Makin' Whoopee

Lyrics:Gus Kahn
Music:Walter Donaldson

The song was publishe 1928.

Composer Walter Donaldson and lyricist Gus Kahn wrote
“Makin’ Whoopee” for the 1928 Broadway show Whoopee!
where it was introduced by the star Eddie Cantor.
“Love Me or Leave Me,” which also became a jazz standard,
was introduced by Ruth Etting in the show.
Produced by Florenz Ziegfeld, the show ran for 379 performances
and would have run longer if Ziegfeld had not gone broke
and had to close the show.
According to David Ewen in the Complete Book of the American Musical Theater Ziegfeld had to sell the movie rights to Samuel Goldwyn
and release Cantor to act as consultant and star in the film.
The 1930 film, which closely follows the Broadway musical,
was Cantor’s first movie and made a star of him.
Whoopee! enjoyed a successful revival on Broadway in 1979.




Another bride, another June
Another sunny honeymoon
Another season, another reason
For makin' whoopee

A lot of shoes, a lot of rice
The groom is nervous, he answers twice
Its really killin'
That he's so willin' to make whoopee

Now picture a little love nest
Down where the roses cling
Picture the same sweet love nest
Think what a year can bring, yes

He's washin dishes and baby clothes
He's so ambitious he even sews
But don't forget folks,
Thats what you get folks, for makin' whoopee

Another year, maybe less
What's this I hear? Well, can't you guess?
She feels neglected, and he's suspected
Of makin' whoopee

Yeah, she sits alone,
Most every night
He doesn't phone, he doesn't write
He says he's busy,
But she says, "Is he?"
He's makin' whoopee

Now he doesn't make much money
Only five thousand per
Some judge who thinks he's funny
Says, "You'll pay six to her."

He says, "Now judge, suppose I fail?"
Judge say, "Budge. Right into jail.
You'd better keep her. I think it's cheaper
Than makin' whoopee."

Yes, yeah, you better keep her
Daddy, I think it's cheaper
Than makin' whoopee
