Pretty Wild Bride
(Keith Swanson / ItsAThing Music; Kyf Brewer / Brewerds&Music / ASCAP)

minister's stammering she can tell it's for the record though
cuz biblically speaking we was already wed
still see you standing there with your hair done up and everything
your daddy beside ya with his face beet red

cov'rin' the bogs, i nearly missed the alter
but i couldn't leave ya standin' and the caterer besides
gone are the days the ladies used to halter me
i'm making my peace with all who poisoned my pride

and it's too ra loo and i'm on my way
loosen your corset and we'll sing all the day
singin' too ra loo and i've all i need
bottle of mead and my pretty wild bride

int'resting that i knew no one at me own reception
but i took it for granted that they all knew me nurse
sharin' me whisky with all me brand newfound relations
put a lump in my throat and a hole in my purse

piper was drunk at least that's how he sounded when
i pulled him from a fun'ral drinkin' every man's rum
missus was holdin' her own out on the dancin' floor
with ev'ry wanker tryin' to grab a pinch of her bum
but if you need a dancer she's as good as they come

and it's too ra loo and i'm on my way
loosen me tie yeah we'll be here all day
singin' too ra loo and i've all i need
packet of weed and my pretty wild bride
