It Shoulda Been You the Musical - I Never Wanted This Lyrics

"I Never Wanted This" is a song from the musical 'It Shoulda Been You' performed by Lisa Howard (Jenny). Lyrics by Hargrove and Michael Cooper.

JENNY:
Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
Something blue-ish... Well it's true-ish
When you're jewish
And thirty-two... ish.

You've been waiting for this day
Panty-hose, damn

On this day of celebration
When you've barely slept a wink
On this day of pure elation
When you sure can use a drink
On this day of aggrevation
When you think

I never wanted this
The creamy silk and satin
I never wanted this
The flowers and the fuss

What's the use of getting married?
Forget the wedding cake
And cook the rice you've planned to throw
Cause you're making a mistake

Til' we pray and we fight
For a wedding that is joyus
For a day dressed in white
That might quite possibly destroy us

So you dream of those vows you'll say
While you're throwing your life away
All of this for a steady lay

I never wanted this
Who wants all this attention?
I never wanted this
Make a noose and tie the knot

I never wanted to get married
Never wanted to get married
Never wanted to get married

JUDY: [spoken]
Jenny, take that veil off. You'll stretch it out so much it won't fit your sister

JENNY:
And I'm not

[spoken]
Who am I kidding? I wouldn't fit into this if I was cremated.

JUDY: [spoken]
Jenny, I forgot. Did you cancel the panini station?

JENNY: [spoken]
Yes!

JUDY: [spoken)
Well call them back. What kind of wedding doesn't have a panini station?
People will talk.

JENNY: [spoken]
Whatever...

[Thanks to Jesper for lyrics]
