Making Whoopee (Gus Kahn) Another bride, another groom The countryside is all in bloom; The flow'rs 'n trees is, The birds and bees is Making whoopie. The choir sings, "Here comes the bride" Another victim is at her side He's lost his reason 'Cause it's the season For making whoopee. Down through the countless ages, You'll find it ev'rywhere: Somebody makes good wages, Somebody wants her share. It's so he'll fall for Making whoopee. Another year, or maybe less What's this I hear? Or can't you guess? She feels neglected, And he's suspected Of making whoopee. She sits alone 'most ev'ry night He doesn't come home, or even write He says he's busy But she says, "Is he Making whoopee?" He doesn't make much money Five thousand dollars per; Some judge who thinks he's funny Says, "You pay six to her." He says, "Now judge, suppose I fail?" The judge says, "Bud, right into jail. You'd better keep her You'll find it cheaper Than making whoopee." Note: This set of words sung by Eddie Cantor in movie version of Whoopee! (1930) There are lots, lots, more.RG Additional verses: Another bride Another groom Another sunny Honeymoon; Another season, Another reason For makin' whoopee. A quiet service, 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 lovenest Down where the roses cling Picture that same sweet lovenest Think what a year can bring. He's washing dishes And baby clothes He's so ambitious He even sews; But don't forget, boys THat's what you get, boys For makin' whoopee. RG
