Another bride, another June
Another sunny honeymoon
Another season, another reason
For makin' whoopie
A lot of shoes, a lot of rice
The groom is nervous, he answers twice
It's really killin' that he's so willin'
To makin' whoopie
Picture a little love nest
Down where the roses cling
Picture the same sweet love nest
Think what a year can bring
He's washing dishes and baby clothes
He's so ambitious, he even sews
But don't forget folks, that's what you get folks
For makin' whoopie
Another year or maybe less
What's this I hear, well can you guess
She feels neglected, and he's suspected
Of makin' whoopie
She sits alone most every night
He doesn't phone her, he doesn't write
He says he's busy, but she says "is he?"
He's makin' whoopie
He doesn't make much money
Only five thousand per
Some judge who thinks he's funny
says you'll pay six to her
He says, "now judge suppose I fail?"
The judge says, "budge right into jail"
You'd better keep her, I think it's cheaper
Than makin' whoopie
You'd better keep her, I think it's cheaper
Than makin' whoopie
