MAKIN' WHOOPEE From the Broadway show "Whoopee" (1928) (Gus Kahn / Walter Donaldson) Eddie Cantor - 1929 Paul Whiteman & His Orchestra (vocals: Bing Crosby, Jack Fulton, Charles Gaylord & Austin Young) - 1929 Ben Bernie & His Orch. (vocal: Scrappy Lambert)- 1929 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 Its 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 washin dishes and baby clothes He's so ambitious he even sews But don't forget folks, Thats what you get folks, for makin' whoopee He doesn't make much money Five thousand dollars 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 making whoopee." * * * * * * * * * * * * MAKIN' WHOOPEE From The film "Whoopee!" (1930) (Gus Kahn / Walter Donaldson) Eddie Cantor & The Goldwyn Girls - 1930 Another bride, another groom The countryside is all in bloom; The flow'rs 'n trees is, The birds and bees is Making whoopee. The choir sings, "Here comes the bride" Another victim is at her side He's lost his reason 'Cause it's the season For making whoopee. Down through the countless ages, You'll find it ev'rywhere: Somebody makes good wages, Somebody wants her share. It's so he'll fall for Making whoopee. Another year, or maybe less What's this I hear? Or can't you guess? She feels neglected, And he's suspected Of making whoopee. She sits alone 'most ev'ry night He doesn't come home, or even write He says he's busy But she says, "Is he Making whoopee?" He doesn't make much money Five thousand dollars per; Some judge who thinks he's funny Says, "You pay six to her." He says, "Now judge, suppose I fail?" The judge says, "Bud, right into jail. You'd better keep her You'll find it cheaper Than making whoopee."
