As performed by FRED ASTAIRE in the 1943 film "The Sky's The Limit": It's quarter to three, there's no one in the place except you and me So, set 'em up, Joe, I've got a little story you ought to know We're drinking, my friend, to the end of a brief episode Make it one for my baby and one more for the road I got the routine, so drop another nickel in the machine I'm feeling so bad, I wish you'd make the music dreamy and sad Could tell you a lot, but that's not in a gentleman's code Make it one for my baby and one more for the road You'd never know it, but buddy, I'm a kind of poet And I got a lot of things to say And when I'm gloomy, you simply gotta listen to me Until it's talked away Well that's how it goes and Joe, I know your getting anxious to close So, thanks for the beer, I hope you didn't mind my bending your ear Don't let it be said little Freddie can't carry his load Make it one for my baby and one more for the road That long, long road ******************** As recorded by FRANK SINATRA, June 26th 1958: It's quarter to three, there's no one in the place 'cept you and me So, set 'em up, Joe, I got a little story I think you should know We're drinkin', my friend, to the end of a brief episode Make it one for my baby and one more for the road I got the routine, put another nickel in the machine Feelin' so bad, can't you make the music easy and sad I could tell you a lot, but you've gotta be true to your code Just make it one for my baby and one more for the road You'd never know it, but buddy, I'm a kind of poet And I got a lot of things I'd like to say And when I'm gloomy, won't you listen to me Till it's talked away Well, that's how it goes and Joe, I know your gettin' anxious to close And thanks for the cheer, I hope you didn't mind my bending your ear But this torch that I found, it's gotta be drowned or it soon might explode So, make it one for my baby and one more for the road The long, it's so long, the long, very long road (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2015)
