Song title: The honeymooners
Two kids get married, same old thing
Folks congratulate you, church bells ring
Who’s got the ring, who’s gonna pay the priest
Get your name in the paper, picture or two at least
And at the reception all the old records play
“Where you gonna live, are you gonna take her away?”
In a corner my new nephew’s showin’ me his knife
You swore that you’d love her for the rest of your life
Went to kiss you at the altar we bumped heads
Honeymoon night we figured we best shake on it instead
Dressed kinda funny, laughin’ we hop in bed
You can wear it on your feet, you can wear it on your head
Come mornin’ my new family’s sitting on the front porch swing
Smilin’ kinda funny, nobody says a thing
My new brother-in-law’s throwin’ a football, he tosses me a pass
We all sit down on the front stoop, everybody happy at last
