The Whiffenpoof Song

Song Author Meade Minnigerode , George S. Pomeroy og Ted Galloway Performer: Rudy Vallee Submitted by: Anonymous


[E7]To the [A]tables down at [F#7]Mory's, to the p[D]lace where [Bm7-5]Louis dw[E7]ells,
To the [D9]dear old [Bm7-5]Temple       [E7]bar we love so w[A]ell, [Edim]    [E7]    
Sing the W[A]hiffenpoofs ass[F#7]embled, with their g[D]lasses r[Bm7-5]aised on [E7]high,
And the ma[D9]gic of their [Bm7-5]singing ca[E7]sts a s[A]pell.[Edim]    [E7]    

[E7]Yes, the m[A]agic of their s[F#7]inging of the so[D]ngs we[Bm7-5] love so w[E7]ell,   
"Shall I [D9]Wasting"[Bm7-5] and "Mav[E7]ourneen" and the r[A]est;
[E7]We will [A]serenade our L[A7]ouis while [D9]life and voice shall l[Dm6]ast,    
Then we'll [A]pass and [D9]be forg[E7]otten [E7/9]with      [E7]the r[A]est. [E7]    

[E7]We're p[A]oor little l[F#m7]ambs who have [Bm7]lost our w[E7]ay:   
[Bm7]Baa! B[E7]aa! B[A]aa! [Edim]    [E7]    
[E7]We're l[A]ittle black [F#m7]sheep who have [Bm7]gone ast[E7]ray:   
[Bm7]Baa! B[E7]aa! B[A]aa! [Am7]    
[F#m]Gentlemen [F#m/E]songsters [Bm]off on a [Bm/A]spree,     
[E]Doomed from [E7]here to e[Am7]ternity;
[F#m]Lord have [F#m/A]mercy on [Bm7-5]such as[Fdim(iii)] we:          
B[D9]aa! B[E]aa! [A]Baa! [Am7]    

To the tables down at Mory's, to the place where [Bm7-5]Louis dwells,
To the dear old [Bm7-5]Temple bar we love so well,
Sing the Whiffenpoofs assembled, with their glasses r[Bm7-5]aised on high,
And the magic of their [Bm7-5]singing casts a spell.

Yes, the magic of their singing of the songs we[Bm7-5] love so well,
"Shall I Wasting"[Bm7-5] and "Mavourneen" and the rest;
We will serenade our Louis while life and voice shall last,
Then we'll pass and be forgotten with the rest.

We're poor little lambs who have lost our way:
Baa! Baa! Baa!
We're little black sheep who have gone astray:
Baa! Baa! Baa!
Gentlemen songsters off on a spree,
Doomed from here to eternity;
Lord have mercy on [Bm7-5]such as[Fdim(III)] we:
Baa! Baa! Baa!
