Black 47 – Maria's Wedding lyrics

Oh Maria, I'm so sorry I wrecked your wedding
You've just gotta believe me
But just the thought of you takin' your clothes off for that jerk
Oh, it got me drinkin' and then suddenly I'm staggerin' into church
And I'm dancin' like Baryshnikov all across the high altar
Oh I bet that you're still mortified
But just think, girl,
No one's ever gonna be forgetting
The day I wrecked your wedding
Oh Maria, I'd get down on my knees girl
You've just gotta believe me
But just the sight of you in your brand new weddin' dress
Oh, it got me so upset
And then your father's screamin' and callin' me
"You no good lazy punk
I always knew you were a drunk"
And your mother, she's havin' her 19th nervous breakdown
But just think girl
No one's ever gonna be forgetting
The day I wrecked your wedding
Oh Maria, I'll do anything you ask me to, I swear I'll change
I'll even give up drinkin', hangin' out with the boys,
'cause I just can't live without your body and you
Oh Maria, I'll even sell my strat, give up the band
You better believe me, girl, this time it's true
Oh Maria, I'll even go out and get a job for you
Oh Maria, I'm so sorry I wrecked your weddin'
You just got to believe me
But 10 years from now this is all goin' to be one big happy memory
Oh your old man'll even grow to love me, I'll give him 6 grandchildren
I'll be so respectable, I might even run for president, I'll be so electable
I'll keep you happy and expectable and forever pregnant
That way you'll never be forgetting - the day I wrecked your wedding
