You Never Can Tell

 

It Was A Teenage Wedding

And The Old Folks Wished Them Well

You Could See That Pierre

Did Truly Love The Madamoiselle

And Now The Youn’ Monsieur And Madame

Have Rung The Chapel Bell

"C`Est La Vie", Say The Old Folks

It Goes To Show You Never Can Tell

 

They Furnished Off An Apartment

With A Two Room Roebuck Sale

The Coolerator Was Crammed

With Tv Dinners And Ginger Ale

But When Pierre Found Work

The Little Money Comin` Worked Out Well

"C`Est La Vie", Say The Old Folks

It Goes To Show You Never Can Tell

 

They Had A Hi-Fi Phono Boy

Did They Let It Blast

Seven Hundred Little Records

All Rock Rhythm And Jazz

But When The Sun Went Down

The Rapid Tempo Of Teh Music Fell

"C`Est La Vie", Say The Old Folks

It Goes To Show You Never Can Tell

 

They Bought A Souped-Up Jitney

Twas A Cherry Red 53

They Drove It Down To Orleans

To Celebrate The Anniversary

It Was There That Pierre Was Married

To The Lovely Madamoiselle

"C`Est La Vie", Say The Old Folks

It Goes To Show You Never Can Tell

Oh Yehaa…
