Chapel of Love


Today’s the day
We’ll say “I do”
And we’ll never be lonely anymore.

— The Dixie Cups, “Chapel of Love”

For decades, I thought this was just a happy, sappy little ditty . . . now I wonder if it isn’t one of the most bitterly ironic songs ever written.

We’ll love until
The end of time
And we’ll never be lonely anymore . . .
