I thought I knew what love was like
The fairytale, the masquerade
You proved me wrong and made me learn
In simple terms, take me to the church

The dreams I dreamt have lost their spice
The goals I made I'll sacrifice
The car, the house, the millionaire
I don't care, just take me to the church
Oh I'll

Forget the white Mercedes, lords and ladies
The secret safe behind the door, marble on the floor
Forget the house in Mayfair, we'll live somewhere
Keep saving up the bus fare, to take me to the church

My friend's words didn't mean a thing
She'd show me how her perfect ring
Which cost a grand would compliment
Her tiny hand, take me to the church

And in my dreams, he'd write a check
And slip a diamond 'round my neck
And love would stand where it could see
And laugh at me, take me to the church
Oh I'll

Forget the white Mercedes, lords and ladies
The secret safe behind the door, marble on floor
Forget the house in Mayfair, we'll live somewhere
Keep saving up the bus fare, to take me to the church

When you were just a step away, well I feel so lonely
And now I know the time is right for this matrimony
I'm gonna love you till I die
I wanna tell the world the reason why
Oh I'll

Forget the white Mercedes, lords and ladies
The secret safe behind the door, marble on the floor
Forget the house in Mayfair, we'll live somewhere
Keep saving up the bus fare, to take me to the church
