I heard that you were getting married
I always knew that you'd do well
You're a legendary beauty
From our small provincial town

Ilocos joined to Leyte
Two important families
A glorious occasion
A foretold destiny

I followed in the morning papers
How exciting it has been
The courtship and the whirlwind romance
For the sweetest of beauty queens

He's crazy for you
Who wouldn't be, I'm sure?
And nothing matters more than that
And you'll never be poor no more

How she looked when she passed by
How she looked when she passed by
I feel like I'm watching history
Living before my eyes
Many years from now
We'll recall just how
How she looked when she passed by

I know that you are in there somewhere
Whole Man drawing
Letters get misplaced in the mail
Guess that there was some confusion
Amidst those throngs and swells

Did you see me outside?
Did you see me wave
When you passed in your car?
Ah, well, that's okay

How she looked when she passed by
How she looked when she passed by
Feel like I'm watching history
Living before my eyes
Many years from now
We'll recall just how
How she looked when she passed by
