The Lyrics

Up to wedding chapel came
A foolish lad one day
Both his eyes were blind from “love”
He thought this was the way
‘Fore he did an act so silly
Thought I’d set him square
This laddie needed righting so
I shouted to him there

It’s the wrong day for you to marry
I’ve been there I should know
It’s the wrong day for you to marry
She’s a leechin’ gal, my Bro
Goodbye to your willy
Farewell, home you share
It’s a wrong day for you to marry
For the court’s not fair

Laddie didn’t listen
He was ruled by head below
It said “Never you believe it,
I’m what makes you “go”
If I make mistakes in spilling
Jolly good!” said he
“Remember I’m a pen-is, lad,
You’ll pay eternally

It’s the wrong day for you to marry
I’ve been there I should know
It’s the wrong day for you to marry
She’s a leechin’ gal, my Bro
Goodbye to your willy
Farewell, home you share
It’s a wrong day for you to marry
For the law’s not fair

Laddie was a hopeless case
So to the altar went
Saying “Oh, baloney, she will
Marry me, no gent
Leave the bad advice so silly
All will be the same”
That love he had for his dear filly
Will go as quick it came

Was the wrong day for you to marry
I’ve been there I should know
Was the wrong day for you to marry
Now he’s payin’ lots of dough
Bedroom sure got chilly
Farewell, home you share
Was a wrong day for you to marry
For the court’s not fair

Thanks TJC. I knew it was a little obscure

The poor blighter. (A term I got from Snoopy's World War I flying ace bit, which is also how I know the song -- not from "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" finale.)

I had to read a parody to this ancient song. The last time I heard it was in that Peanuts Halloween special.
