Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today Madam Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today She is sorry to be delayed But last evening down in Lover's Lane she strays Madam Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today When she woke up and found that her dream of love was gone Madam She ran to Miss Otis Regrets (Shes Unable To Lunch Today) - Ella Fitzgerald - Newport Jazz Festival Live At Ca man who had led her so far astray And from under her velvet gown She drew a gun and shot her love down Madam Miss Otis regrets, she's unable to lunch today When the mob came and got her and dragged her from the jail Madam They strung her upon the old willow across the way The Boss Hog Barbarians - Every Hog Has Its Day Instrumentals the moment before she died She lifted up her lovely head and cried Madam Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today Edit Lyrics Edit Wiki Add Video.

Then, I listened to it again, and you can just hear Miss Otis crying in Ella's voice. Absolutely wonderful. It almost makes me want to cry. No Replies Log in to reply. There was an error. I particularly like this song--don't know why. But the first time I heard this song--heard it without really listening for the tune or the words, really heard it--was just now, after a mini-fight with a friend not really a fight, we exchanged insults but as far as I can tell we're still friends.
I was kind of hurt by the things she said, though I didn't show it before. And this was the first time I ever thought of this song as really, truly sad, and not just a story of a woman with an odd name. I believe this song was composed in a very short space of time as a result of Cole Porter being told in a restaurant by the waiter that his expected guest was delayed: Waiter: "Sir, I have a message for you - Miss Otis regrets she's unable Bach Goes To Town - Benny Goodman - Swing, Swing, Swing lunch today".
Cole Porter's imagination was excited by the possible reason and he coined the rather outlandish excuse as given in the lyrics! Rate These Lyrics. Log in now to add this track to your mixtape!
