@nannydeprivedmama:I love love love this song, always have.  I’m not a good enough dancer to dance to it at the first dance, but we’ll definitely be playing it during cocktail hour (when my easily offended southern baptist family members will be with me taking pictures).  If you don’t think your guests will be offended by the sniffing undies part, then you should give him this.

He also sings “Glory of True Love”and “She is my everything”, both of which might appeal to your Fiance while without having the objectionable lyrics.

to be honest, I am not anything near conservative but if I heard the words “laid” “sniffing panties” and the like I would find it really uncomfortable. I can’t imagine how someone who DOES have delicate sensibilities would react.

I’m with shedayz on this one, although I guess it really depends on your guests, your family and everyone else present. How comfortable are you with them listening to lyrices which speak about making someone “horny’ or someone’s “balls?” For instance, I wouldn’t mind playing this son around a few friends or certain family members, but I would never play it around my grandparents or certain co-workers.

Love love love love love love love love this song.  I think it’s adorable.  And I love John Prine, I think a lot of people do, so I can see it going over well.

I think that *if* you are comfortable with the raunchier aspects of it, you should let him have his choice on this, since you’ve gotten yours for everything else.  I know if I heard this at a wedding I would LOVE it.
