The Bride and Groom were Giggling
I attended a wedding where the bride and groom were giggling
Everything seemed to be a secret between the two of them.
They looked way too young to be married, and they probably were.
I was the mother of the bride, and I thought she was too young
Even though she was five years older than I had been when I married
My husband kept saying how much he wanted to get out of there
But we were stuck up front, because we were the parents so we stayed
The reception was terrific. My sister kept telling me to stop dancing.
She was afraid at my age I might have a heart attack.
We are the same age, we are twins. I thought this was hilarious.
I may have overdone it. I was hospitalized three days later.
For pneumonia; it was the coldest weather I had ever seen.
We had to leave our daughter in Omaha, with her new family.
We are glad now. For we have six darling grandchildren
And a son-in-law who has taken great care of our baby.
If you can, go to a wedding where the bride and groom are giggling.
