TITLE: Makin' Whoopee
Lyrics and Chords

[ Ebdim7 = xx1212 ; Capo 3 ]

Another bride, another June
Another sunny honeymoon
Another season, another reason
For makin' whoopee

/ D Ebdim7 Em7 A7 / Dmaj7 D7 Gmaj7 Gm / D - Bb7 A7 / D Bm7 Em7 A7 /

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

.../ D - - - /

   Picture a little love nest
   Down where the roses cling
   Picture the same sweet love nest
   And think what a year can bring

   / Ebdim7 - Em - / Gm - D - / 1st / Gm - D A7 / 

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 guess
She feels neglected, and he's suspected
Of making whoopee

She sits alone, most every night
He doesn't phone; he doesn't write
He says he's busy, but she says "Is he?"
He's making 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 making whoopee
