The Lyrics

(Verse 1)
A long, long time ago, I can still recall,
When I ordered love through a catalog,
And I knew if I paid the price,
I'd find my perfect paradise,
But reality didn't match the photos on the wall.

I clicked "add to cart" with hopeful eyes,
Dreaming of love from distant skies,
But when she arrived, it wasn't the same,
The mail order bride, she brought me pain.

(Chorus)
So, bye-bye to my mail order bride,
Drove my hopes to the airport, but my heart cried,
And them good old dreams were singing "why, oh why?",
Singing, "This'll be the day that you see,
Love can't be bought with a fee."

(Verse 2)
Did you order love on the internet?
And did it turn out to be a regret?
If the package arrived, what did you get?
Well, I know that you longed for affection,
But love can't be bought in that direction,
It takes more than a mere selection,
To build a true connection.

(Chorus)
So, bye-bye to my mail order bride,
Drove my hopes to the airport, but my heart cried,
And them good old dreams were singing "why, oh why?",
Singing, "This'll be the day that you see,
Love can't be bought with a fee."

(Bridge)
Now, for many years, I've learned the truth,
That genuine love is the sweetest fruit,
It blossoms naturally, from the heart,
Not through a transaction, just playing a part.

(Verse 3)
Oh, and as I look back on that fateful day,
When the mail order bride came my way,
I realize love can't be forced or bought,
It's a delicate dance, a lesson taught.

So let's embrace the beauty of chance,
Find love through real-life circumstance,
No more seeking love through a trade,
True connection can't be mail-ordered, it's made.

(Chorus)
So, bye-bye to my mail order bride,
Drove my hopes to the airport, but my heart cried,
And them good old dreams were singing "why, oh why?",
Singing, "This'll be the day that you see,
Love can't be bought with a fee."

(Outro)
We were singing,
Bye-bye to my mail order bride,
Drove my hopes to the airport, but my heart cried,
And them good old dreams were singing "why, oh why?",
Singing, "This'll be the day that you see,
Love can't be bought with a fee."
