8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Ev -'ry time I hear that march from Loh -en -grin, I am al -ways on the out -side look -in' in.
May -be that is why I see the fun -ny side, When I see a fall -en broth -er take a bride.
Wed -dings make a lot of peo -ple sad, But if you're not the groom you're not so bad.
An -oth -er bride, an -the -er June, An -oth -er sun -ny hon -ey -moon,
An -oth -er se -son an -oth -er rea -son, For Mak -in' Whoop -ee!
A lot of shoes, a lot of rice, The groom is ner -vous, he an -swers twice.
It's real -ly kill -ing that he's so will -ing, To make whoop -ee.
Pic -ture a lit -tle love nest, Down where the ros -es cling,
Pic -ture the same sweet love nest, Think what a year can bring.
He's wash -ing dish -es and ba -by clothes, He's so am -bi -tious he ev -en sews.
But don't for -get folks, that's what you get folks, For Mak -in' Whoop -ee!
