Text of Some Sunday Morning
Some Sunday morning it's going to be
Some Sunday morning for someone and me.
Bells will be chiming an old melody,
Spec'lly for someone and me.
There'll be an organ playing,
Friends and relations will stare,
Say, can't you hear them saying,
"Gee, what a peach of a pair!"
Some Sunday morning we'll walk down the aisle,
He'll be so nervous and I'll try to smile,
Things sure look rosy for someone and me,
Some Sunday morning, you'll see.
