Lyrics

VERSE 1
I’m blue, so blue,
Can’t get interested in a thing I do;
If you only knew,
The dreams that I’ve been dreaming of you all night through;
Only yesterday I dreamed I lost you,
I awoke and found myself in tears;
One week, seven little days;
Seem like seven years.

CHORUS
I can’t wait until next Sunday morning,
I’ll be so happy when the preacher makes you mine;
You love the melodies, of birds and honey bees;
But tell me what could be sweeter than the choir singing,
While the wedding bells are ding-dong dinging;
On our way to church next Sunday morning,
We’ll hear the people whisper, “don’t they both look fine;”
I may be nervous for a while, and during service I won’t smile,
But I’ll be doggone happy when the preacher makes you mine.
mine.

VERSE 2
Amen, amen,
Let me hear that word then I’ll be glad again;
Till then, you know when,
I’ll be just like a lion in a lonely den;
Bought the ring and ev’rything is ready,
All I’ve got to do is slip it on;
One week, seven little days;
Wish that they were gone.

CHORUS
