Dark an' stormy may come de wedder ; I jines dis he-male an' dis she-male to-
gedder. Let none, but Him dat makes de thunder, Put dis he-male an' dis she-male asunder. I darfore 'nounce you bofe de same. Be good, go 'long, an' keep up yo' name. De broomstick's jumped, de worl's not
wide. She's now yo' own. Salute yo' bride!
