  • Jamie, Harry, Friends
    There's just a few more hours.
    That's all the time you've got.
    A few more hours
    Before they tie the knot.

    Doolittle
    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 an rumpus
    But don't lost the compass;
    And get me to the church,
    Get me to the church,
    For Gawd's sake, get me to the church on time!

    Doolittle and Everyone
    I'm getting married in the morning
    Ding dong! the bells are gonna chime.
    Doolittle
    Drug me or jail me,
    Stamp me and mail me.

    All
    But get me to the church on time!
    I gotta be there in the morning
    Spruced up and lookin' in me prime.

    Doolittle
    Some bloke who's able
    Lift up the table,

    All
    And get em to the church on time!

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

    All
    For I'm getting married in the morning!
    Ding dong! the bells are gonna chime.

    Doolittle
    Feather and tar me;
    Call out the Army;
    But get me to the church.

    All
    Get me to the church...

    Doolittle
    For Gawd's sake, get me to the church on time!

    Harry and Everyone
    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.

    Doolittle
    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!Writer/s: ALAN JAY LERNER, FREDERICK LOEWE
