Recorded in 1958


This is from a Dizzie Gillespie/Sonny Stitt date. Sonny sits this one out.

Songwriters: Coslow/Johnston

In some secluded rendezvous,
That overlooks the avenue,
With someone sharing a delightful chat,
Of this and that,
And cocktails for two.

As we enjoy a cigarette,
To some exqiuisite chansonette,
Two hands are sure to slyly meet beneath a serviette,
With cocktails for two.

My head may go reeling,
But my heart will be o-be-di-ent,
With in-tox-i-cat-ing kisses,
For the principal in-gre-di-ent,

Most any afternoon at five,
We'll be so glad we're both alive,
Then maybe fortune will complete her plan,
That all began
with cocktails for two

Please share your favorite videos with your friends and colleagues

That's how we grow.
