Cocktails for Two (1934)
(m) Arthur Johnston (w) Sam Coslow. (I) Film: Murder at the Vanities by Carl Brisson. (CR) Duke Ellington Orchestra (R) 1945 Spike Jones
In some secluded rendezvous that overlooks the avenue,
With someone sharing a delightful chat
Of this and that and cocktails for two.
As we enjoy a cigarette in some exquisite chansonnette,
Two hands are sure to slyly meet
Beneath a serviette with cocktails for two.
My head may go reeling, but my heart will be obedient,
With intoxicating kisses for the principal ingredient.
Most any afternoon at five
We’ll be so glad we’re both alive.
Then maybe fortune will complete her plan
That all began with cocktails for two.
