Don’t have a lot of hope here, but thought I would try.
My grandfather (born in 1894) used to sing this cute little song to everyone before they got married. He and my grandma were married for 58 years before she passed away and he never stopped loving her, but he had a very mischievious side (it’s where I get it from).
I’m trying to find the song performed ANYWHERE or at least get all the lyrics and I can’t find it. So, I hoped someone in here would know it.
It starts out “Do you take this woman for your lawful wife?” I do, I do.
“Do you promise to cherish her for all your life?” I do, I do.
Then the preaher goes off about he was married many years ago on the same day and gave the man a chance to get away.
More lyrics are “Do you promise to love, to honor and obey? Do you know you’re swearing your young life away? Do you know this means to bed at 10 O’Clock? You’ll have to hide your money in your sock. Do you know it’s just like jumping off the dock? ” But the poor, young boob could only smile and say, “I do, I do”
It always made me giggle as a little girl and I wanted to sing it for my daughter. Any help is appreciated.
