Thread Name: Lyr Req: Here Comes the Bride
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Here Comes The Bride
According to this web site, my quote above should have been:

Here comes the groom, straight as a broom,
All purtied up with ten-cent perfume.

(I guess "dirtied" was how I heard it as a kid.) The cartoon was "Eatin' on the Cuff" from 1942, which I saw on TV in the 50s.
