About the Song
"Get Me to the Church on Time" is a song composed by Frederick Loewe, with lyrics written by Alan Jay Lerner for the 1956 musical My Fair Lady, where it was introduced by Stanley Holloway. It is sung by the cockney character Alfred P. Doolittle, a dustman , the father of the show's main character Eliza Doolittle. He has received a surprise bequest of four thousand pounds a year from an American millionaire, raising him to middle-class respectability. Consequently he feels he must marry Eliza's "stepmother", the woman he has been "living in sin" with for many years. Doolittle and his friends have one last spree before the wedding and the song is a plea to his friends not to let his drunken merriment forget his good intentions and make sure he gets to his wedding. Frederick Loewe (born German: Friedrich Löwe, June 10, 1901, Vienna - February 14, 1988, Palm Springs) was a Tony Award-winning.    Download this sheet!
