It's quarter to three
There's no one in the place except you and me
So set'em up Joe
I got a little story you ought to know

We're drinking my friend
To the end of a brief episode
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

I got the routine
So drop another nickel in the machine
I'm feeling so bad
Wish you'd make the music pretty and sad

Could tell you a lot
But you gotta to be true to your code
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

You'd never know it
But buddy I'm a kind of poet
And I've got a lot of things to say
And when I'm gloomy, you simply got to listen to me
Till its all talked away

Well, that's how it goes
And Joe I know youre getting, pretty anxious to close
So thanks for the cheer
I hope you didnt mind
My bending your ear

This torch that I found
Must be drowned
Or it soon might explode
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road
That long, long road
