One of the best "Cruisin' Songs."
CHUCK BERRY originated what we think of as "Rock 'n Roll."
Guitar-based, guitar-featured syncopated loud music, with style and flash, and a hook that must be driven home.

It was a teenage wedding, and the old folks wished them well
You could see that Pierre did truly love le mademoiselle
Now that the young monsieur and madame had rung the chapel bell
"C'est la vie," said the old folks, "It goes to show you never can tell."

They furnished off an apartment with a Sears and Roebuck sale
The coolerator was crammed with TV dinners and ginger ale (she couldn't cook!)
But when Pierre found work, the little money came in worked out well
"C'est la vie," say the old folks, "It goes to show you never can tell."

Had a hi-fi phono, WOW, did they let it blast
Seven hundred little EP's, all rock & rhythm & jazz
But when the sun went down, the rapid tempo of the music sorta fell (for various reasons . . .)
"C'est la vie," say the old folks, "It goes to show you never can tell."

They bought a souped-up Mercedes; it was a cherry red '53
Drove it down to New Orleans to celebrate their anniversary
It was there where Pierre was wedded to the lovely mademoiselle
"C'est la vie," say the old folks, "It goes to show you never can tell!"
