 C  
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.'  
  
               C  
They furnished off an apartment from 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 wel.  
                                      G7                         C     G  
'C'est la vie,' say the old folks, 'it goes to show you never can tell.'  
  
           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 that Pierre was married to the lovely mademoiselle.  
                                      G7                         C     G  
'C'est la vie,' say the old folks, 'it goes to show you never can tell.'
