WEDDING BELLS

20 Sep 1978 sound-check version


Well I received the invitation that you sent me
You wanted me to watch you change your name
Darling I couldn't stand to see you with another
But dear I hope you're happy just the same

Wedding bells are ringing in the chapel
They should be ringing out for you and me
Well down the aisle you will soon be walking
Those wedding bell will never ring for me

Well I bought a little cottage down in the valley
I even bought a little band of gold
I planned someday you'd out it on your finger
But now the future just looks dark and cold

Well wedding bells are ringing in the chapel
They should be ringing out for you and me
Down the aisle you will soon be walking
Those wedding bells will never ring for me
Roy!

The wedding bells are ringing in the chapel
They should have been ringing out for you and me
Well down the aisle you will soon be walking
Those wedding bells will never ring for me
Those wedding bells will never ring for me
Those wedding bells will never ring for me
Those wedding bells will never ring for me
