You Never Can Tell (C'est La Vie)
Chuck Berry


It was a teenage wedding,
and the old folks wished them well
You could see that Pierre
did truly love the mademoiselle
And now the young monsieur
and madame have rung the chapel bell,
"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
The coolerator was crammed
with TV dinners and ginger ale,
But when Pierre found work,
the little money comin' worked out well
"C'est la vie", say the old folks,
it goes to show you never can tell

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

They bought a souped-up jitney,
'twas a cherry red '53,
They drove it down New Orleans
to celebrate their anniversary
It was there that Pierre was married
to the lovely mademoiselle
"C'est la vie", say the old folks,
it goes to show you never can tell

(Emmylou Harris)
It was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished 'em well
You could see that Pierre did truly love the madamoiselle
Now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel bell
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can tell.

They furnished off an appartment with a two room Roebuck sale
The coolerator was crammed with TV dinners and gingerale
But when Pierre found work the little money comin' worked out well
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can tell.

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

--- Instrumental ---

They bought a souped up jitney twas a cherry red fifty three
They drove it to New Orleans to celebrate their anniversary
It was there where Pierre was wadded to that lovely madamoiselle
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can tell.

It was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished 'em well
You could see that Pierre did truly love the madamoiselle
Now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel bell
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can tell.

C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can tell.
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can tell...
