Makin' Whoopee

VERSE

Ev'rytime I hear that march from Lohengrin
I am always on the outside looking in.
Maybe that is why I see the funny side
When I see a fallen brother take a bride.
Weddings make a lot of people sad,
But if you're not the groom they're not so bad.

REFRAIN 1

Another bride, another June,
Another sunny honeymoon,
Another season, another reason
For makin' whoopee!
A lot of shoes, a lot of rice,
The groom is nervous, he answers twice,
It's really killing that he's so willing
To make whoopee!
Picture a little love nest
Down where the roses cling,
Picture the same sweet love nest,
Think what a year can bring.
He's washing dishes and baby clothes,
He's so ambitious he even sews.
But don't forget, folks,
That's what you get, folks,
For makin' whoopee!
Another whoopee!

REFRAIN 2

Another year, or maybe less,
What's this I hear? Well, can't you guess?
She feels neglected, and he's suspected
Of makin' whoopee!
She sits alone 'most ev'ry night,
He doesn't 'phone her, he doesn't write,
He says he's " busy, " but she says, " Is he? "
He's makin' whoopee!
He doesn't make much money,
Only five thousand per,
Some judge who thinks he's funny
Says, " You'll pay six to her. "
He says, " Now, Judge, suppose I fail? "
The judge says, " Budge right into jail.
You'd better keep her,
I think it's cheaper,
Than makin' whoopee! "
Another whoopee!
