"Oh, hi! Is Miss Otis in?"
"Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today,"

Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today, madam
Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today, mmm
And she's sorry to be delayed
But last evening down at lover's lane
She strayed, 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 the man who had lead her so far astray
And from under her velvet gown
She drew a gun and shot her lover 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 up on the willow across the way
And the moment before she died
She lifted up her lovely head and cried, madam

Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch
Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today
