Jake wants a weeny bake, Steak and a layer cake, He'll get a tummy ache too. We'll rent a tent or tepee. Let the town crier cry. And if it's RSVP This is what I'll reply: In the cool, cool, cool of the evening Tell 'em I'll be there In the cool, cool, cool of the evening Better save a chair When the party's gettin' a glow on And singin' fills the air In the shank of the night When the doin's are right You can tell 'em I'll be there 2ND Verse: "Whee" said the bumblebee," "Let's have a jubilee" "When?" said the prairie hen, "Soon?" "Shore" said the dinosaur. "Where?" said the grizzly bear, "Under the light of the moon?" "How `bout ya, brother jackass?" Ev'ryone gaily cried, "You comin' to the fracas?" Over his specs he sighed: In the cool, cool, cool of the evening Tell 'em I'll be there In the cool, cool, cool of the evening Slickum on my hair. When the party's gettin' a glow on And singin' fills the air If I ain't in the clink, And there's sumpin' to drink, You can tell 'em I'll be there (Contributed by Bill Huntley - November 2005 From the book "Our Huckleberry Friend") ****** As sung by Frank Sinatra : In the cool, cool, cool of the evening Tell 'em I'll be there In the cool, cool, cool of the evening Save your pappy a chair When the party's gettin' a glow on And singin' fills the air In the shank of the night When the doin's are right You can tell 'em I'll be there In the cool, cool, cool of the evening Tell 'em we'll be there If you need a pair of freeloaders To fracture your affair I may even give them Pagliacci Now, stand back and give him air Everyone can relax And we'll have a few yacks And you can tell 'em we'll be there In the cool, cool, cool of the evening Tell 'em we'll be there In the cool, cool, cool of the eveni Stickum in my hair If perchance we look a bit peaked Remember, c'est la guerre If we're still on our feet And there's somethin' to eat You can tell 'em we'll be there In the cool, cool, cool of the evening Tell 'em I'll be there In the cool, cool of the evening Better save a chair When the party's gettin' a glow on And singin' fills the air If there's gas in my hack And my laundry is back If you need a new face Or a tenor or bass You can tell 'em we'll be there *****
