Polish Wedding Custom - Song

At the end of the reception, everyone sings:

Twelve angels carrying
God's blessing from above
Twelve angels carrying
Twelve angels carrying
God's blessing from above.

This is the refrain. After all the verses, the last one is:

My dearest mother
I'm leaving you today
To live with my man
To live with my man
On this my wedding day.
