Lyrics

It's a beautiful day

It's a rather nice day

A day for a glorious wedding

A rehearsal my dear, to be perfectly clear

A rehearsal for a glorious wedding

Assuming nothing happens that we don't really know

That nothing unexpected interferes with the show


And that's why every thing

Every last little thing

Every single tiny microscopic little thing must go


According to plan

Our son will be married

According to plan

Our family carried

Elevated to the heights of society


To the costume balls

In the hallowed halls

Rubbing elbows with the finest

Having crumpets with Her Highness

We'll be there, we'll be seen

Having tea with the queen

We'll forget everything

That we've ever, ever been


(dialogue)


It's a terrible day

Now don't be that way

It's a terrible day for a wedding

It's a sad, sad state of affairs we're in

That has led to this ominous wedding

How could our family have come to this?

To marry off our daughter to the nouveau riche

They're so common

So coarse

Oh it couldn't be worse

Couldn't be worse? I'm afraid I disagree

They could be land-rich, bankrupt aristocracy

Without a penny to their name

Just like you, and me

Oh dear


And that's why everything

Every last little thing

Every single tiny microscopic little thing must go


According to plan

Our daughter will wed

According to plan

Our family led

From the depths of deepest poverty

To the noble realm

Of our ancestry

And who'd have guessed in a million years

That our daughter with a face

Of an otter in disgrace

Would provide our ticket to a rightful place


(dialogue)


Marriage is a partnership

A little tit for tat

You'd think a lifetime watching us

Might have taught her that

Might have taught her that


Everything must be perfect

Everything must be perfect

Everything must be perfect perfect

That's why everything

Every last little thing

Every single tiny microscopic little thing must go
