Shemekia Copeland – Cold Feet lyrics

Let me tell you 'bout my big day
The biggest day in my whole life
He was gonna be my husband
And I was gonna be his wife
I couldn't wait to say "I do"
To show him that I care
But when I looked around
That no good wasn't there
He got cold feet, left me in the lurch
Cold feet, standin' in the church
He just ran away, left me holding the bouquet
Het got cold feet

He said he'd never been so happy
It was time to settle down
But next thing that I know
He's moving out of town
I don't know which way he went
I don't know where that man was heading
Well now you know the reason
I always cry at weddings
He got cold feet, man he just moved
Cold feet, took all my money too
He said "I'll see you later", dropped me like a hot potatoe
He got cold feet
(Did a disappearing act!)

He said "Honey I'll be there, right there by your side
When that organ starts to play that song 'Here comes the bride'"
The whole church was singing, man we really rocked the room
The only problem we had, we couldn't find the groom
He got cold feet, egg on my face
Cold feet, never left a trace
Gave mama the phone, spent my honeymoon alone
He got cold feet

Ladies if you plan to marry
Find a man that you can trust
Don't get stuck there at the altar
Or left there in the dust
Listen to these words of wisdom
And your bubble will never burst
A handsome face is one thing
But check out his feet first
And see if he's got cold feet, he left me in the lurch
Cold feet, standin' in the church
He just went away, left me holdin' the bouquet
Het got cold feet
And see if he's got cold feet, man he just flew
Cold feet, he took
