CANCIONERO MONGO


ONE FOR MY BABY (AND ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD)


It's a quarter to three, no one in the place
except you and me
So set 'em up joe
I got a little story I think you oughtta know


were drinking my friend
To the end of a brief episode
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

I know the routine
Put another nickel in that there machine
I'm feeling so bad
wont you make the music easy and sad

I could tell you a lot
But you gotta to be true to your code
So 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 wanna say
And if I'm gloomy, please listen to me
Till it's all, all alked away

Well, thats how it goes

and joe I know you're gettin' anxious to close
So 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 soon might explode

So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road
