I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n roll
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n roll

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
I see her catch my eye and give me a secret smile
Maybe it's too old-fashionable 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
Spinning like a top, you shoulda 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, 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
At a flash hotel for a hundred and fifty guests

Well, 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 a shirt and tie is nice
But I remember a time when she never woulda looked at him twice

Well, I can see her now drinking with the boys
Breaking their hearts like they were toys
She used to do the party, used to do the so
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 the walkman on
Jumping up and down to her favorite song
I still remember when she used wanna make a lot of noise
Hopping and rocking with a street kind of voice

She used to wanna party, used to wanna 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 rock 'n roll
I knew the bride when she used to rock 'n roll

I knew the bride when she used to do the party
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
