Surprise Party Lyrics

Surprise Party - Johnny Mercer & The Pied Pipers/Jo Stafford

Written by:Walter Bishop/Bob Hilliard

I had a surprise party for my baby

 

Made everyone promise not to put my baby wise

 

And now they're talkin' about the way it turned out

What a complete surprise

 

Some intimate friends came to greet my baby

 

And I was as busy as a bee around a hive

I took a look at the clock

 

Tickity tock

 

My baby was about to arrive

 

There were flowers on the table

 

Somethin' extra special on ice

 

I was glad that I was able

 

To have everything nice

Including chicken rice

Had everything all set then we waited

 

And I was delighted excited as could be

 

But when my baby walked in with somebody else

The most surprised party was me

 

I thought I was the perfect host

 

I had the lights turned low

 

I had my cappia amlod pose

 

I had my right there at my elbow

 

I had a lot of fancy knick knacks scattered about the place

 

Made sure to have plenty of doilies naido chantilly lace

 

Her favourite friends were gathered behind the big settee

 

And after we surprised here we were all going to make whoopee

 

Yes we planned to announce our engangement after we made some fudge

 

But somebody double crossed me

 

Someone who bore me a grudge

 

I had everything all set then we waited

 

And I was delighted excited as could be

 

But when my baby walked in with somebody else

 

The most surprised party was me
