Lyrics:

"Get Me To the Church On Time"

music by Frederick Loewe; lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner

 JAMIE AND HARRY:
There's just a few more hours.
That's all the time you've got;
A few more hours
Before they tie the knot.

ALFIE:
There's drinks and girls all over London
And I've gotta track 'em down
In just a few more hours.
Set 'em up, me darlin'!

I'm getting married in the mornin'!
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 got ta 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 a rumpus,
But don't lose the compass,
And get me to the church...

JAMIE AND HARRY:
Get 'im to the church...

ALFIE:
For God's sake, get me to the church on time!

ALFIE AND CHORUS:
I'm/He's getting married in the mornin'.
Ding dong! The bells are gonna chime.
Some bloke who's able
Lift up the table,
And get me to the church on time!

ALFIE:
If I am flyin',
Then shoot me down.
If I am wooin',
Get her out of town!

ALFIE AND CHORUS:
For I'm/He's getting married in the morning!
Ding dong! The bells are gonna chime.

ALFIE:
Feather and tar me;
Call out the Army;
But get me to the church.
Get me to the church.
For God's sake, get me to the church on time!

CHORUS:
He's getting married in the mornin'!
Ding dong! The bells are gonna chime.

ALFIE:
Come on!  Pull out the stopper!
Let's have a whopper!
But get me to the church on time!

CHORUS:
He's got ta be there in the mornin',
Spruced up and lookin' in 'is prime.

ALFIE:
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!

CHORUS:
For he's getting married in the mornin'.
Ding dong! The bells are gonna chime.

ALFIE:
Drug me or jail me,
Stamp me and mail me.
But get me to the church...

CHORUS:
Get him to the church...

ALFIE:
For God's sake, get me to the church on time!

[musical interlude]

CHORUS:
Girls, come and kiss 'im;
Show how you'll miss 'im.
But get him to the church on time!

[musical interlude]

CHORUS:
Kick up a rumpus,
But don't lose the compass,
And get him to the church on time!

ALFIE AND CHORUS:
If I am flyin',
Then shoot me down.
If I am wooin',
Get her out of town!

CHORUS:
He's gettin' married in the mornin'.
Ding dong! The bells are gonna chime.

HARRY:
Some bloke who's able
Lift up the table,

ALFIE:
Get me to the church on time!

CHORUS:
Get him to the church!
Get him to the church!

HARRY AND JAMIE:
Starlight is reelin' 'ome to bed now.
Mornin' is smearin' up the sky.

CHORUS:
London is wakin'.
Daylight is breakin'.
Good luck, old chum,
Good health, goodbye.

ALFIE:
I'm gettin' married in the mornin'.
Ding dong! The bells are gonna chime.

CHORUS:
Hail and salute me,
Then haul off and boot me;
And get him to the church,
Get him to the church!
For God's sake, get him to the church on time!
