Lyrics for Congratulations Sonya
Now, Sonya, it’s your hen night, Congratulations are due
Because I hear that you’re marrying Tim,
so they’ve sent this minstrel to sing to you.
I’ve heard so many stories, all about the things you do,
But Sonya, it seems they always involve alcohol it’s true
And so I’m here to say good luck on your wedding day
Tell me are they true the things that your friends all say
That you’re obsessed with orphan Annie, and Frozen, so they say,
And a giant creme caramel baby, that you made one day
And Sian and Sonya keep on rolling, rolling, rolling everyday
You introduce everyone to Jager bombs, Sonya, I’ve heard that this is true
And I’ve heard that pickled gherkins, are better than kebabs for you
Your dance moves are brilliant this I know,
but they’re nicked from Charlie Brook’s fitness video
And you’ve sucked wine from Rachael’s rug, you’d spilt it on the floor we know.
You’re soon to become Sonya Sands, and you love each other this is clear
And after your surprise engagement party,
he had the whole wedding booked within a month I hear.
And the ones you love are all here with you,
your mum Loraine and Tim’s mum Dorothy too,
