“Mister Snow (Reprise)” LYRICS
When you walk down the aisle
All the heads will turn.
What a rustlin’ of bonnets there’ll be!
And you’ll try to smile,
But your cheeks will burn,
And your eyes’ll get so dim you ken hardly see!
With your orange blossoms quiverin’ in your hand,
You will stumble to the spot where the parson is.
Then your finger will be ringed with a golden band,
And you’ll know the feller’s yours—and you are his.
When I marry Mister Snow—
What a day!
What a day!
The flowers’ll be buzzin’ with the hum of bees—
The birds’ll make a racket in the churchyard trees—
When I marry Mister Snow.
Then it’s off to home we’ll go—
On the way!
And both of us’ll look a little dreamy-eyed,
A-drivin’ to a cottage by the oceanside
Where the salty breezes blow—
You and Mister Snow!
He’ll carry me ’cross the threshold,
And I’ll be as meek as a lamb.
Then he’ll set me on my feet
And I’ll say, kinda sweet:
“Well, Mister Snow, here I am!”
Then I’ll kiss her so she’ll know—
That everything’ll be as right as right ken be,
A-livin’ in a cottage by the sea with me,
Where the salty breezes blow!
I love Miss Pipp’ridge and I aim to
Make Miss Pipp’ridge change her name to
Missus Enoch Snow!
