Mamma Mia! A Lyrical Retelling of a Greek Wedding

In honor of one of my favorite couples, and my sole friend with the ability to break into opera at any given moment, I’m dedicating this blog in musical form to B-side.  Love you guys and so glad I was able to make it to your beautiful wedding!
(to the tune of Mamma Mia – which was totally worth listening to 293842309 times to write this)

Couldn’t wait for your wedding since I don’t know when
So a trip to Corfu, with my Handsome boyfriend
We’re crossing the towns, we’re on our way
We don’t know where, but we know that we’re coming there
To Erikoussa for the perfect pair 
Just one more ferry to exchanging of rings
Running to the church not to miss anything, w-o-o-o-oh
Mar and Justin, it’s your wedding day
My my, how’d I almost miss it?
Mar and Justin, glad I’m here today
My my, just how much I’ve missed you!
If late I’d be brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why why, didn’t I take the early bus?
Mar and Justin, I just don’t know
My my, where is Captain Nikos?
Made it to the hotel with half an hour to spare
Rushed through check in, a shower and doing my hair
We gotta go, gotta slam the door
I think you know, the walk there won’t be too long
These hills – in heels I’m not that strong.
Look down the hill I can hear a bell ring
It’s time for church, let’s go sweat through this thing, w-o-o-o-oh
Mar and Justin, it’s Greek wedding day
My my, everyone’s here for you!
Mar and Justin, walking down the lane
My my, we’re so happy for you!
Never again brokenhearted
You, never to be parted
My my, never let each other go!
Mar and Justin, now it’s time to say
Perfect couple, now and for forever.
Mar and Justin, switch those crowns today
Now now walk around the table.  
Mar and Justin, time to eat and dance
My my, Geneseo to Corfu
Mar and Justin, time to dance again?
My my, IB days we’ve missed you!
Yes now the drinking’s started
Join the dance, here, the circle’s parted
Why why, did we all go shoot ouzo?
Mar and Justin, now you really know,
My my, we all just love you so!
