EF: Who was that woman I saw you with last night? SO: I must confess what you say is true I had a rendezvous with somebody new It's the only one I ever had EF: Oh yeah? SO: Baby, baby, don'cha go way mad! EF: Cheatin'shows and it never goes I got a reason to be mad, I suppose Well, I guess I'm just a passin' fad SO: Baby, baby, don'cha go way mad! EF: Your kind's a dime a dozen That's not the kind I want! Who would believe your cousin Would be sittin' in that restaurant! EF: You realise that I'm real upset! SO: What do you say that you forgive and forget? EF: Ought to shake you for a truer lad! SO: Oh bay-bay-baby, don'cha go way mad! SO: Look honey, if you really wanna know the truth She just happened to be sitting at my table EF: Baby! Baby, who are you kidding? SO: And furthermore, all I had on my mind was food! EF: Well, if that's the case How come you were seen holding hands across the table? SO: Holding hands? Holding hands? I wasn't holding hands, I was just reaching for the cheque! EF: Hah! Honey, you know you never reached for a cheque in your life! SO: I guess that you've got me dead to rights! EF: I mighta known that you were slippin' 'round nights! SO: I'll admit I really was a cad! EF: Can you blame me if I go 'way mad! SO: Cheatin' shows and it never goes EF: I wanna stay away for ever, I s'pose! SO: But she was only a passin' fad! EF: Oh yeah? SO: Baby baby, don'cha go way mad! SO: That gal was just a phoney! That chick had no finesse! EF: I know that's just baloney, But I forgive you, nonetheless! SO: I'm sorry dear if I made you blue! EF: All of my life I've been a fool for you! SO: Cool, kiss me just to show you're glad! EF: Nothin' doin' 'cause I'm goin' 'way mad! SO: You gotta forgive me! EF: No! No no no! SO: Oh forgive me! EF: Well, I'll think about it! Okay baby, I won't go 'way mad!
