We’re Staying Home Tonight song lyrics

Song lyrics to We’re Staying Home Tonight, sung by Eddie Cantor in Thank Your Lucky Stars

Verse

Thank you for your cordial invitation, Mrs. Jones,
But with nightclub life we’re through.
Non-essential spending brings inflation, Mrs. Jones,
So here’s what we’re planning to do:

Refrain 1

We’re staying home tonight,
My baby and me,
Doing the patriotic thing.
I’ve got my income-tax returns to hurdle,
And she’ll be saving mileage on her girdle.
Don’t want to roam tonight,
We’re snug as can be,
Hoping the phone will never ring.
The landlord never told us, when we moved in this flat,
That you can use the fireside for more than a chat.
We’re staying home tonight,
My baby and me,
Doing the patriotic thing.

Refrain 2

We’re staying home tonight,
My baby and me,
Having a patriotic time.
It’s not that Mommy doesn’t trust her Poppy,
It’s just that we don’t trust our old jalopy.
Don’t want to roam tonight,
We’re snug as can be,
Being alone is so sublime.
While I sit in my slippers, and munch a piece of fruit,
She’ll iron out the wrinkles in my victory suit.
We’re staying home tonight,
My baby and me,
Having a patriotic time.

We’ll play a game of rummy, it’s cheaper than the Ritz,
The winner gets a kiss, and just in case of a Blitz,
We’re staying home tonight,
My baby and me,
Having a patriotic time.

Her coffee could be sweeter, but I’m not in the dumps,
‘Cause ev’ry time she hugs me, it’s like two extra lumps.
We’re staying home tonight,
My baby and me,
Having a patriotic time.
