No. 26 - Sextet - "Wedding March."

MIDI File

Edna & Brian: Oh, what a splendid thing,
To have a wedding ring,
Hilda & de l'Orme: And to see people bring
Presents galore.
Ada & Cheyne: Marches we've heard a lot,
But when to church we've got,
All: We'll march to one we've not
Marched to before.
One, two, three, four, five, six,
Oh! the wedding march is the best of fun.
As we've won each other,
We shall soon be one,
Walking up the aisle,
All as stiff as starch,
We shall soon hear the tune
Of the beautiful wedding march.
   
Edna & Brian: There are composers few
Who can write marches new,
Hilda & de l'Orme: But there is one man who
Stands quite alone.
Ada & Cheyne: Monckton or Sousa too,
Tho' you are splendid, you
All: Can't hold a candle to F. Mendelssohn.
One, two, three, four, five, six,
Oh! the wedding march is the best of fun.
As we've won each other,
We shall soon be one,
Walking up the aisle,
All as stiff as starch,
We shall soon hear the tune
Of the beautiful wedding march.
