MAKIN' WHOOPEE (Gus Kahn / Walter Donaldson) Ella Fitzgerald - 1956 Everytime I hear that marchin Lohengrin I am always on the outside lookin' in Maybe that is why I see the funny side When I see somebody's brother take a bride Weddings make a lot of people sad But if you're not the one, their not so bad! 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 lovenest, 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 feels 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 says "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 pay six to her" He says: "Now judge, suppose I fail." The judge says: "Budge, right into jail! You'd better keep her, I think it's cheaper Than Makin' Double-U H Double-O P Double-E - Whoopee!!"
