Set ‘em up Joe (tribute to Doris Day)
Oh Doris the songs of joy you gave us
and the fabulous movies you graced
I was Bewitched by your Precious Love
As we were Making Whoopie on
The Black Hills of Dakota,
whilst on a Sentimental Journey.
Night and Day you were the Teachers Pet
Oh Close your Eyes and Fly me to the Moon
Move over Darling and let us share our Secret Love
I will sing you the Lullaby of Broadway
Then after some Pillow Talk, sleep well
sweetheart and Dream a little dream of Me.
I’m Ready, Willing and Able Doris,
so Let’s face the music and Dance,
take to the dance floor one last time
and Rip crack Away!
And remember you are a much loved movie star,
singer and heroine, so
Please Don’t eat the Daisies. RIP
