Oh, I'm sad to see you married
One so pretty, still so strong
To a boy who loves you nary
One cubit more than you and I
When we were both still young

But I'm tying up my tie, dear
And I will not say a word
Yes, I am feeling so goddamn sweet
Your wedding cake I will eat

I don't have a gift to bring you
No dinnerware like other guests
Just unobtrusive songs to sing you
While you walk with your father
As per your request

But I'm tucking in my shirt, dear
And I will not say a word
Yes, I am feeling so goddamn sweet
Your wedding cake I will eat

But when I drink up my drinks
And you look good to me
And I take my turn to dance
With the tired, happy bride

Selfish regret at the First Methodist
Yes, I declare to Jesus Christ
And both of his associates..

I recall living together
The first roof and bed I shared
And we loved without thinking
Before I was cooler, half as debonair

I just buttoned up my coat, dear
And I will not say a word
I am feeling so goddamn sweet
Your wedding cake I will eat
