(Verse 1) 
C               C Am 
I've no wish to hurry you luv 
    Asus4/B            C Am 
But have you seen the time 
C               F                         G 
It's quarter to ten and we're supposed to be there 
G 
At nine 
F                 G 
I don't think the registrar 
F            G 
Will be very pleased 
F                  G 
When we show up an hour late 
C               C Am   Asus/B 
Like two frozen peas 
 
(Verse 2) 
C               C Am 
Both now facing for the first time 
Asus/B        C Am 
Presently and past 
F             
Something that begins with m 
    C7 
And ends in alas 
F 
More than not complete disaster 
G             C 
Even from the start 
F                    G 
What could it be... 
G    C           C Am   Asus/B 
It's matrimony 
 
(Verse 3) 
I know how you've dreamt about 
Being walked down the aisle 
But think of the money we'll save 
And you'll see it's worthwhile 
It won't please our mums and dads 
But they don't even know, 
Besides if they did what's the betting 
They wouldn't even go 
 
(Verse 4) 
You and me are all that matters 
Disregard the rest 
Trust your soon to be old man 
He knows what is best 
Very shortly now there's going to be 
An answer from you 
Then one from me 
That's matrimony 
 
(Middle) 
          E                       C7 
I'm truly grateful for the little things in life 
          F          C 
That have made me so glad 
            F           C 
Every other hour that i spend with you 
              F 
Is not in the least bit sad 
G                     F 
Quite the opposite in fact 
                 Am 
And if you don't believe me 
E 
Here's the proof 
E         F               G      F     C7 
Ask me if i and i'll say 'aye, i do----oo' 
 
(Play 1st verse again without singing then...) 
 
(Verse 5) 
You and me are all that matters 
Disregard the rest 
Trust your soon to be old man 
He knows what is best 
Very shortly now there's going to be 
An answer from you 
Then one from me 
That's matrimony
