One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)

Writer(s): Johnny Mercer / Harold Arlen / arr. Nelson Riddle

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 drinking my friend, to the end of a brief episode
Make it one for my baby, and one more for the road
I know the routine, put another nickel in the machine
I feel kind of bad, can’t you make the music, easy and sad
I could tell you a lot, but it’s not in a gentleman’s code
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’ve got a lot of things I’d like to say
And if I’m gloomy, please listen to me, till it’s talked away
Well that’s how it goes, and Joe I know your gettin’
Anxious to close, thanks for the cheer
I hope you didn’t mind my bending your ear
But this torch that I found, It’s gotta be drowned, or it’s gonna explode
Make it one for my baby, and one more for the road
