This is a cover of a Jesse Riggs original.

lyrics

There's the princess ready to be wed,
With her diamond tiara adorning her head
But her thoughts do strictly dread loss of virginity

CHORUS:
And she never wants to go home,
No she never, ever wants to go home
When the fanfare plays everyone falls to their knees

There's the prince, his vows have been said,
Eager to take his princess to bed
But his thoughts do strictly dread infinite fidelity

CHORUS

There's the Bishop ready to preside
With his lovely little altar boys by his side
But he's already dead inside from spiritual duplicity

CHORUS

There's the crowd flanking either side,
Ready to give three cheers to the bride
But their already dead inside from toil in perpetuity

CHORUS

All the pomp and circumstance
Might stave off despair perhaps
But in the end will only enhance grim reality

At least there's a home to go home to,
At least there is a home to go to
When the fanfare plays everyone must go home
