In the Cool Cool Cool of the Evening

In the Cool Cool Cool of the Evening

Bing Crosby

In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Tell 'em I'll be there
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Save your pappy a chair

When the party's getting a glow on
And singin' fills the air
In the shank of the night
When the doin's are right

Well you can tell em I'll be there
I like a barbecue
I like to boil a ham
And I vote for bola baste stew

What's that?
I like a weenie bake, steak and a layer cake
And you'll get a tummy ache too
We'll rent a tent or a teepee

Let the town crier cry
"All's well!"
And if it's RSVP
This is what I'll reply

In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Tell 'em we'll be there
If you need a pair of freeloaders
To fracture your affair

I may even give them Pagliacci
Now stand back and give him air
If one can relax and we'll have a few yaks
And you can tell them we'll be there

"Oui," said the bumblebee
"Let's have jubilee."
"When?" said the prairie hen, "Soon?"
"Sure," said the dinosaur

"Where?" said the grisly bear
"Under the light of the moon."
"How about your brother, jackass?"
Everyone gaily cried

"Are you coming to the fracas?"
Ain't gonna blow it
"And all the respects," he sighed
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening

Tell 'em I'll be there
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Stick 'em on my hair
If perchance we look a bit peeked

Remember se la guerre
If we're still on our feet
And there's something to eat
Well you can tell them we'll be there

In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Tell 'em I'll be there
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Better save a chair

When the party's getting a glow on
And singin' fills the air
If there's gas in my hack
And my laundry is back

If there's room for one more
And you need me
Why sure
If you need a new face or a tenor or base

If I can climb out of bed and put a head on my head
Well you can tell 'em we'll be there.
