Song Lyric Sunday (Big Day)..

This is my last contribution to Song Lyric Sunday for Jim Adams’s blog. This week’s prompt…Promise/Vow/Oath Days Between. Talking music just really ain’t my bag.

BIG DAY By XTC

It’s your big day, your big day
So you want to tie the knot
Tie it tight, don’t let it rot, the memory of this day
Are you deafened by the bells
Could be heaven, could be hell
In a cell for two
Big day come and big day go
Life goes on after the show
But will your love have the fire and glow
Like on the big day
Statistics they don’t say a lot
But can you keep what you have got forever together
There’s a lesson to be learnt
Many fingers have been burnt with the touch of gold
Love can come and love can go
What your chance is I don’t know
But if you have love then let it show like on the big day
You’re a new recruit
The big day
In your wedding suit
There’s a lesson to be learnt
Many fingers have been burnt with the touch of gold
Big day come and big day go
What your chance is I don’t know
But if you have love then let it show like on the big day
Yea you’re looking fine
Big day
Sign on the dotted line
Big day
It’s your wedding march today, big day
You’re the new recruit
Big day
In your wedding suit
Big day
Yea you’re looking fine
Big day
Sign on the dotted line
Big day
It’s your wedding march today
Big day
Your big day
Big day

Songwriters: Colin Moulding7

Big Day taken from The English Band XTC’s Biggest selling Album Skylarking. An album in 1986 that is most known for the controversial agnostic song Dear God. Almost every song on this album is a sonic treat, although I do find the song Supergirl quit insipid and ridiculously annoying. Every song blends seamlessly into the next, it is definitely up there as one of my all time favorite albums. I was introduced to XTC from watching a little known Brittish Documentary on the punk music of the early 80’s called URG! A MUSIC WAR, a film I rented on VHS in the 90’s.
