Cocktails For Two

Cocktails For Two
music by Arthur Johnston (center)
lyric by Sam Coslow (upper right)

Oh, what delight to be given the right to be carefree and gay once again.

No longer slinking, respectfully drinking like civilized ladies and men.

No longer need we miss a charming scene like this...

In some secluded rendezvous that overlooks the avenue,

With someone sharing a delightful chat of this and that with cocktails for two.

As we enjoy a cigarette to some exquisite chansonette,

Two hands are sure to slyly meet beneath the 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...
