Your Picture in the Paper lyrics

Album: Harold, Lew, Phil, and Don 1976

I saw your picture in the paper Sunday morning.
Lord, you sure looked pretty in your gown.
The smile you were wearing, was the one I remembered.
And you're hair was never prettier, except when it was down.

Monologue-
"Yeah, I saw your picture in the paper Sunday morning.
and to say the least, it took me by surprise.
I must have set and looked at it, for, Lord I don't know how long,
just thinking what was going on behind those eyes.
I read the whole description, about the music and the bridesmaids.
I bet your daddy threw a fit when he had to get dressed up
in that tux and tie.
And I read where your sister came home from Texas, I know you
were glad to see her.
And knowing your Mama, she probably cried.
But then, so did I."

I saw your picture in the paper Sunday morning.
By then the honeymoon, was almost through.
So now you've made your bed, and I hope you lie well in it.
And I hope you'll both be happy, you see I still lie well too.

I saw your picture in the paper Sunday morning.
