Spike Jones – Cocktails For Two lyrics

    A music fan approaching 90 years old, I've always liked this song. Sung both melodically and the Spike Jones version. Yet, somehow, I've always erred in the second verse's wording by saying "IN some exquisite chansonnette" instead of " TO some exquisite chansonnette", thinking it referred to some sort of intimate cafe, perhaps featuring music, singing, etc. Then, the other morning I decided to look up the full and true meaning of "chansonnette"!
    And found it meant a "little tune". My curiosity led me to a most delightful video of a performance of Yves Montand singing. Of course, "La Chansonnette"! Look it up - you'll like it. His audience sure did!

    "Chansonnet" meant a "little song" , "tune" or similar (tho' Merriam-Webster does add " often a cabaret or cafe song" ) -- but thought it might have additional meaning, so suddenly had the urge to look up it's definition. Besides, I was primarily intent on telling how my curiosity after so many years led me to discover the very delightful rendition of a song by Yves Montand!
