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

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

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

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