Before I give you to the arms of another
I’ve got something to say…well, me and your mother
It’s the best time we’ve ever had
Being your mom and your dad
Don’t forget to write, though folks don’t write much anymore
Call from time to time, let us know how you’re doing
The occasional Sunday dinner would be nice
Maybe once a month, maybe twice if we can swing it
You and your exciting new life
You’re the newlyweds…newlyweds, husband and wife
You remind us of us at your age, we were crazy
Crazy in love all the while
Now you’re the ones, the ones who are wearing
That “pinch me, I’m dreaming” smile
Don’t forget to laugh, ‘cause laughter lightens any trouble
May no struggle or sorrow or strife ever darken your newlywed life
You remind us of us, we were young once and foolish
Feeding our hearts on a song
For who but a fool would make this commitment
When the rest of our lives are so long?
Now it’s time to go, you’re blowing kisses from the door
Blessings on you both and your brand new beginning
If a baby comes along that would be nice
We could take her off your hands from time to time
You’ll do fine in whatever you do in this life
You’re the newlyweds… you’re the newlyweds…
Newlyweds, husband and wife
