Makin' Whoopee  Ella Fitzgerald

verse 1

Another [G]bride, another [Am7]groom
[D7]Another [G]sunny[G7] honey[C]moon [Cm7]
Another [Em7]season, another [Eb7]reason [D7]
For makin' [G]whoopee [D7]
verse 2 (like 1st verse)
A lot of [G]shoes, a lot of [Am7]rice
[D7]The groom is [G]nervous [G7] he answers[C] twice [Cm]
It's really [G]killing, that he's so [Eb7]willing [D7]
For makin' [G]whoopee [D7]
verse 3
[Bdim]Picture a little [Am]love nest
[Cm]Down where the roses [G]cling
[Bdim]Picture the same sweet [Am]love nest
[Cm]See what a year can [G]bring
verse 4 (like 1st verse)
He's washin dishes and baby clothes
He's so ambitious he even sews
But don't forget folks,
Thats what you get folks, for makin' whoopee
verse 5 (like 1st verse)
Another year, maybe less
What's this I hear? Well, can't you guess?
She feels neglected, and he's suspected
Of makin' whoopee
verse 6 (like 1st verse)
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 makin' whoopee
verse 7 (like 3rd verse)
Now he doesn't make much money
Only five thousand per
Some judge who thinks he's funny
Says, "You'll pay six to her."
verse 8 (like 1st verse)
He says, "Now judge, suppose I fail?"
Judge say, "Budge. Right into jail.
You'd better keep her. I think it's cheaper
Than makin' whoopee." [E7]
Yeah, [G]you better keep her
I think it's [Eb7]cheaper [D7]
Then makin' [G]whoopee [D7] [G]
