GLEE CLUB: To the tables down at Mory's, to the place where Louie dwells To the dear old Temple bar we love so well Sing the Whiffenpoofs assembled, with their glasses raised on high And the magic of their singing casts its spell BING CROSBY: Yes, the magic of their singing, of the songs we love so well "Shall I Wasting" and "Mavourneen" and the rest ALL: We will serenade our Louie while life and voice shall last BING CROSBY: Then we'll pass and be forgotten with the rest ALL: We're poor little lambs who have lost our way Baa, baa, baa BING CROSBY: We're little black sheep who have gone astray Baa, baa, baa GLEE CLUB: Gentleman songsters off on a spree Doomed from here to eternity Lord have mercy on such as we Baa, baa, baa ALL: Gentleman songsters off on a spree Doomed from here to eternity BING CROSBY: Lord have mercy on such as we Baa, baa, baa Baa.......FADE
