Does anyone have the lyrics to this tune, or know where Ican find them?
Well, here's what I sing--(a Chicago version by Charlie Hooks):
Gotta get my old tuxedo pressed
Gotta sew a button on my vest (cause)
Tonight I've got to look my best!
Lulu's back in town.
Gotta find a half-a-buck somewhere,
Shine my shoes--slick my hair--
Gotta find myself a boutonierre (sp?)
You can tell all my pets
My near-north-side coquettes:
Charlie Hooks sends his regrets,
Ain't gonna be around!
You can tell the mailman not to call,
Ain't gonna git back home till Fall--
(spoken) In fact, I might not git home at all!
This is a fun tune with a great bass-loop bass line! Enjoy!
