"Jilted" as written by Jimmy Briggs and Robert Spotswood....
Mama's embarrassed, Daddy is furious
And Brother is looking for him with a gun
And those who came to wish me well
Are watching me go through hell
My tears have just begun
As I look in my Mama's face
As I look in my Daddy's face
Can't help but hang my head in disgrace
I been jilted
J-I-L-T-E-D
Jilted!
The man I love has jilted me!

Preacher man, preacher man
Put your bible away
Ain't gonna be no wedding here today
Flower girl, flower girl
Take those flowers out your hands
Throw them, throw them
In the nearest garbage can
Ain't it a shame, such a shame
A lowdown shame
Gonna have a child
But my child won't have a name!
I been jilted
Jilted!
Jilted!
Jilted!

How am I gonna face tomorrow
How will I survive a world of sorrow
What will my friends have to say
When they learn he has gone away

Preacher man, preacher man
Put your bible away
Ain't gonna be no wedding here today

Daddy go get brother
Before he gets in trouble
...from the union hall
and don't forget the wedding cake
Took mama all night long to bake
Show me a phone I gotta make me a call
Ain't it a shame, such a shame
A lowdown shame
Gonna have a child
But my child won't have a name!
I been jilted
Jilted!
The man I love has jilted me!
Jilted!
J-I-L-T-E-D
