Lulu’s Back In Town

1935 – Al Dubin / Harry Warren

Gotta get my old tuxedo pressed, gotta sew a button on my vest
’cause tonight I’ve gotta look my best, Lulu’s back in town

Gotta get a half a buck somewhere, gotta shine my shoes and slick my hair
Gotta get myself a boutonniere, Lulu’s back in town

You can tell all my pets, all my Harlem coquettes
Mister Otis regrets, that he won’t be aroun’

You can tell the mailman not to call, I ain’t comin’ home until the fall
And I might not get back home at all… Lulu’s back in town
