The bells are ringing for me and my gal, The birds are singing for me and my gal, Ev'ry body's been knowing to a wedding they're going, And for weeks they've been sewing, Ev'ry Susie and Sal, They're congregating for me and my gal, The parson's waiting for me and my gal, And sometime, I'm goin' to build a little home for two, for three or four or more, in Love land for me and my gal
What a beautiful day, for a wedding in May, see the people all stare, at the lovable pair, she's a vision of joy, he's the luckiest boy, In his wedding array, hear him smilingly say.
See the relatives there, Looking over the pair, They can tell at a glance, It's a loving romance, It's a wonderful sight, as the fam'lies unite, Gee! it makes a boy proud, as he says to the crowd.
