Labelle – Miss Otis Regrets lyrics

Miss Otis regrets, she's unable to lunch today
(Madam)
Miss Otis regrets, she's unable to lunch today
(Madam)

Sorry to be delayed
But last evening down at lover's lane, she strayed

Madam
(Miss Otis regrets)
Regrets
(Miss Otis regrets)
Regrets

(Miss Otis regrets)
Miss Otis regrets, she's unable
(Madam)
To lunch today

When she woke up and found
That her dream of love was gone
(Madam)
She ran, she ran to the man
Who had lead her astray

And from under her black velvet gown
She drew a gun and shot her lover down

Madam
(Miss Otis regrets)
Regrets
(Miss Otis regrets)
Regrets

(Miss Otis regrets)
Miss Otis regrets, she's unable, unable
Unable to lunch today

When the mob came and got her
And dragged her from the jail
They strung her up, up, up, up on the, oh
Willow across the way

And the moment before she died
She lifted her lovely head and cried

(Miss Otis regrets)
Regrets
(Miss Otis regrets)
Regrets

(Miss Otis regrets)
Miss Otis regrets, she's unable, she's unable
Unable, she's unable to lunch today
