And One More For The Road

It’s a quarter to three
There’s no one in the place except you and me
So, set ‘em up Joe
I’ve got a little story you oughtta know

We’re drinking my friend
To the end of a brief episode
Make it one for my baby
and one more for the road

I got the routine
So put another nickel in the machine
I’m feelin so bad
I wish you’d make the music dreamy and sad

Could tell you a lot
But you’ve got to be true to your code
Make it one for your baby
and one more for the road

You’d never know it
But buddy, I’m kind of poet
And I’ve gotta lotta things to say
And when I’m gloomy
You simply gotta listen to me
Until it’s talked away

Well, that’s how it goes
And Joe, I know you’re anxious to close
So thanks for the cheer
I hope you don’t my bending your ear

The torch that I’ve found
Must be drowned or it soon might explode
Make it one for my baby
And one more for the road
