  • Song Lyrics:
    Prelude

    Oh what delight to be given the right
    To be carefree and gay once again
    No longer slinking, respectfully drinking
    Like civilized ladies and men

    No longer need we miss
    A charming scene like this....

    Song

    In some secluded rendezvous (whoopee, whistle, bang)
    That overlooks the avenue (horn noises)
    With someone sharing a delightful chat (yickety yickety)
    Of this and that with cocktails for two (clink clink)

    As we enjoy a cigarette (wheezing cough)
    To some exquisite chansonette (fiddle sound)
    Two hands are sure to slyly meet beneath
    The serviette with cocktails for two (clink clink)

    My head may go reeling (slide whistle)
    But my heart will be obedient (heartbeat sound)
    With intoxicating kisses
    For the principal ingredient (pop fizz laugh)

    Most any afternoon at five (ting ting ting ting)
    We'll be so glad we're both alive (ahhhhh)
    Then maybe fortune will complete her plan
    That all began with cocktails for two. (clink)

    (musical interlude with hiccups & other strange noises)

    Most any afternoon at five (Sunday to Monday at five)
    We'll be so glad we're both alive (we'll be so glad we're alive)
    Then maybe fortune will complete her plan (oooh-we-ooh)
    That all began with cocktails for two (hic) two (hic) two-we-ooh (hic)
