or
Sarah Brightman

I love my wife and I love her more
Than the way I used to love her before
She became my wife, but today she is
So don't call me early 'cause I'll be busy,
Beside her waiting for her to wake
And her eyes to open like dawn is breaking
The whole world over for me today,
'Cause I can't believe that I heard her say
She would honor, love and obey 'til death do us
Pardon me if I catch my breath.

When I knew my wife was the wife for me
We went out and sat by the willow tree,
And I begged and pleaded, uh huh,
Marry me, honey, and that is what she did.

Begged and pleaded, uh huh
Marry me, honey,
And that is what she did.

Oh, how you pleaded
If you thought you needed to
You sure were wrong!
You took too long.
But I kept on praying
One day I'd be saying
I love my husband, I love him more
Than the way I used to love him before
He became my husband but now he is,
So don't call me early 'cause I'll be busy
Beside him waiting for him to wake
And his loving arms to reach up and take me
For one more trip to the Milky Way,
Like he did before, when I heard him say
He would honor, love and obey 'til death do us
Pardon me if I catch my breath.

Oh, I never thought he'd propose to me
'Til he took me out by the willow tree,
And he begged and pleaded, uh huh,
Marry me, honey, and that is what he did.

Begged and pleaded, uh huh
Marry me, honey,
And that is what she did.

I love my husband, I love him more
Than the way I used to love him before
He became my husband but now he is,
So don't call me early 'cause I'll be busy
Beside him waiting for him to wake
And his loving arms to reach up and take me
For one more trip to the Milky Way,
Like he did before, when I heard him say
He would honor, love and obey 'til death do us
Pardon me if I catch my breath.

Oh, I never thought he'd propose to me
'Til he took me out by the willow tree,
And he begged and pleaded, uh huh,
Marry me, honey, and that is what we did.

Begged and pleaded, uh huh
Marry me, honey,
And that is what we did.
