    Lyrics

    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 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
    That's what you get, folks, for makin' whoopee

    Another year or maybe less
    What's this I hear? Well, you can't confess
    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'll 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' whoopee

    You'd better keep her
    I know it's cheaper
    Than makin' whoopee
