Fred Knoblock – Why Not Me lyrics

I'll take another wedding in stride
Heres another June wedding
I'm sittin on the brides 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 daddys 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 were 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 wont 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 togethe
