Marry when the year is new, Always loving, kind and true.
When February birds do mate, you may wed, nor dread your fate.
If you wed when March winds blow, Joy and sorrow both you’ll know.
Marry in April when you can, Joy for maiden and for man.
Marry in the month of May, you will surely rue the day.
Marry when June roses blow, over land and sea you’ll go.
Those who in July do wed must labor always for their bread.
Whoever wed in August be, many a change are sure to see.
Marry in September’s shine, your living will be rich and find.
If in October you do marry, love will come but riches tarry.
When December’s showers fall fast, a union made will surely last.
Okay, now just be sure and invite me!
