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 'I'm 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!

Mornin' is smearin' up the sky.

Daylight is breakin'.
Good luck, old chum,

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!
