I saw some folks at the bar tonight,
They were laughin' real hard.
Seems somebody had seen the light,
So sang the tipsy bard.
Friends gathered round and shouted loud
To rise above the din
But a hush came down and everybody bowed
When the princess walked on in.
She was hotter than a pistol and right smart too
And she sashayed 'cross the floor.
She sat right down at my left side
And shot my esprit de corps
Up through the roof and I don't mind sayin'
That I was proud as proud can be
To have on my arm a pretty girl swayin'
And I'm sure that you'd agree.
So we're gettin' married sometime soon
Though an hour'd be too long,
So I'll hold on tight and keep on wooin'
And singin' loverly songs.
The tulips'll pop right out of the ground
When the time has come to say,
"Why yes I'll take this lovely lady
For all the rest of my days!"
