Sue wants a barbecue
Sam wants to boil ham
Grace votes for bouillabaisse stew
Jake wants a wienie bake, steak and a layer cake
He'll get a tummy ache too

We'll rent a tent or tepee
Let the town crier cry
And if it's RSVP
This is what I'll reply

In the cool cool cool of the evening
Tell 'em I'll be there
In the cool cool cool of the evening
You better save a chair
When the party's getting a glow on
Singing fills the air
In the shank of the night when the doings are right
You can tell 'em I'll be there

We, said the bumblebee, let's have a jubilee
When said the prairie hen, soon
Sure said the dinosaur
Where said the grizzly bear
Under the light of the moon
How 'bout your brother jackass
Everyone gave a cry
You coming to the fracas
Over his expected sighs

In the cool cool cool of the evening
Tell 'em I'll be there
In the cool cool cool of the evening
Slickum on my hair
When the party's getting a glow on
Singing fills the air
If I aint in the clink
And there's something to drink
You can tell 'em I'll be there
If I can find the right sock by eleven o'clock
You can tell 'em I'll be there
If you need a new face or a tenor off base
You can tell 'em I'll be there
If I can climb out of bed, put a hat on my head
You can tell 'em I'll be there
