Mel Tormé - Lulu's Back in Town (Live 1992)



[Announcer]
Mister Mel Tormé

[Intro]
You've heard about Margie
Heard about Dinah
Heard about Suzie
Ooh woo doo doo

[Verse 1]
I gotta get my old tuxedo pressed
Gotta sew a button on my vest
Tonight I've gotta look my best
'Cause Lulu's back in town

I gotta find a half a buck somewhere
Polish up my shoes and slick my hair
Get myself a boutonniere
Because Lulu's back in town

[Bridge]
You can tell all my pets
All my blondes and brunettes
Mister Otis regrets
He won't be around
You can tell the mailman not to call
I ain't comin' home until the fall
I might not get back home at all
Lulu...
[Scatting]

[Bridge]
You've heard about Margie
Heard about Dinah
Heard about Suzie
Ooh woo doo loo woo woo woo

[Verse 2]
I gotta get my old tuxedo pressed
Gotta sew a button on my vest
Tonight I gotta look my best for Lulu
I gotta find a few bucks somewhere
Polish up my shoes and slick my hair
Get myself a boutonniere for Lulu
Because Lulu's back in town

[Outro]
You can tell all my pets
All my blondes and brunettes
Mister Otis regrets
He won't be around
You can tell the mailman not to call
I ain't comin' home until the fall
I might not get back home at all
Lulu's back in town
Lulu's back in town
Lulu, Lulu, Lulu, Lulu, Lulu, Lulu, Lulu
Lulu's back, back in town
A-dooba-doo-doo-Lulu's back in town
Domo arigatou, ko sai mas
