    "Makin' Whoopee" Lyrics

    Harry Nilsson

    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 killing that he's so willing,
    To make whoopee
    Picture a little love nest,
    down where the roses cling

    Picture that same sweet love nest,
    Think what a year can bring

    He's washing dishes and baby clothes,
    he's so ambitious he even sews,

    So don't forget folks, that's what you get, folks,
    for makin' whoopee.

    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 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,
    And some judge who thinks he's funny says you pay six to her,
    And he says, "Judge, suppose I fail?"
    The judge says, "Budge right into jail",
    You better keep her.
    I think it's cheaper
    Than makin' whoopee.

    Than makin' whoopee
