The Lyrics

It's finally your sister's big day..... but the reception isn't exactly....um....alive....
It's not a funeral so don't blubber anyone
It's not a funeral so have fun with everyone
And when I see you wearin' black i'm very stunned
It's not a funeral so why you cry?
No-one's died

It's not a funeral so please shout it's not a crime
But when I see you moping about you've crossed the line
If you should ever taste the punch tell everyone
It's not a funeral
So play some party games
I'm not the one to blame
So just chill out have a good time
Help blow up balloons
Greet the bride and groom
Why can't this wedding end in smiles?

It's not a funeral don't be sad please anyone
It's not a funeral so be glad for everyone
Can I interest you in a cake at any time?
It's not a funeral
So thank the lovely bride and groom
Woah-wooah-wooah
woah-woah
(repeat woahing until fade)

A wacky take on the original song, indeed!

DAK, Weddings aren't the funerals. The Divorces are. 5's.

Maybe it was a shotgun wedding.

fantastic idea, DAK, and well-executed (not that it's a funeral or anything) - 555

LOL! Good one, DAK! We hate weddings, but this is one hilarious song! 5's
Billy Boyd - May 02, 2005 - Report this comment
DKTOS, but this was easy to follow and was funny. Yet another good one from you, Kid. Fives.

Good timing: My sister actually did get married on May 1. And we got through the day without any disasters. Now, if I can only find someone... without all the nasty habits of some of the girls in my parodies... and who won't say, "Oh, God, that was great, Orlando!"...
Arwen - May 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Um...I have NO idea who you could be talking about, Mr. Pacholek. I certainly would never utter that phrase. VIN is Great...Orlando is Fabulous...

Oh, and by the way, nice job, DAK...=)

(SOTM) I'm still wondering what's in the punch... Although the punchline was great! 5's

(SOTM) Funny and quirky. Nice job!
Red Ant - June 09, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Already voted. At the time this was posted DAK, the Jennifer Wilbanks thing was going on in the US, which boosted the funny for me because you probably didn't know about it. Great work.

(SOTM) Give this parody to the next wedding singer you meet. :-)

Clever title, clever parody, especially considering that this song came out more than 20 years before you were born.
Peter Andersson - June 17, 2005 - Report this comment
More fun than an open casket funeral.

Just kidding. I actually cranked up the MP3 and sang along. Great title sub. I'd like to see a wedding band crank this one out at a lifeless reception.
Mikey Squirrel - June 27, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I can relate to this, considering I just got married recently. Perhaps this would have spiced up the reception a little. Also this could go with the upcoming movie The Wedding Crashers. Regardless, very clever parody, DAK. Tri-Fives.

How'd I miss this one? Great rhyming and a whimsical concept. I guess it's '4 Funerals and a Funeral'...
