Wedding Songs - First Dance - Louis Armstrong

Wedding Songs

We love all the great music that is played at weddings and really enjoy getting to see the couples personality come through in their first dance. We are creating a collection of our favorite songs on our Wedding Songs page.

We decided that we would start with one of the most popular first dance musicians of all time Mr. Louis Armstrong and 'Bout Time. Enjoy!

How can you not love these lyrics:


'Bout time, 'bout time we had the taste of wasted time 
Like love à deux, I wasted time alone with you 
'Bout time we two were livin' out a lovely dream come true 
'Bout you, 'bout me, 'bout love, ye-e-s-s-s 
'Bout time, 'bout time we spent good time with no one near 
To watch me while I say a little somethin' in your ear 
'Bout how I care, 'bout how I wanna make my feelin's clear 
About you, 'bout me, 'bout love 
We're in deep water, Darlin', clear over my head 
'Bout time to either sink or swim, let's swim, 'nuff said 
'Bout time, 'bout time we didn't have to always steal a kiss 
'Bout time, 'bout time I had my arms around your waste like this 
My whole life through I wanna make you feel the way I do 
'Bout you, 'bout me, 'bout love
