Wedding Song

Anna, Jamie, Dasha, Toma and Cara sang a special little number for Jeanne and Kolya at the reception.

Unfortunately, the first verse is not included in the recording, but all of the words as orginally written are as follows:

Celebrate, Jeanne gettin’ married
Celebrate, gettin’ married in Ukraine
Celebrate, Jeanne gettin’ married
She’s in love:  Everything’s alright
She’s in love:  Everything’s alright

Springtime 1983
