"Kiss The Bride" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
Well she looked a peach in the dress she made
When she was still her mama's little girl
And when she walked down the aisle everybody smiled
At her innocence and curls
And when the preacher said is there anyone here
Got a reason why they shouldn't wed
I should have stuck up my hand
I should have got up to stand
And this is what I should have said

I want to kiss the bride yeah
I want to kiss the bride yeah
Long before she met him
She was mine, mine, mine
Don't say I do
Say bye, bye, bye
And let me kiss the bride yeah

I want to kiss the bride yeah

Underneath her veil I could see a tear
Trickling down her pretty face
And when she slipped on the ring I knew everything
Would never be the same again
But if the groom would have known he'd have had a fit
About his wife and the things we did
And what I planned to say
Yeah on her wedding day
Well I thought it but I kept it hid

I want to kiss the bride yeah
I want to kiss the bride yeah
Long before she met him
She was mine, mine, mine
Don't say I do
Say bye, bye, bye
And let me kiss the bride yeah

I want to kiss the bride yeah
I want to kiss the bride yeah
I want to kiss the bride yeah
Long before she met him
She was mine, mine, mine
Don't say I do
Say bye, bye, bye
And let me kiss the bride yeah

I want to kiss the bride yeah
I want to kiss the bride yeah
I want to kiss the bride yeah
I want to kiss the bride yeah

    Song MeaningI think the meaning of this song is pretty straight forward....

    IMHO It's something of an unrequited love song.


    He (the singer of the song) has been in love with a girl, who is now getting married... They have had a relationship historically and it has broken up, leaving the on good enough terms for him to attend her Wedding to another guy.

    He is still in love with the girl (bride) and wishes he could be getting married/back with her but he accepts that she doesn't love him back and she is happy with her new guy. He accepts this and on one hand is happy to see her happy, but secretly longs for her. He really wants to stop the ceremony but doesnt as he knows it wont make her love him.

    Been there, done that, been to the wedding, chocked back the tears and went home. :-(

    General CommentI don't think this song really has a meaning to Elton or Burnie, it may just be a fun song they came up with!

    General CommentSounds like it's about Elton getting married to his wife and Bernie Taupin or whatever songwriter wrote this song wanted to tell everyone the truth that he was gay but decided not to.
