Sad Wedding Song
This is for a beer bet...Lyrics included "why not me" and "I'll just get drunk at the reception, I won't think about her twice. I'll just say congratulations and you both look real nice..."

Any help ?

Sad Wedding Song
Artist: Fred Knoblock

Song: Why Not Me

Album: Why Not Me

CD: Radio Daze: Pop Hits of the 80s, Vol. 3

Year: 1980

I'll take another wedding in stride
Here's another June wedding
I'm sittin' on the bride's side...again
Why do they always have to play that song?
You know the one
It's funny, but we never get to sing along

Her daddy's got her by one arm
I used to have her by the other
At least until she found another lover and then another

Why not me?
We had a real love
She just didn't think we could put it all together
Why not me?
We had a real love
But in a flash, she's gone forever

Well, I think we're all here
I see Bill and Charlie
No, wait -- Eddie got smart
He had a golf game, and he just had to go to it
Why do they always have to ask that question?
You know the one
Should I speak now or forever hold my peace of mind?

Why not me?
We had a real love
She just didn't think we could put it all together
Why not me?
We had a real love
But in a flash, she's gone forever, gone forever

And the ceremony is grand
But old lovers never get to make a last stand
And I held some rice in my hand
I let it fall to the floor
I just don't care anymore

I'll just get drunk at the reception
I won't think about her twice
I'll just say, ?Congratulations. You both look real nice, real nice.?

Why not me?
We had a real love
She just didn't think we could put it all together

Dan,

You are correct...unfortunately the song tracks well with my best friend's experience...fortunately, it was a long time ago !!! He still can't believe I came up with it...I did finally give you full credit after a few minutes...

Great website, eh? I am loading up my ipod based on some of these reminders!

Take care,

Jim
