VP_000276 Verse 1One little week from Sunday, Wish it were today. One little week from Sunday, Seems a year away; You're goin' to promise to be mine, I'm goin' to be there rain or shine; One little week from Sunday, So let us set the time. Chorus 1At half past nine, You and I will be one, At half past nine, When the parson is done; You'll hear the whole family, Whisp'ring to me; May all your troubles, Be little ones, little ones; At half past nine, They'll be wishing us joy, At half past nine, Lucky girlie and boy; We'll haveter stand for their jokes and their laughter, Kiss each one that you haveter; They're goin' to leave us right after it's half past nine. Verse 2Just seven days from Sunday, You'll belong to me. Just seven days from Sunday, Oh! how rich I'll be; The days are longer than before, The clocks keep saying o'er and o'er; Just seven days from Sunday, And not a minute more.
