in the cool, cool, cool of the evening lyrics – bing crosby

in the cool, cool, cool of the evening
tell ’em i’ll be there
in the cool, cool, cool of the evening
save your pappy a chair

when the party’s getting a glow on
and singin’ fills the air
in the shank of the night
when the doin’s are right
well, you can tell ’em i’ll be there

i like a barbecue, i like to boil a ham
and i vote for bola baste stew
what’s that? i like a weenie bake
steak and a layer cake

and you’ll get a tummy ache too
we’ll rent a tent or a teepee
let the town crier cry, “all’s well!”
and if it’s rsvp, this is what i’ll reply

in the cool, cool, cool of the evening
tell ’em we’ll be there
if you need a pair of freeloaders
to fracture your affair

i may even give them pagliacci
now stand back and give him air
if one can relax and we’ll have a few yaks
and you can tell them we’ll be there

“oui” said the b*mblebee
“let’s have jubilee”
“when?” said the prairie
hen, “soon?”

“sure” said the dinosaur
“where?” said the grisly bear
“under the light of the moon”
“how about your brother, jack*ss?”

everyone gaily cried
“are you coming to the fracas?”
ain’t gonna blow it
“and all the respects” he sighed

in the cool, cool, cool of the evening
tell ’em i’ll be there
in the cool, cool, cool of the evening
stick ’em on my hair

if perchance we look a bit peeked
remember se la guerre
if we’re still on our feet
and there’s something to eat
well, you can tell them we’ll be there

in the cool, cool, cool of the evening
tell ’em i’ll be there
in the cool, cool, cool of the evening
better save a chair

when the party’s getting a glow on
and singin’ fills the air
if there’s gas in my hack
and my laundry is back

if there’s room for one more
and you need me, why sure
if you need a new face or a tenor or base
if i can climb out of bed and put a head on my head
well, you can tell ’em we’ll be there
