Nat King Cole – Miss Otis Regrets Lyrics

(cole porter)

Miss otis regrets

She’s unable to lunch today.

Madam…

Miss otis regrets

She’s unable to lunch today.

She is sorry to be delayed,

But last evening down at lover’s lane, she strayed.

Madam…

Miss otis regrets

She’s unable to lunch today.

~interlude~

When she woke from her dream

And found that her love had gone,

Madam…

She ran to the man

Who had led her so far astray.

And from under her velvet gown,

She drew a gun and shot her lover down.

Madam…

Miss otis regrets

She’s unable to lunch today.

Then the mob came and got her

And dragged her from the jail.

Madam…

They strung her upon

A willow across the way.

And the moment before she died,

She lifted up her lovely head and cried.

Madam…

Miss otis regrets

She’s unable to lunch today.
