Frank Sinatra Well, Did You Evah Lyrics

Last updated: 09/28/2014 06:58:04 PM

MIKE:
I have heard among this clan
You are called a forgotten man

DEXTER:
Is that what they're sayin'?
Well, did you evah!
What a swell party this is!

MIKE:
And have you heard the story of
A boy, a girl, unrequited love?

DEXTER:
Sounds like pure soap opera

MIKE:
I may cry

DEXTER:
Tune in tomorrow

DEXTER:
What a swell party this is
What frills, what frocks

MIKE:
What broads

DEXTER:
What furs, what rocks

MIKE:
They're beautiful

DEXTER:
Why, I've never seen such gaiety

MIKE:
Neither did I!

DEXTER:
It's all just too, too exquis, really

MIKE:
This French champagne

DEXTER:
Domestic

MIKE and DEXTER:
So good for the brain

MIKE:
That's what I was gonna say!

DEXTER:
You know you're a brilliant fellow?

MIKE:
Thank you

DEXTER:
Drink up, chap.
Ah, please don't eat that glass, my friend.
Have you heard about dear Blanche?
Got run down by an avalanche.

MIKE:
No!

DEXTER:
Don't worry.
She's a game girl, you know.
Got up and finished fourth.

MIKE:
This kid's got guts.

DEXTER:
Havin' a nice time?
Grab a line

MIKE:
Have you heard that Mimsy Starr

DEXTER:
Oh, what now?

MIKE:
She got pinched in the Astor bar

DEXTER:
Sauced again, hey?

MIKE:
She was stoned!

DEXTER:
Well, did you evah?

MIKE:
Never!

MIKE and DEXTER:
What a swell party this is!

MIKE:
It's great

DEXTER:
Ah, it's great

MIKE:
It's grand

DEXTER:
So grand

DEXTER and MIKE:
It's wonderland!

DEXTER:
We sing

MIKE:
We sing

DEXTER:
So rare

MIKE
So rare

DEXTER and MIKE:
Like old Camembert
Like baba au rhum

DEXTER:
Ba, ba, ba bum!

Mike:
Don't dig that kind of crooning, chum!

DEXTER:
You must be one of the newer fellows!

DEXTER and MIKE:
Have you heard?
It's in the stars
Next July we collide with Mars
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party, a swell party, a swellegant, elegant party this is!

DEXTER:
I drink to your health

MIKE:
Nah! Let's drink to your wealth

DEXTER:
You're my bon ami

MIKE:
Hey, that's French!

DEXTER:
Liberty

DEXTER and MIKE:
Fraternity
Have you heard?
It's in the stars
Next July, we collide with Mars.
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party, swell party, swellegant, elegant party this is!

Just logged in to hear "What a Swell Party This Is," my all-time favorite musical comedy number. I know every word, every double-take (Sinatra's so good at that), and bubble of the domestic champagne Bing and Frank consume.
Then I heard a word - "ek-skee" - that I just had to look up. Ready? It's "Exquis", which must be the swellegant version of "exquisite, which Cole Parter must have muttered every time he wrote a line.
