Wedding Bells
    (Difford/Tilbrook)
     
      There at the altar I held up my head
      The sun shone through the stained glass
      I thought of Jesus I thought of my friends
      The angels played on their harps
      Me in my suit which doesn't fit now
      Touched by the greatest feeling
      All of my family standing around
      Outside the bells were peeling

      Everyone happy but none more than me
      The ring upon her finger
      How the memory lingers 

      Outside the cameras caught every kiss
      All covered in confetti
      Little old ladies looking on as if
      They had been made of jelly
      Along came the cars the ceremony through
      And off to the reception
      Where everyone stands in pink and blue
      A life long odd collection 

      When wedding bells chime
      I think of the day
      When me and my
      When me and my bride
      Were given away
      The memory is vivid and strong
      But if I had a magic wand
      Would things have been the same
      Would I be nervous again?
