Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Another bride, another June
Another sunny honeymoon
Another season, another reason
For makin' whoopee
Verse 2
A lot of shoes, a lot of rice
The groom is nervous; he answers twice
It's really killin'
That he's so willin' to make whoopee
Verse 3
Picture a little love nest
Down where the roses cling
Picture the same sweet love nest
Think what a year can bring
Verse 4
He's washin' dishes and baby clothes
He's so ambitious he even sews
But don't forget, folks
That's what you get, folks, for makin' whoopee
Verse 5
Another year or maybe less
What's this I hear? Well, you can't confess
She feels neglected, and he's suspected
Of makin' whoopee
Verse 6
She sits alone 'most every night
He doesn't phone her; he doesn't write
He says he's busy, but she says, "Is he?"
He's makin' whoopee
Verse 7
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
He says, "Now, Judge, suppose I fail?"
The judge says, "Budge right into jail"
You'd better keep her; I think it's cheaper
Than makin' whoopee
Verse 9
You'd better keep her
I know it's cheaper
Than makin' whoopee
