NO WEDDING BELLS FOR ME (Music: Seymour Furth / Lyrics: E.P. Moran & Will A. Heelan) Billy Murray - 1907 Bob Roberts - 1907 Fair woman first was built ad lib on some instalment plan Her main foundation was the rib of poor unlucky man Each man to get that rib of his must wed some maiden fair But not for me, although there is a lot of ribs to spare No wedding bells for me, I'm as happy as can be Let the others all pick their ribs, as for me I don't like spare ribs Gee Whiz! I'm glad I'm free, no wedding bells for me My friend said, "Batch, come dine with me, my wife's a splendid cook" When Missus Sauer saw me, she just gave his nibs a look A dozen kids began to shout while at the table there The baby took some sauerkraut and rubbed it in my hair No wedding bells for me, I'm as happy as can be Tempt me not with trial marriage, I'll not push a babby carriage Gee Whiz! I'm glad I'm free, no wedding bells for me A girl who held an infant child, was hanging to a strap I had a seat and when she smiled, I took her on my lap I'm speaking of the baby, not the lady understand I scarcely had her when I got the laugh to beat the band No wedding bells for me, I'm as happy as can be Down my spine, I felt a shiver, someone whistled Swanee River Gee Whiz! I'm glad I'm free, no wedding bells for me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2016)
