Wedding Bells Blues

Married by a de-frocked priest
[the folks didn't have a clue ]
the day was mostly sunny,
the geese were quaking too!

My groom it seems was fretin'
but my brother well [he knew ]
Mary Jane was just the thing
to go with cheese fondue!

Pond side, down garden path
the flower girl was crying
the ring bearers pillow dropped
the brides maids were sighing!

Missing Mom finally showed,
her ex in tow with tootsie
what delight, what painful fright
and me the raving beauty!

What a day, that 26th of May
I should have guessed, you know
when the wedding suites' door
stuck, they gave us free bordeaux.

    Funny, but sad as well. To cheer you up: Good friends of ours married some years ago. In the tradition of planning the wedding, the bride and mother did most of the planning. The groom to be, only listened with half an ear when the date was set. Came the big day, the men all grumbled having to attend a wedding on FA Cup Final Day. The ceremony was rushed through and the men retired to the bar at the hotel, leaving the women folk seething over umpteen cups of tea. They divorced some time later on
