To the Aisle

Album: The Five Satins Sing (1957)
Charted: 25
  • First a boy and a girl meet each other
    Then they sit down to talk for a while
    In your heart, you'll want her for a lover
    While each step, draws you closer to the aisle

    You may start with a simple conversation
    My darling, please put me on trial
    She says, yes and your heart starts beating
    While each step, draws you closer to the aisle

    You ask her if she loves you she answers, "I do"
    Your heart starts glowing inside
    And then you will know she is just for you
    While each step, draws you closer to the aisle

    Then you put a ring on her finger
    And the tears start flowing awhile
    Then you'll know she's yours forever
    While each step, draws you closer to the aisle

    She says, yes and your heart starts beating
    While each step, draws you closer to the aisleWriter/s: BILLY DAWN SMITH, STUART WIENER
