Cue Sheet

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Circle left
I'm getting married in the morning
Ding dong the bells are going to chime

Walk all round your corner, see saw round your lady
Men star right one time
Turn partner left why she's so pretty (once and a half)
Four ladies chain across the town
Heads lead to the right, circle to a line
Lines of four go up and back with you
Go right & left thru, slide thru, dosado
Full around and then you do a spin chain thru
Girls double circulate in the morning
Girls turn back and couples promenade
*We've got to hurry, you know how mothers worry
Well, get me to the dance on time


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Now kick up a rumpus, but don't lose the compass

*It's going to be a whopper so pull out the stopper

*Girls come and kiss me, show me how you'll miss me


TAG

Get me to the dance, 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.
