Oh what delight to be given the right To be carefree and gay once again No longer slinking, respectably drinking Like civilized ladies and men No longer need we miss A charming scene like this.... In some secluded rendezvous That overlooks the avenue With someone sharing a delightful chat Of this and that, and cocktails for two As we enjoy a cigarette To some exquisite chansonnette Two hands are sure to slyly meet beneath A serviette, with cocktails for two My head may go reeling But my heart will be obedient With intoxicating kisses For the principal ingredient Most any afternoon at five We'll be so glad we're both alive Then maybe fortune will complete her plan That all began with cocktails for two ********** As recorded by Spike Jones & His City Slickers: (Oh, what delight to be given the right) (To be carefree and gay once again) (No longer slinking, respectably drinking) (Like civilized ladies and men) No longer need we miss A charming scene like this.... In some secluded rendezvous (whoopee, whistle, bang) That overlooks the avenue (horn noises) With someone sharing a delightful chat (yackety-yackety) Of this and that with cocktails for two (clink-clink) As we enjoy a cigarette (wheezing cough) To some exquisite chansonette (fiddle sound) Two hands are sure to slyly meet beneath The serviette with cocktails for two (clink-clink) My head may go reeling (slide whistle) But my heart will be obedient (heartbeat sound) With intoxicating kisses For the principal ingredient (pop, fizz, laugh) Most any afternoon at five (ting-ting-ting-ting) We'll be so glad we're both alive (ahhhhhhh) Then maybe fortune will complete her plan That all began with cocktails for two (clink) (Musical interlude with hiccups & various noises) Most any afternoon at five (Sunday to Monday at five) We'll be so glad we're both alive (We'll be so glad we're alive) Then maybe fortune will complete her plan That all began with cocktails for two (hic) two (hic) doo-dee-doo (hic) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2010)
