenage wedding, and the old folks wished them
well
You could see that Pierre did truly love the madamoiselle
And now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel
bell,
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you
never can tell

They furnished off an apartment with a two room Roebuck
sale
The coolerator was crammed with TV dinners and ginger ale,
But when Pierre found work, the little money comin' worked
out well
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you
never can tell

They had a hi-fi phono, boy, did they let it blast
Seven hundred little records, all rock, rhythm and jazz
But when the sun went down, the rapid tempo of the music
fell
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you
never can tell

They bought a souped-up jitney, 'twas a cherry red '53,
They drove it down to Orleans to celebrate the anniversary
It was there that Pierre was married to the lovely
madamoiselle
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you
never can tell
