You Never Can Tell - Chuck Berry

C G G7

It was a teenage wedding, and the old folks wished them well,
                                                    G
you could see that Pierre did truly love the mademoiselle,
G
and now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel bell,
                                      G7                         C     G
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell.

They furnished off an apartment with a two room Roebuck sale,
                                                      G
the coolerator was crammed with TV dinners and ginger ale,
G
but when Pierre found work, the little money comin' worked out well,
                                      G7                         C     G

           C
They had a hi-fi phono, oh boy, did they let it blast,
                                                   G
seven hundred little records, all rock, rhythm and jazz,
G
but when the sun went down, the rapid tempo of the music fell,
                                      G7                         C     G
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell.

              C
They bought a souped-up jitney, 'twas a cherry red '53,
                                                      G
they drove it down to Orleans to celebrate the anniversary,
G
it was there where Pierre was married to the lovely mademoiselle,
                                      G7                         C     G
