Get Me To The Church On Time    (1956)

There's just a few more hours
That's all the time you've got
A few more hours
Before they tie the knot

There are drinks and girls all over London, and
I've gotta track 'em down in just a few more hours!
I'm getting married in the morning
Ding dong! The bells are gonna chime
Pull out the stopper!
Let's have a whopper!
But get me to the church on time!

I gotta be there in the mornin'
Spruced up and lookin' in me prime
Girls, come and kiss me
Show how you'll miss me
But get me to the church on time!

If I am dancin'
Roll up the floor
If I am whistlin'
Whewt me out the door!

For I'm gettin' married in the mornin'
Ding dong! the bells are gonna chime
Kick up a rumpus
But don't lose the compass
And get me to the church
Get me to the church
For Gawd's sake, get me to the church on time!

I'm getting married in the morning
Ding dong! the bells are gonna chime
Drug me or jail me
Stamp me and mail me
But get me to the church on time!

I gotta be there in the morning
Spruced up and lookin' in me prime
Some bloke who's able
Lift up the table
And get me to the church on time!

If I am flying
Then shoot me down
If I am wooin'
Get her out of town!

For I'm getting married in the morning
Ding dong! the bells are gonna chime
Feather and tar me
Call out the Army
But get me to the church
Get me to the church
For Gawd's sake, get me to the church on time!

Starlight is reelin' home to bed now
Mornin' is smearin' up the sky
London is wakin'
Daylight is breakin'
Good luck, old chum
Good health, goodbye

I'm gettin' married in the mornin'
Ding dong! the bells are gonna chime...
Hail and salute me
Then haul off and boot me...
And get me to the church,
Get me to the church...
For Gawd's sake, get me to the church on time!
