"American Wedding" as written by and Christopher Breaux....
I took a walk with the palm trees as the daylight fell
Sangria in a canteen
Talking to myself
This tattoo on my left hand
Is turning purple-ish blue
Daydreams of the romance
Daydreams of you
My pretty woman in a ballgown
I'm Richard Gere in a tux
Getting married in a courthouse
Writing vows in a rush
Making out before the judge
With my teenage wife
Got a wedding band done
That I just might die with

It's an American wedding
They don't mean too much
But we were so in love
We had an American wedding
Now what's mine is yours
That's American law

M-r- s dot Kennedy
She signed her name in pen
In a fancy fancy cursive
Then turned her term papers in
A thesis on Islamic virgin brides and arranged marriage
Hijabs and polygamist husbands
Those poor unamerican girls
After school she ran to me
Jumped in my 5.0
This is the home of the brave
Land of the free
But your parents still didn't know
She said I've had a hell of a summer
So baby
Don't take this hard
But maybe we should get an annulment
Before this goes way to far

It's just an American wedding
They don't mean too much
They don't last enough
We had an American wedding
Now what's mine is yours
American divorce

Well you can have my mustang
That's all I've got in my name
But Jesus Christ don't break my heart
This wedding ring won't ever wipe off
But if you stay
Girl if you stay
You'll probably leave later anyway
It's love made in the U.S.A

    General Commentthis part is missing:

    Don't let em front you
    To saying you can't move without em
    Fuck em I tell em this ain't new
    We been some hustlers since it began dude
    Ain't gon' be tripping over some bitch ass dude
    They so vain I tell em this ain't you
    You keep it sensitive but this ain't true
    These niggas can't do nothing that I can't do
    That she can't
    That he can't do
    That you can't do
    That we can't do
    Man I had a dream and that shit became true
    And nigga if I did it I think you can too
    These niggas can't do nothing that I can't do
    That she can't
    That he can't do
    That you can't do
    That we can't do
    Man I had a dream and that shit became true
    These niggas can't do nothing that I can't do
    That she can't
    That he can't do
    That you can't do

    General Commentbasically, i think the song is about how us american's take advantage of marriage. &' how much of a shame it is that this is one country where you can marry someone you love &' want to be with, but in other counrties marriages are arranged, women aren't happy, def. not in love &' they're husbands are fools &' we totally take advantage of how lucky we are.

    in my opinion america is selfish &' our love's is based of lies &' good sex.. people over seas like india or china or places where marriage is arranged would DIE to marry someone they were actually in love with ..
