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 slow you never can tell

They furnished off an apartment
With a two room Roebuck sale
The coolerator was crammed
With T.V. dimmers 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 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
T’was a cherry-red fifty nine [three]
They drove it down to New Orleans
To celebrate their anniversary
It was there that Pierre
Was wedded to the lovely mademoiselle
“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 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 slow you never can tell

“C’est la vie”, say the old folks
It goes to slow you never can tell
“C’est la vie”, say the old folks
It goes to slow you never can tell

The History Guy:
History Deserves to Be Remembered

This popped up somewhere and I was surprised to see the changed look of the History Guy – it’s only been a month since I checked my subscriptions – but, then I saw this was from 2017. Whew.

More, and more recent, History Guy, below the fold.

I went down the YouTube rabbit hole and somehow landed on this bit of early 70’s animated psychedelia. Don’t eat the Ronald Reagan acid!

Bandersnatch: The entire 1970s was a conspiracy to give us all epileptic seizures.
