Lyrics Makin' Whoopee!

Another bride
Another brew
Another sunny
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'
For makin' whoopee
Picture a little love nest down where the roses swing
Picture the same sweet love nest think what a years can bring
He's washing dishes and baby clothes
He's so ambitious
He even sows
So don't forget folks that's what you get folks for makin' whoopee
Ooh, oh oh oh
Mmm mmm mmm
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
He doesn't write
He says he's busy but she say's
Is he?
He's makin' whoopee
He doesn't make much money only five thousand per
Some judge who thinks he's funny
Now you'll pay six to her
He says judge suppose I fail
He says budge
Right into jail
You better keep her
Yeah I think it's cheaper
Than makin' whoopee
Than makin' whoopee
Mmm mmm makin' whoopee
Ooh ooh ooh yeah than makin' ooh
Mmm mmm mmm mmm
