The Boss’ Wedding Coat

IMG_0290“Then I got Mary pregnant
And man that was all she wrote
And for my 19th birthday
I got a union card and a wedding coat” ~ Bruce Springsteen

Burlington Coat Factory: “May I help you?”
Bruce Springsteen: “Yeah, I’m here to get a wedding coat.”
Burlington Coat Factory: “A what?”
Bruce Springsteen: “A wedding coat.”
Burlington Coat Factory: “We got Winter coats, peacoats, overcoats, but there’s no such thing as a wedding coat. There’s a wedding tux, a morning suit that the groom wears, but we don’t sell them. We sell coats.”
Bruce Springsteen: “Never mind. Can you think of a better rhyme for ‘wrote’?”
Burlington Coat Factory: “Try next door at the Burlington Song Factory.”

Googling “wedding coat” led me here. I was sure that wedding coat was just an old phrase for tux. Turns out I’ve been lied to by The Boss.

Heard you many times on B&T Pat. Thanks for the laughs.
