[Verse 1]
We’ve been keeping company quite a while
I see the neighbors smile
Each time I call around here
Dear My friends have been pumpin’ me and I know
They think me mighty slow
But I’ll fool ‘em all yet

Some Sunday Morning when the weather’s fine
The song bird’s singing and the world in rhyme
I’ve plann’d a wedding Dearie just for you
The news is spreading that I’ll be there too with bells on

Dress’d up in muslin what a bride you’ll be
Each Si and Hiram Sure will envy me
The village joker I suppose
Will hand us baby clothes
Some Sunday Morning when wedding bells chime

[Verse 2]
Old maids have been schooling you right along
They say that you’re all wrong
To waste your time upon me Gee
My friends say I’m foolin’ you they don’t dream
We have a little scheme
That will open their eyes
