"The Wedding" as written by and John Barry....
You asked for nothing
That's what I gave you
Ash for ashes
Dust for dust

Your trust is touching
But misguided
Bride, I'll be yours for one night
I wander

I wonder really what you saw in me
I'm not your type at all
And all the angels hold their breath
As my eyes rest upon the pretty girl
Who leads the choir

They cry out their disgust for me
They are crying for my bride
Who smiles in white, does not suspect
My next move in the game

Again!
"I'll honor you and cherish you"
Again!
"I'll share my worldly goods"
Again... 'til death when we're parted

Only words don't mean a thing
I think of ways to run
The sun paints patterns
On the stained-glass windows

Widows in their Sunday best
Reflect about when they too were brides
They can't hide their feelings
As they steal seconds from an age
They'll never see again.

Again!
"With this ring I pledge myself"
Again!
("I do. I do. Shoo be doo doo wah...")

Why do we have to be so humble
And mumble words we never mean?
It's obscene, the ultimate obscenity
This serenity on Sunday
We're stars on Sundays

Smiles on straight!
Maybe one day rewards will be there for us
Just for us in heaven
Just for us amen amen
The end.
