Lyrics for "Love Ain’t Practical"

Verse
Ten minutes late and still drunk from the night before
A church full of heads all turned at once when he pushed open the doors
The light of a late October afternoon flooded the room
Even the bride had to squint her eyes to be sure that it was the groom

A pale blue fifty-five Cadillac limousine
The coolest car that she’d ever seen
They ran out of the church and climbed in the back
He picked rice from her hair as she sat on his lap

Chorus
She dumped a dozen boys or more
All of them with prospects better than the one she fell the hardest for
In the end she made her call
It would be her glory or her downfall
‘Cause Love, Love ain’t practical at all

Verse 2
He plays in a band; he’s out late every night
To pay the bills she went to work in a job she doesn’t like
She comes home; he’s sleeping by the TV
Piles of dirty laundry and dishes in the sink

[Chorus]

Verse 3
He drinks even more than her daddy ever did
She took the test this morning, they’re gonna’ have a kid

[Chorus]
