  • Cocktails for three
    Oh it's gettin' to me
    Yeah passin' afternoons
    Sittin' in these cocktail rooms
    Ah from nine to five
    I'm in the pink
    'Cause after work
    We go for a drink

    But
    He shows up every time
    Just as I clink
    Your daiquiri to mine
    Oh cocktails for three
    It's not natural to me
    Hey not for me and you
    Should be, cocktails for two
    Just sittin' here with that fellow and you
    Tryin hard to act mellow, when I'm blue

    Ah whoo-whoo
    Cocktails for three
    It's too kinky for me
    Best let it go and be done
    Just stick to, cocktails for one
    Now he's just another lonely business man
    Sittin in a lonely business land
    His story is on every jukebox
    And his life, like his drinkin'
    Is on the rocks

    Yeah
    His life, like his drinkin'
    Is on the rocks
