G                    D
I am not the kind of girl 
 Am
Who should be rudely barging in

Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry

G                   D
Fond gestures are exchanged 
 Am                         
And the organ starts to play a song

That sounds like a death march
 G                     D
And I am hiding in the curtains
 Am
It seems that I was uninvited 
 C
By your lovely bride-to-be

Am      C      
She---e floats down the aisle

Like a pageant queen
