"Matchmaker, Matchmaker" as written by and Sheldon Harnick Jerry Bock....
Matchmaker, matchmaker,
Make me a match,
Find me a find,
Catch me a catch
Matchmaker, matchmaker
Look through your book,
And make me a perfect match

Oh, matchmaker, matchmaker,
I'll bring the veil,
You bring the groom,
Slender and pale.
Bring me a ring for I'm longing to be,
The envy of all I see.

For Papa,
Make him a scholar.
For mama,
Make him rich as a king.

For me, no,
I wouldn't holler
If he were as handsome as anything.

Matchmaker, matchmaker,
Make me a match,
Find me a find,
Catch me a catch,
Night after night in the dark I'm alone
So make me a match,
Of my own.

For Papa,
Make him a scholar.
For mama,
Make him rich as a king.

For me, no,
I wouldn't holler
If he were as handsome as anything.

Matchmaker, matchmaker,
Make me a match,
Find me a find,
Catch me a catch,
Night after night in the dark I'm alone

So find me a find
Catch me a catch
Make me a match,
Of my own, of my own,
Of my own, of my own
