"Dearly Beloved" as written by and Fred Wilhelm Georgia Middleman....
Good mornin' dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To watch two people we know
Make a big mistake
They'll stand up at the altar
And solemnly swear "I do"
They'll be together forever
'Til they find somebody new

Her daddy's in the front row
Mutterin' "Oh no, here we go again"
They had a couple dates
Now she's three months late
And it's twenty bucks a plate I spent, oh

Good mornin' dearly beloved
I'd like to welcome y'all
To see the side effects
Of sex and alcohol
Please bow your heads and join me
In a prayer for these two
Who'll be together forever
'Til they find somebody new

The bride is a flirt and the groom is worse
As he's putting the ring on her
He's checkin' out the bridesmaids
Thinkin' that he might take
The maid of honor's honor, oh

Welcome dearly beloved
We are here this afternoon
To throw rice as these two
Drive down the road to ruin
With cans tied to the bumper
And a draggin' muffler too
They'll be together forever
'Til they find somebody new

So raise your glass and join me
Here's to the bride and groom
They'll be together forever
'Til they find somebody new

    General CommentThis is about people getting married for all the wrong reasons, and before being ready to settle down.
    "Three months late". They are getting married because they messed up and she got pregnant. It's not a suitable cause for marriage, and the guests of the wedding know that the marriage will not last.

    General CommentIt's a funny, laugh-out-loud kind of song about how some people don't take marriage seriously or get married for the wrong reasons! (i.e 'cos you're three mths late or something). Faith sounds great on it, but I would love to hear either Sara Evans or Natalie Maines singing this song - They have humourous type voices.
