Wedding Song

We'll remember today for all the right reasons
For the kiss of the sun, in spite of the season
For the star of the show our beautiful bride
The first to prepare, but the last to arrive...

We'll remember today for many splendid things
For the making of vows and the giving of rings
We'll remember today for the pictures we take
For throwing the rice and cutting the cake

We'll remember a day of laughter and fun
For the two who are coming together as one
So eat up the feast, drink the champagne
And when we've all gone away we'll remember today

We'll remember today for humorous features
Of a best man's attempt at one of those speeches
For stuffing our faces and wetting our lips
For a generous haul of wedding day gifts

Yes we'll remember today as a day of excesses
We'll remember those girls squeezed into dresses
Wearing their hats and new shoes too tight
They'll dance in bare feet by the end of the night

We'll remember today whatever may come
Let's drink a toast to everyone
To all present guests and some dear absent ones
Let's be glad and we can say we'll remember today

We'll remember today for the dance of the couple
To their favourite song a smooch and a shuffle
A kiss for the bride in the arms of the groom
And a round of applause from all in the room

Then we'll drink and we'll drink and we'll drink once again
And then when we've done we'll be on our way
And at last they can go on their honeymoon
Not a moment too soon... we'll remember today

about

Glyn Bailey UK

It takes particular life level of experience to produce an album like 2059. Growing up in a shabby sea-side town, absorbing old films and half-digested biographies, various faltering careers (bed salesman, MP's assistant), are the backdrop to his music. Nowadays Glyn can been seen performing live with longstanding musical partner Phil Senior on bass and Lizz Beahan on violin as 'The Beholden'. ... more
