Cocktails For Two

Album: Pure Ellington (1934)
  • 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
    To 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 twoWriter/s: ARTHUR JOHNSTON, SAM COSLOW
