Lyrics:
When the wedding bells have all been rung
And youíve both started wondering who got stung
Well, the honeymoonís over
Itís really gone
Preliminaryís over and the main boutís going on

When the hen fluffs her feathers to look her best
The rooster hears her clucking but he donít hunt the nest
Man, the honeymoonís over
Itís really gone
Preliminaryís over and the main boutís going on

When we go to the beach to get nice and brown
She sees me in my trunks and says, ďYour chest fell down!Ē
Well, the honeymoonís over
Itís really gone
Preliminaryís over and the main boutís going on

Now look here Sam, thereís other fish in the sea
Well Ma, your bait ainít what it used to be
Well, the honeymoonís over
Itís really gone
Preliminaryís over and the main boutís going on

When you wake some morning and itís half past four
And you catch him peeking at the folks next door
Well, the honeymoonís over
Itís really gone
Preliminaryís over and the main boutís going on
Preliminaryís over and the main boutís going on
