I'm gettin' married in the morning

Ding-dong the bells are gonna chime

We'll have a whopper, pull out the stopper

Get me to the church on time

I've got to get there in the morning

Spruced up and lookin' in my prime

Pull out your compass, kick up a rompass

Get me to the church on time

If I am dancing roll up the floor

If I am whistling, out the door

I'm gettin'' married in the morning

Ding-ding-dong they're gonna chime

Girls come and kiss me, say that you'll miss me

Get me to the church on time
