Played a wedding for the money and I wish I could have told the bride and groom
I was rumbling through the verses about how men and women ought to live apart,

Her crinolines were billowing beneath the skirt of calico she wore.
And they laughed and stamped and clapped their hands and hollered at her, dance little jean!
They said:
Two people that you love stood up to say 'i do.'
Your momma's marrying your dad.
Well this cynic's heart just melted as I figured what this get together meant
They told the band to pack it up about the time the couple cut the cake

Dance little jean, this day is for you,
Dance little jean, the prayer that you had was answered today-

Dance little jean, this day is for you,
Dance little jean, the prayer that you had was answered today-
