WHEN I MARRY MR. SNOW (aka MR. SNOW) From the Broadway Musical "Carousel" (1945) (Richard Rodgers / Oscar Hammerstein II) Jean Darling & Jan Clayton (Broadway Production) - 1945 Margot Moser & Iva Withers (London Production) - 1950 Barbara Ruick & Shirley Jones (Film Soundtrack) - 1956 Susan Watson & Eileen Christy (Broadway Revival) - 1965 Marlyn Mason & Mary Grover (TV Production) - 1967 Barbara Cook - 1975 Sarah Brightman & Barbara Cook - 1987 Katrina Murphy & Joanna Riding (London Revival) - 1993 Audra McDonald & Sally Murphy (Broadway Revival) - 1994 Barbara Brussell - 1997 Barbara Cook - 2004 CARRIE: Julie, I've been bustin' to tell you somethin' lately. JULIE: You have? CARRIE: The reason I didn't care to tell you before is 'cause you didn't have a fella of your own. Hmm hmm... But now that you got one, I can tell you about mine! JULIE: I'm glad you gotta fella, Carrie! CARRIE: His name is Mister Snow And an upstandin' man is he He comes home ev'ry night in his round-bottomed boat With a net full of herring from the sea An almost perfect beau As refined as a girl could wish But he spends so much time in his round-bottomed boat That he can't seem to lose the smell of fish The fust time he kissed me, the whiff from his clo'es Knocked me flat on the floor of the room But now that I love him, my heart's in my nose And fish is my fav'rite perfume Last night he spoke quite low And a fair-spoken man is he And he said, "Miss Pipperidge, I'd like it fine If I could be wed with a wife And, indeed, Miss Pipperidge, if you'll be mine I'll be yours fer the rest of my life" Next moment we were promised And now my mind's in a maze Fer all I ken do is look forward to That wonderful day of days... When I marry Mister Snow The flowers'll be buzzin' with the hum of bees The birds'll make racket in the churchyard trees When I marry Mister Snow Then it's off to home we'll go And both of us'll look a little dreamy-eyed A drivin' to a cottage by the oceanside Where the salty breezes blow 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 him so he'll know That evry'thin'll be as right as right ken be A-livin' in a cottage by the sea with me For I love that Mister Snow That young seafarin', Bold and darin', Big bewhiskered, overbearin' Darling, Mister Snow! REPRISE: GIRLS: When you walk down the isle 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 can hardly see With your orange blossoms quiverin' in your hand And you'll 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 CARRIE: When I marry Mister Snow The flowers'll be humming 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 And both of us'll look a little dreamy-eyed A drivin' to a cottage by the oceanside Where the salty breezes blow He'll carry me across the threshold And I'll be as meek as a lamb Then he'll set me on my feet And I'll say kind of sweet, "Well Mister Snow, here I am!" ENOCH SNOW: Then I'll kiss her so she'll know That ev'rything'll be as right as right can be A livin' in a cottage by the sea with me Where the salty breezes blow I love Miss Pipperidge, And I aim to Make Miss Pipperidge Change her name to Missus Enoch Snow
