Miss Otis Regrets

This song is by Gregory Porter and appears on the album Nat "King" Cole & Me (2017).

Miss Otis regrets
She's unable to lunch today
Madam
Miss Otis regrets
She's unable to lunch today
 
She is 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 from her dream
And found that her love was gone
Madam
She ran to the man
Who had led 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
 
Then the mob came and got her
And dragged her from the jail
Madam
They strung her up
On a willow across the way, oh
 
And the moment before she died
She lifted up her lovely head and cried
Madam
Miss Otis regrets
She's unable to lunch today, today
