I hired the band
you planned a buffet line of food
and the music would be hot
You fought with our daughter
bout what color ought a
be featured in pastel chiffon
We rented the elks club
and decked it in palm trees
affecting a tropical style
then you and I set aside what separates us
As we celebrate the wedding of our child

our friends filled the hall
and brought their presents
wanted our little girl to have enough
to feather a nest and start a family
the kids must feel this out pouring of love
And I just hope that these friends and this family
will keep our baby in their thoughts
and will be there in years to come to help them
use of and need of all the stuff they brought
Chorus
So dance with me mother of the bride
and then stand strong against me at my side
take a look with joy and wonder as our daughter and her man
take the floor for we really want them to be happy as they can
squeeze my hand and whisper earnestly that you
hope they avoid all the pain that we went through
and I agree that they'll be lucky and it's the truth
if he loves her half as much as I love you

As her papa proudly walks round with the bride
but one dance with her wont be enough dear
I gave her away on the hillside this morning
but its not that easy giving her up
So dance with me mother of the bride
Cheek to cheek so she won't know that I have cried
take a look with joy and wonder
as our daughter and her man
take the floor for we really want them to be happy as they can
squeeze my hand and whisper earnestly that you
hope they avoid all the pain that we went through
and I agree that they'll be lucky and its the truth
if he loves her half as much as I love you
