Cyndi Lauper - Makin' Whoopee Lyrics

[Cyndi Lauper:]
Every time I hear that march from Lohengrin
I am always on the outside lookin' in
Maybe that is why I see the funny side
When I see somebody's brother take a bride
Weddings make a lot of people sad
But if you're not the one, they're not so bad

Another bride, another June
Another sunny honeymoon
Another season, another reason
For makin' whoopee

[Tony Bennett:]
A lot of shoes, a lot of rice
The groom is nervous, who can blame him, he answers twice
Its really killin', but he's so willin' to make whoopee

[Tony Bennett:] Picture a little love nest
[Cyndi Lauper:] I got you
[Tony Bennett:] Down where the roses cling
[Cyndi Lauper:] It's very romantic
[Tony Bennett:] Picture that seems sweet love nest
Think what a year can bring
[Cyndi Lauper:] I'm with you

[Tony Bennett:] He's washin' dishes and baby clothes
[Cyndi Lauper:] He should
[Tony Bennett:] He's so ambitious, not really, he even sews
[Cyndi Lauper:] 2003, babe!
[Tony Bennett:] But don't forget folks, thats what you get folks
[Together:] For makin' whoopee

[Cyndi Lauper:] Another year
[Tony Bennett:] What
[Cyndi Lauper:] Or maybe less
What's this I hear, can't you guess?
[Tony Bennett:] No
[Cyndi Lauper:] Hum
[Tony Bennett:] She feels neglected
[Cyndi Lauper:] Hum hum
[Tony Bennett:] And he's suspected
[Cyndi Lauper:] That's right
[Together:] Of makin' whoopee

[Cyndi Lauper:] She sits alone, 'most every night
He doesn't phone nor even write
[Tony Bennett:] I forget the number
He says he's busy,
[Cyndi Lauper:] Hum, yeah!
[Tony Bennett:] But she says, is he?
[Cyndi Lauper:] Hum hum
[Together:] He's makin' whoopee

[Tony Bennett:] He doesn't make much money
[Cyndi Lauper:] Yeah, five hundred thousand per
[Tony Bennett:] Who told you that?
Some judge who thinks he's funny
[Cyndi Lauper:] Says, you pay six to her
He says: "Now judge, what if I fail?"
Judge says: "Bud, right into jail"
[Tony Bennett:]
You better keep her, I think it's cheaper

[Together:] Than makin' whoopee

[Tony Bennett:]
Yeah don't forget, folks
That's what you get, folks
For makin' whoopee
