Ella Fitzgerald – Makin' Whoopee lyrics
Another bride Another June
Another sunny honeymoon
Another season, another reason
For makin' whoopee

A lot of shoes, a lot of rice
The groom is nervous he answers twice
It's really killin' that he's so willin'
To make whoopee

Picture a little love nest
Down where the roses cling
Picture the same sweet love nest
Think what a year can bring

He's washing dishes and baby clothes
He's so ambitious he even sews
But don't forget folks that's what you get folks
For makin' whoopee

Another year or maybe less
What's this I hear? Well can't you guess?
She fells neglected and he's suspected
Of makin' whoopee

She sits alone most every night
He doesn't phone her he doesn't write
He says he's busy but she say's "is he?"
He's makin' whoopee

He doesn't make much money
Only five thousand per
Some judge who thinks he's funny
Says you'll pay six to her

He says now judge suppose I fail
The judge says budge right into jail
You better keep her I think it's cheaper
Then makin' whoopee

You better keep her
I know it's cheaper than makin' whoopee
