I Knew The Bride
Nick Lowe And His Cowboy Outfit


(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll!)
(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll!)

Well, the bride looks a picture in the gown that her mama 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 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 have then!

Well, I can see her now, in her tight blue jeans,
Pumping all her money in the record machine.
Spinnin' like a top, you should have 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!

Well, her proud daddy only wants to give his little girl the best,
So he put down a grand on a cozy little lover's nest.
You could have called the reception an unqualified success,
At a flash hotel with a hundred and fifty guests.
Well take a look at the bridegroom, smilin' pleased as pie,
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 have looked at him twice!

Well, I can see her now, drinkin' with the boys,
Breakin' their hearts like she was playin' with toys.
She used to do the pony, used to do the stroll,
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!

(harmonica solo)

Well, I can see her now with her walkman on,
Jumpin' up and down to her favorite song.
I 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 wanna 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!

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 do the pony,
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll!
I knew the bride when she used to wanna party!
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll!
