Frank Sinatra - One For My Baby (And One More For The Road) Lyrics

It's quarter to three, there's no one in the place except you and me
So, set 'em up, Joe, I got a little story I think you should know
We're drinkin', 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, put another nickel in the machine
I'm feelin' so bad, can't you make the music easy and sad
I could tell you a lot, but you've got to be true to your code
Just make it one for my baby and one more for the road

You'd never know it but buddy, I'm a kind of poet
And I got a lot of things I'd like to say
And when I'm gloomy, won't you listen to me
Till it's talked away

Well that's how it goes and Joe, I know your gettin' anxious to close
And thanks for the cheer, I hope you didn't mind my bendin' your ear
But this torch that I found it's gotta be drowned or it soon might explode
So, make it one for my baby and one more for the road
The long, it's so long, the long, very long ...

  3. Jerry Dineen

    I think this is about eva garner divorcing him

  4. innuendo1282

    He's been interviewed with saying he always hated singing that song but I think it's one of his greater songs in his repertoire.

  5. Mark Daniele

    You may live to be 1,000 but I promise you never again shall you see nor hear such a voice render a song in such a manner.That little skinny kid from Hoboken.I miss him still.

    Great artists die, but great music lives on forever.

    2019 - I tried this on a barman when the place was empty. I was doing just great, until I lit up and he chased me out.

  10. Richard Wieder

    When I was just a little kid in the 50's my parents listened to this music so I did too, little did we know that this music would stay with me through out my life.

  40. James Murphy

    Fits Sinatra to a tee, but let's face it, musically, the tune is vastly over-rated----I don't care that it was composed by Arlen and Mercer.

  41. Peter Bellini

    Let's just say Sinatra had the keys to the Great American Songbook for a long , long while...maybe the best "keeper of our flame".

  42. Robert Crouse

    The greatest music video of all much emotion ..

  43. Samuel Rosenfeld

    Wit a great voice, Frank was also a humanitarian: bringing Sammy Davis Jr. into the limelight, and not playing gigs that restricted blacks, and Jews..

  44. Ciro S Garios

    simply great!

  45. Milly P

    Love that he's sitting there, singing with that iconic voice, smoking a cigarette.

    Jan Hammer

    Thanks Milly for checking in with us.

  46. Stewart Nicol

    Is this the first pop video?

  47. Cobra Action1

    Sinatra sang this for decades and this last version was the end of a long process of changes

  48. Ben Jonson


  49. MrFirststudentbus

    I'll bet that he thought of Ava Gardner while singing this song each time. Such a powerful and emotional song when he performed it.

    Bruce Scott

    MrFirststudentbus ...Ava really did a number on him.

  50. V P

    An American classic. To the old days gentlemen.

  51. frankwhite1ne

    Blade runner 2049

  52. джо одж


  53. Johnniersi Harris

    2018 and this man is still relevant!!!! Cheers

  54. mario masic

    Great song, will last forever

  55. Locke Jawe

    Man, I thought it was a revenge story about a guy finding his wife's murderer. And the 'one' in the song's title was the bullet that went into the killer's head.

  56. Fernando Fausto

    The Best Saloon Singer,

    Jan Hammer

    Thanks Fernando for tuning in.

  69. 1905Robb

    This song found me at my lowest. Lying in a piss covered mattress in a crack den bed sit high on whatever substance I preferred at the time I switched the channel to find this man serenading me with this song. Frank Sinatra. I’ve been a fan ever since, he has always been with me through my recovery his voice is so universal and inspiring. In a way I believe Sinatra found me, not the other way round.

    Jan Hammer

    Good luck in your battle to survive.
