Song Meaning
Verse 1
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll
Verse 2
Well, the bride was a picture in the gown that her mama wore
When she was married herself nearly twenty-seven years before
The had to change the style a little but it looked just fine
Stayed up all night, but they got it finished just in time
Verse 3
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.
Verse 4
Well, I can see her now in her tight blue jeans
Stuffin' all her money in the record machine
Spinnin' like a top, you shoulda 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
Verse 5
Well, the proud daddy only want 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 posh hotel for a hundred and fifty guests
Verse 6
Well, take a look at the bridegroom smilin' pleased as pie
Shakin' hands all around with a glassy look in his eye
He 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
Verse 7
Well, I can see her now drinkin' with the boys
Breakin' 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 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
Verse 8
Harp ride
Verse 9
Well, I can see her now with her walk man on
Struttin' up and down to her favorite song
I still remember when she used to wanta make a lot of noise
Hoppin' and 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 wanta party
I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll
