Miss Otis Regrets

Words and music by Cole Porter

Miss Otis Regrets she’s unable to lunch today, madam.
Miss Otis Regrets she’s unable to lunch today.
She is sorry to be delayed,
But last evening down lover’s lane she strayed, madam.
Miss Otis Regrets she’s unable to lunch today.

When she woke to discover her dream of love had gone, madam.
She ran to the man who had led her so far astray.
Then from under her velvet gown
She took a gun and shot her lover down, madam.
Miss Otis Regrets she’s unable to lunch today.

When the mob came and got her and dragged her from the jail, madam.
They hung her up on that old willow across the way.
And the moment before she died
She lifted up her lovely head and cried, madam.
Miss Otis Regrets she’s unable to lunch today.
