You Never Can Tell

Ronnie Lane

 C
 It was a teenage wedding, and the old folks wished 'em well
 G
You could see that Pierre did truly love the mademoiselle

And now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel bell
 C
"C'est la vie," say the old folks, "It goes to show you never can tell"

Verse Two:

 C
 They furnished off an apartment with a two room Roebuck sale
 G
The coolerator was crammed with TV dinners and ginger ale

But when Pierre found work, the little money comin' worked out well
 C
"C'est la vie," say the old folks, "It goes to show you never can tell"

Verse Three:

 C
 They had a hi-fi phono, boy, did they let it blast
 G
Seven hundred little records, all blues, rock, rhythm and jazz

But when the sun went down, the volume went down as well
 C
"C'est la vie," say the old folks, "It goes to show you never can tell"

Verse Four:

 C
 They bought a souped up Chevy, 'twas a cherry red '53
 G
They drove it down to New Orleans to celebrate their anniversary

It was there that Pierre was wedded to the lovely mademoiselle
 C
"C'est la vie," say the old folks, "It goes to show you never can tell"
