One For My Baby lyrics

Its a quarter t three,
Theres no one in the place except you an me.
So, set em up joe, Ive got a little story that you otta kno.
Were drinkin my friend, t the end of a brief episode,
Make it one for ma baby an one more for the road . . .

I got the routine, so drop another nickel in the machine,
Im feelin so bad, I wish youd make the music dreamy an sad,
Could tell you a lot, but youve got to be true to your code
Make it one for ma baby, one more for the road . . .

Youd never kno it, but buddy, Im kind of a poet,
And Ive got a lot of things to say.
And when Im gloomy, you simply gotta listen to me,
Until its talked away . . .

Well, thats how it goes, and joe I kno youre gettin anxious t close,
So thanks for the cheer, I hope you didnt mind my bendin your ear . . .
This torch that Ive found, must be drowned or it soon will explode,
Make it one for ma baby, an one more for the road . . .

That long, long road!
