Miss Otis regrets
She's unable to lunch today, madam
Miss Otis regrets
She's unable to lunch today

She is sorry to be delayed
But last evening down in lover's lane
She strayed, madam
Miss Otis regrets
She's unable to lunch today

When she woke up and found
That her dream
Of love was gone, madam
She ran to the man
Who had led her so far astray

And from under her velvet gown
She drew a gun
And shot her lover down, madam
Miss Otis regrets
She's unable to lunch today

When the mob came and got her
And dragged her from the jail, madam
They strung her upon
The old willow across the way
And the moment before she died
She lifted up her lovely
Head and cried, madam

Miss Otis regrets
She's unable to lunch today
Miss Otis regrets
She's unable to lunch today
