CHUCK BERRY PLAYS THIS IN THE KEY OF  “ C “

[Verse 1]
          C
It was a teenage wedding, and the old folks wished them well 
                                                    G     G7
You could see that Pierre did truly love the mademoiselle 
            G                                              G7
And now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel bell, 
 G                                    G7                         C    G7
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell 

[Verse 2]
C
They furnished off an apartment with a two room Roebuck sale 
                                                      G   G7
The coolerator was crammed with TV dinners and ginger ale,
         G                                                     G7
But when Pierre found work, the little money comin' worked out well 
 G                                    G7                         C    G7
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell 

[Verse 3]
C
They had a hi-fi phono, boy, did they let it blast 
                                                   G   G7
Seven hundred little records, all rock, rhythm and jazz 
             G                                           G7
But when the sun went down, the rapid tempo of the music fell 
 G                                    G7                         C     G7
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell 

[Verse 4]
C
They bought a souped-up jitney, 'twas a cherry red '53, 
                                                        G  G7
They drove it down to Orleans to celebrate the anniversary 
       G                                                  G7
It was there that Pierre was married to the lovely mademoiselle 
 G                                    G7                         C      G7
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell
