  • Looks like everybody's here
    Had to put some foldin' chairs in the vestibule
    Yeah, it's gettin' full
    Even old Aunt Ruby came
    Her first time on an airplane
    It's her sister's girl
    She wouldn't miss it for the world

    And all them kids jumpin' in the pews
    And Mr. Charlie in his lime-green suit
    'Is a handsome man'
    Remarks Widow Callahan
    Uncle Joe and Uncle Jake
    Haven't spoken since '98
    Just said, 'Hello'
    It's a good day to let it go

    So let the angels gather
    Let the music play
    Let the preacher get to preachin' all the "do you take's"
    Love is a beautiful thing
    Throw the rice in the air
    Let the church bells ring
    Tie the cans to the back of that limousine
    Love is a beautiful thing

    Daddy's waitin' with the bride
    As she helps him with his tie
    She sees a tear
    He says, 'Man, it's hot in here' hmm
    He hugs his little girl and asks,
    'How did you grow up so fast?
    God, I wish your momma could be here for this'

    And everybody stands and smiles
    As she comes walkin' down the aisle
    In her momma's gown
    And Daddy breaks on down
    Gran and Gramps in the second row
    Stood right there fifty years ago
    And said their vows
    Yeah, I guess it's workin' out

    So let the angels gather
    Let the music play
    Let the preacher get to preachin' all the "do you take's"
    Love is a beautiful thing
    Throw the rice in the air
    Let the church bells ring
    Tie the cans to the back of that limousine
    Love is a beautiful thing

    A little table full'a gifts
    Catering's covered dish
    And the wedding band
    Well, that's on her hand
    And Tommy's teasin' Lorelei
    He pushed her down and made her cry
    And neither one knows
    The day will come

    When the angels gather
    And the music plays
    And the preacher gets to preachin' all the "do you take's"
    Love is a beautiful thing
    Throw the rice in the air
    Let the church bells ring
    Tie the cans to the back of that limousine
    Love
