...the long, long road. I love this song, and I guess I love to reminisce too. Better Midler sang this song to Johnny Carson on his last night on television ever....I love Sinatra's version and I of course give huge kudos to him and composer Harold Arlen. Hope you like my version too!

I can almost smell the whiskey.

Lyrics

A quarter to three
There's no one in the place
Exept you and me
So, set 'em up, Joe
I got a little story you oughta know
We're drinkin', my friend,
To the end of a brief episode
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 feelin' so bad
Wish you'd make the music dreamy and sad
Could tell you a lot
But you've got 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 got a lot of things to say
And when I'm gloomy
You simply gotta listen to me
Till it's talked away

Well that's how it goes and Joe, I know
You're gettin' anxious to close
So, thanks for the cheer,
I hope you didn't mind my bendin' your ear
This torch that I found must be drowned
Or it soon might explode
Make it
ONE FOR MY BABY
and one more for the road
That long, long road
