Lyrics:
Unaccustomed as I am to getting married,
I am taking this occasion here to say
That me and Adelaide are finally naming the day.
Though she knows deep in her heart
I'm a phoney and I'm a fake,
She wants five children to start,
Five's a difficult point to make, but..
Chorus:
Adelaide, Adelaide, ever-loving Adelaide,
Is taking a chance on me,
Taking a chance I'll be respectable and nice,
Give up cards and dice, and go for shoes and rice,
So gentlemen, deal me out, do not try to feel me out,
I got no more evenings free (you may scratch me)
Since Adelaide, Adelaide, ever loving Adelaide
Is taking a chance (talk about your long shot)
Taking a chance on me.
