Cue Sheet

FIGURE (4 times through)    A1, corner progression

Join hands, we'll circle left 'til morning
Allemande left then dosado one time
Just walk around that lady, left allemande and maybe
Grand old right & left along the line
(When you meet) you dosado, she's kind of pretty
Then promenade and boy you're doing fine
1st and 3rd wheel around, dosado the two you found
Make that ocean wave, four in line
(Now we'll) swing thru, then rock once more
Once more we'll swing thru, like you did before (rock again)
Now cross trail thru and swing a corner
Promenade her all the way this time

(The next two lines may be varied as follows)
(a) Kick up a rumpus, don't lose the compass
Just get me to the dance on time


(b) It's gonna be a whopper, so pull out the stopper
And get me to the dance on time


(c) We just got to hurry, you know how mothers worry
So get me to the dance on time


(d) Girls come and kiss me, show me how you'll miss me
So get me to the dance on time


TAG

So get me to the dance,
Yes, get me to the dance,
For Pete's sake get me to the dance on time

Get Me To The Church On Time
 
 

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!

Composed by Frederick Loewe.
Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner.
Recorded by André Previn and Shelly Manne.
