Matrimony

  • I've no wish to hurry you luv
    But have you seen the time
    It's quarter to ten and we're supposed to be there
    at nine
    I don't think the registrar
    Will be very pleased
    When we show up an hour late
    Like two frozen peas
    Both now facing for the first time
    Presently and past
    Something that begins with M
    And ends in alas
    More than not complete disaster
    Even form the start
    What could it be...
    It's Matrimony

    I know how you've dreamt about
    Being walked down the aisle
    But think of the money we'll save
    And you'll see it's worthwhile
    It won't please our mums and dads
    But they don't even know,
    Besides if they did what's the betting
    They wouldn't even go
    You and me are all that matters
    Disregard the rest
    Trust your soon to be old man
    He knows what is best
    Very shortly now there's going to be
    An answer from you
    Then one from me
    That's matrimony

    I'm truly grateful for the little things in life
    That have made me so glad
    Every other hour that I spend with you
    Is not in the least bit sad
    Quite the opposite in fact
    And if you don't believe me
    Here's the proof
    Ask me if I and I'll say "Aye, I do"

    You and me are all that matters
    Disregard the rest
    Trust your soon to be old man
    He knows what is best
    Very shortly now there's going to be
    An answer from you
    Then one from me
    That's matrimony

    Marriage-the joining together of the two people
    For better or for worse Till death them do part
