MERIAH as recorded by Gus Elen 1906 Meriah, Meriah, I'm awaitin' for you now, Our weddin' mornin' 'as arrived, it's time to take the vow. Don't forget that time is money and money is time, they say, Remember this 'ere josser's come to throw 'is self away! Don't forget that these clothes are pinched, Do be quick or I'll get 'alf-inched! Now then Meriah, don't forget the time, 'Ere I am to change yer name, proper prim and prime! Buck up, old beauty, the parson wants 'is fee, So don't forget to bring it and a couple o' bob for me! Meriah, Meriah, don't forget old pals and boys, They're anxious and they're waitin' now to wish us married joys! They brought some parcels wiv 'em, Come and see, there's quite a score. There's a cradle and a baby's cart, Whoever are they for? Are they meant for me and you? If they are, what shall we do? Now then Meriah, don't forget the time, 'Ere I am to change yer name, proper prim and prime! Buck up, old sporty, the parson wants 'is fee, So don't forget to bring it and I'll buy some beer for me! Meriah, Meriah, oh you are my turtle dove, For breakfast we'll 'ave kidneys in our own abode of love. Just you think what you'll be losin' If you don't gert spliced to me! Ain't they sent your clean things 'ome yet From the laundery? If the orange blossom's dead, Wear some deep seaweed, dear, instead! Now then Meriah, don't forget the time, 'Ere I am to change yer name, proper prim and prime! Buck up, old currant, the parson wants 'is fee, So 'urry up and don't forget and come along o' me! Now then Meriah, don't forget the time, 'Ere I am to change yer name, proper prim and prime! Buck up, old beauty, the parson wants 'is fee, So don't forget to bring it and a couple o' bob for me!
