In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening

In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Tell 'em I'll be there
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Save your pappy a chair
Oh, when the party's getting a glow on
And singing fills the air
In the shank of the night
When the doings are right
Well, you can tell 'em I'll be there
 
I like a barbecue
I like to boil a ham
And I vote for bouillabaisse stew ("What's that?")
I'd like a weenie bake, steak and a layer cake
And you'll get a tummy ache too
We'll rent a tent or a teepee
Let the town crier cry ("All's well!")
And if it's RSVP
This is what I'll reply:
 
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Tell 'em we'll be there
If you need a pair of freeloaders
To fracture your affair
I may even give them Pagliacci
Now stand back and all give him air
If one can relax and we'll have a few yaks
And you can tell 'em we'll be there
 
"Oui," said the bumblebee, "let's have a jubilee"
"When?" said the prairie hen, "soon?"
"Sure," said the dinosaur
"Where?" said the grizzly bear
"Under the light of the moon"
"How 'bout your brother, jackass?"
Everyone gaily cried
"Are you coming to the fracas?" ("Ain't gonna blow it")
"And all the respects," he sighed
 
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Tell 'em I'll be there
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Slickum on my hair
If perchance we look a bit peaked
Remember c'est la guerre
If we're still on our feet
And there's something to eat
Well, you can tell 'em we'll be there
 
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Tell 'em I'll be there
In the cool, cool, cool of the evening
Better save a chair
When the party's getting a glow on
And singing fills the air
If there's gas in my hack
And my laundry is back
If there's room for one more
And you need me ("Why sure")
If you need a new face or a tenor or base
If I can climb out of bed and put a hat on my head
Well, you can tell 'em we'll be there
