Addl Lyrics:

We wasted no time now,
We planned a wedding for the first of June
Hear the wedding bells chime now
And see the folks all watching for the bride and groom
Waiting for violins and sweet romantic melodies
But when we started down the aisle
You should have seen the preacher smile
For there were trumpets and trombones making
Sad sounds and glad tones and
Notes that I will never understand
And there were tin horns and oboes and
Saxophone solos, Now
I know and you know
Love is like a big brass band.
