(Cole Porter)
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 at Lover's Lane, she strayed.
Madam...
Miss Otis regrets
She's unable to lunch today.
~interlude~
When she woke from her dream
And found that her love had 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.
Then the mob came and got her
And dragged her from the jail.
Madam...
They strung her upon
A 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.
