Makin' Whoopee 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
Its 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
He doesn't make much money
Five thousand dollars per;
Some judge who thinks he's funny
Says, "You pay six to her."
Verse 6
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 making whoopee."
