Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today,
madam

(Maxwell, what did you say?)
I said, "Miss Otis regrets she's unable to
lunch today"
(And, why can't she?)
She's sorry to be delayed
But last evening down in lover's lane she
strayed, madam
(Lover's lane? What on earth was she doing
there?)
I don't know, madam
But Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch
today

(Maxwell)
Yes, madam?
(What happened?)
When she woke up and found
That her dream of love was gone, madam
She ran to the man
Who led her so far astray
(Silly girl!)

And from under her velvet gown
she drew a gun and shot her lover down,
madam
(She should never wear velvet)
Nevertheless, Miss Otis regrets she's unable to
lunch today

(Maxwell)
Please don't snap, madam
(Sorry)
Thank you
(Were there any repercussions?)

When the mob came and got her
And dragged her from the jail, madam
(Mob, jail, how common!)
They strung her up on the old willow across
the way
(Frightening, messy!)
And the moment before she died
(Died?)
She lifted up her lovely head and cried,
madam
(What did she say?)
Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today
(Pity!)

And now Count Basie
