Testo della canzone One For My Baby (and One More For The Road) di Billie Holiday
Johnny mercer / harold arlen

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
I think you should know

We’re drinking my friend, to the end
Of a brief episode
Make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

I know the routine, put another nickel
In the machine
I feel kind of bad, can’t you make the music
Easy and sad

I could tell you a lot, but it’s not
In a gentleman’s code
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 i’d like to say
And if i’m gloomy, please listen to me
Till it’s talked away

Well that’s how it goes, and joe i know your gettin’
Anxious to close
Thanks for the cheer
I hope you didn’t mind
My bending your ear

But this torch that i found, it’s gotta be drowned
Or it’s gonna explode
Make it one for my baby
And one more for the road
