Miss Otis Regrets (Cole Porter) Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today (2X) She's so sorry to be delayed But last evening down to Lovers Lane she strayed Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today. When she woke and found her dream of love was gone She looked for the man who had led her so far astray And from beneath her satin gown She drew a gun and shot her lover down Miss Otis regrets etc. Well, a crowd came and got her, took her from the county jail And dragged her to the old elm tree across the way And the moment before she died She raised her lovely head and cried, Miss Otis Regrets etc. Copyright Cole Porter RG OCT98
