Another Close Call

(Lou Abbott)

Watching friends in my  twenties go down the aisle and glad that I waited until I was past lonely.

An old girlfriend of mine got married today

I cried when her Daddy gave her away

I cried when the couple walked down the aisle

But after they passed, I just had to smile.

  Oo-we, another close call

   The harder girls make it, the quicker men fall.

   I'm just glad it's not me

   I'd rather be lonely than wish I were free.

He's dressed in black, she's dressed in white

The difference will be like day and night

Cause she soon will change and he'll stay the same

He'll run the bases while she runs the game.

   Chorus

Her father is smiling, her mother's in tears

They've been waiting for this for a whole lot of years

Cause their job is over, and his has begun

If he knew what they did, he'd pack up and run.

  Chorus
