Here's a Kiss for Cinderella Lyrics

WINTERGREEN:
But on this glorious day I find
I'm sentimentally inclined.
And so-
I sing this to the girls I used to know:

Here's a kiss for Cinderella
And a parting kiss for May;
Toodle-oo, good-bye, this is my wedding day.

Here's a parting smile for Della
And the lady known as Lou;
Toodle-oo, good-bye, with bach'lor days I'm through!

Tho' I really never knew them,
It's a rule I must obey;
So I'm saying good-bye to them
In the customary way.

My regards to Arabella
And to Emmaline and Kay!
Toodle-oo, dear girls, good-bye!
This is my wedding day.

[WINTERGREEN REPEATS FIRST SIX LINES OF ABOVE; ALL OTHERS SING AGAINST THIS:]

ALL OTHERS:
He is toodle-ooing all his lady loves.
All the girls he didn't know so well,
All the innocent and all the shady loves,
Oh, ding-a-dong-a-dell!
Bride and groom, their future should be glorious-
What a happy story they will tell;
Let the welkin now become uproarious,
Oh, ding-a-dong-a-dell!

[ENTER MARY, ESCORTED BY FULTON]
ALL:
Clear the way!
Hail the bride!
Sweet and gay-
Here comes the bride!

MARY:
Is it true or I dreaming?
Do I go to Heav'n to stay?
Never was a girl so happy on her wedding day!

CHIEF JUSTICE:
[SPOKEN]
Do you, John P. Wintergreen, solemnly swear to uphold the
Constitution of the United states of America and to love,
honor, and cherish this woman so long as you two shall live?

WINTERGREEN:
I do.

CHIEF JUSTICE:
Do you, Mary Turner, promise to love, honor, and
cherish this man so long as you two shall live?

MARY:
I do.

CHIEF JUSTICE:
Therefore, by virtue of the power that is vested in me as Chief Justice,
I hereby pronounce you President of the United States, man and wife.

WINTERGREEN:
Mary!

MARY:
John!

[THEY EMBRACE]

BOTH:
[SING]
Is it true or I dreaming?
Have I come to Heav'n to stay?
Never was a girl (man) so happy on her (his) wedding day!

[DISCORD IN ORCHESTRA. DIANA APPEARS]

DIANA:
Stop! Halt! Pause! Wait!

ALL:
Who is this intruder?
There's no one could be ruder!

[TO DIANA]

What's your silly notion
In causing this commotion?
