Harry: It won't be long
It won't be long
It won't because it can't be long
Before our dream comes true
Because you know I don't belong
And furthermore I shan't belong
To anyone but you

Larken: In a little while
Just a little while
You and I will be one two three four
In a little while I will see your smile
On the face of my son to be
Forever hand in glove
Is the way I have it planned
But I'll only stay in love
If the glove contains your hand
(original)
(In a velvet gown
I'll be coming down the aisle
And it's bound to seem as though
The waiting's only been a little in a little while)
{revival}
{Harry: I can see it all
Down to every small detail
So I wish you'd look around until you found
A castle in the neighborhood for sale

Larken (spoken) Oh I already have! It's tiny, only 27 rooms, and the moat's a mess, but we can pick it up for a sonnet!}

My time is at a premium
For soon the world will see me a
Maternal bride to be
I know I mustn't worry Harry
Still I wish you'd hurry Harry
Harry marry me!

Harry: In a little while
just a little while
You and I will be one two three four
In a little while I will see your smile
On the face of my son to be
{Both:} Forever hand in glove
Is the way I have it planned
But I'll only stay in love
If the glove contains your hand

Both: In a velvet gown you'll/I'll be coming down the aisle
And it's bound to seem as though
The waiting's only been a little in a little while
