Carmen McRae – Happy To Make Your Acquaintance lyrics

When you meet somebody for the first time
There are special things you're supposed to say
Which you may not mean but they sound polite as can be
Would you like to learn them?

Well then, repeat after me
Happy to make your acquaintance
'Appy to make your acquaintance
Thank you so much, I feel fine

T'ank you so much, omma feel fine
Happy to make your acquaintance
Acquaintance and let me say the pleasure
Da pleasure is mine, da pleasure's a mine

How do you do? Pleased to know you
'Ow do you do? Pleased to know you
And though my English is poor
My English is a goddamn poor

Happy to make your acquaintances
Now won't you please say, likewise
Look a wise, no likewise
Like a ways, no likewise
Oh, like a wise, I'm sure
