Now we're agreed that we're in love We'll have to face the lah-di-dah, The eyewash, all of the fancy pantomime. (I love you very much.) I'll try love, I'll bill and coo With your gruesome Auntie Susan I'll stay calm, I'll play it cool; I'll let your tetchy uncles Get me back up, cross my heart. And I shan't get shirty when they say I look peculiar.
I'll be nice to your mother, I'll come all over lah-di-dah, Although she always gets up me nose. (I love you very much.) And so I'll smile and I'll acquiesce When she invites me to caress Her scabby cat; I'll sit still while she knits And witters, cross my heart, And I shan't lay a finger on the crabby old batface.
I'll be polite to your daddy, Frightfully lah-di-dah, Although he always bores me to my boots. (I love you very much.) And so I won't boo and hiss When he starts to reminisce I won't drop off, I won't flare up; The runs he used to score And how he won the war, cross my heart, But I'll have to grit me teeth when he goes on about his rupture.
I'll behave at the wedding breakfast I'll be lah-di-dah So help me! Hearty toasts and risky jokes! (I love you very much.) So help me, I'll force a laugh For the flicking photographs So have no fear, I won't turn tail; I won't run amuck when the females chuck Confetti in my ears And cross me heart, love, I'll keep off the pale ale.
When we're off on our own No more lah-di-bloody-dah I promise, we just won't have the time We won't have time for such, Such fancy pantomimes. (I'll love you far too much.)
