Godley & Creme – Wedding Bells lyrics

I should have told you
All I wanted was to have some fun
But you wanted me
To be the permanent one
Yes you did
Now when we're in the movies
Or the back of a car
You always stop me
When I go too far
I should have known
You'd always keep me waiting
For those wedding bells
Those wedding bells
Oh we could talk all night
But you won't understand
(don't leave me in the lurch today)
The only words you want to hear are
"Do you take this man?" (in church today)
Does the lull in conversation
Mean the penny's droppin'
You should have known
That I was only window shoppin'
It's my clumsy way of sayin'
That we should be stoppin'
Those wedding bells
Those wedding bells
I'm like a square peg in a round hole
I don't belong here baby
Don't need a fanfare or a drum role
To tell you baby
I don't belong to you baby
Oh you say it's not important
But I know what you're thinkin'
'cos every time we kiss
I feel your kisses stingin'
In the back of my mind I know
You'll always be ringin'
Those wedding bells
Those wedding bells
I knew I should have told you
All I wanted was to have some fun
(that was yesterday)
But you wanted me to be
The permanent one
(say yes today)
Oh I'd do it but the pleasure
Isn't worth the pain
We'd run out of track
Before we got on the train
Can't you hear the sound of heartstrings
Snappin' under the strain
Of those wedding bells
Those wedding bells
Those wedding bells
Those wedding bells
