John DenverDance Little Jean

I played a weddin' for the money and I wished I could have told the bride and groom Just what I think of marriage and what's in store after the honeymoon And I was grumblin'to the dancers 'bout how men and women ought to live apart And how a promise never made could not be broken and could never break a heart Suddenly from out of nowhere, this little girl came danc'in across the floor And all her crinolines were billowing beneath the skirt of calico she wore Oh what a joy fell on the honored guests, each one of them was draw into her dream And they laughed and stamped and clapped their hands and hollered at her, "Dance Little Jean" And they said, "Dance Little Jean this day is for you Two people that ya love stood up to say, 'I do'" "Dance Little Jean a prayer that ya had Was answered today your mamma's marryin' your dad" Well, this cynic's heart just melted as I figur'd what this get together meant And how it ended years of tears and sad confusion that the little girl had spent They told the band to pack it up about time the couple cut the cake But we played as long as they stayed for love and laughs and Little Jeanie's sake And we played "Dance Little Jean this day is for you Two people that you love stood up to say, 'I do'" "Dance Little Jean a prayer that ya had Was answered today your mamma's marryin' your dad" We said "Dance Little Jean this day is for you Two people that you love stood up to say, 'I do'" "Dance Little Jean a prayer that ya had Was answered today your mamma's marryin' your dad"
