Lyric of the day from the Gigliotti vinyl collection

Well, a proud daddy only wanna give his little girl the best
So he put down a grand on a cozy little lovers’ nest
You could have called the reception an unqualified success
At a French hotel for 150 guests.

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)

“I Knew the Bride (When She Used to Rock and Roll)”
Nick Lowe’s Last Chicken in the Shop (Stiffs Live, 1978)
