I[E7]n some secluded rendezv[A6]ous [Dm7b5] [A6]
That overlooks the aven[E7]ue [Edim] [E7]
With someone sharing a del[Bm7b5]ightful c[E7]hat
Of [Bm7b5]this and [E7]that and cock[A6]tails for[Edim] two. [E7]
A[E7]s we enjoy a cigar[A6]ette [Dm7b5] [A6]
To some exquisite chanson[E7]ette [Edim] [E7]
Two hands are sure to slyly [Bm7b5]meet bene[E7]ath
A [Bm7b5]sur-vi-e[E7]tte with cocktails for t[A6]wo. [D9] [A]
My head may go re[A7]el - [Edim]ing, [E7]
But my h[Dm6]eart will be o-[A]be-d[D9]ient [A]
With in[Cdim]toxicating [Bm7b5]kisses [E7]for the [Bm7b5]prin-ci-p[E7]al in-g[A]re- [Edim]dient. [E7]
M[E7]ost any afternoon at f[A6]ive [Dm7b5] [A6]
We'll be so glad to be al[E7]ive [Edim] [E7]
Then maybe fortune will [Bm7b5]complete her [E7]plan
That[Bm7b5] all be [E7]gan with co[A6]cktails for [D9]two. [A]
In some secluded rendezvous
That overlooks the avenue
With someone sharing a delightful chat
Of this and that and cocktails for two.
As we enjoy a cigarette
To some exquisite chansonette
Two hands are sure to slyly meet beneath
A sur-vi-ette with cocktails for two.
My head may go reel - ing,
But my heart will be o-be-dient
With intoxicating kisses for the prin-ci-pal in-gre-dient.
Most any afternoon at five
We'll be so glad to be alive
Then maybe fortune will complete her plan
That all began with cocktails for two.
