Song Lyric Sunday – 13 June 2021 – White Wedding

Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday gives us the chance to share familiar, and sometimes not so familiar, songs. This week the prompt is to find a song that includes Greet, Hey, or Howdy.

If you fancy sharing one of your favourite songs you can find out how to participate, and also listen to all the great entries, here.

Last week was wedding related in that the prompt words were Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue. Since I never approached anything near a wedding it seems appropriate that this week I should try to catch up and go for White Wedding. It is a bride’s privilege to be late. I just hope the groom waited!

This is a song by Billy Idol that was released as the second single from his self-titled studio album in 1982. Although not his most successful song it is probably his most recognisable one. It certainly contains many Hey’s! I hope you enjoy it.

White Wedding

Billy Idol

Hey little sister, what have you done
Hey little sister, who’s the only one
Hey little sister, who’s your superman
Hey little sister, who’s the one you want
Hey little sister, shotgun

It’s a nice day to start again
It’s a nice day for a white wedding
It’s a nice day to start again

Hey little sister, who is it you’re with
Hey little sister, what’s your vice and wish
Hey little sister, shotgun (oh yeah)
Hey little sister, who’s your superman
Hey little sister, shotgun

It’s a nice day to start again
It’s a nice day for a white wedding
It’s a nice day to start again

Take me back home, yeah

Hey little sister, what have you done
Hey little sister, who’s the only one
I’ve been away for so long (so long)
I’ve been away for so long (so long)
I let you go for so long

It’s a nice day to start again
Come on, it’s a nice day for a white wedding
It’s a nice day to start again

There is nothin’ fair in this world, baby
There is nothin’ safe in this world
And there’s nothin’ sure in this world
And there’s nothin’ pure in this world
Look for something left in this world
Start again

Come on
It’s a nice day for a white wedding
It’s a nice day to start again
It’s a nice day to start again
It’s a nice day to start again
