The Barbershop Chord VERONICA & the QUARTET:
In the evening by the moonlight, you should drop,
you folks should drop down to the old barbershop.

VERONICA:
Old barbershop...
down in the great big rathskeller
where a swell colored fella,
by the name of Bill Jefferson Lord

QUARTET: played the piano while he'd sing a song
VERONICA: Mmm-mmm.
QUARTET: He just sang and played the whole night long.

VERONICA:
Till...one night a starry-eyed lady
they call lovable Sadie heard him playing that barbershop chord.

QUARTET: When he finished Sadie drew a sigh.
QUARTET: Everytime that she would catch his eye she'd cry...
VERONICA: Mr. Jefferson Lord.
QUARTET: Ooh-wah
VERONICA: play the barbershop chord
QUARTET: Ooh-wah
VERONICA: that soothing harmony
QUARTET: Ba da da da
VERONICA: it makes an
ALL 5: awful, awful, awful hit with me.
VERONICA: Play that strain
QUARTET: Ahhh
VERONICA: just to please me again
QUARTET: ahhh

VERONICA:
'Cause, Mister, when you start that minor part,
I feel your fingers slippin' and a-grippin' my heart.

QUARTET: Oh, Mr. Lord.
ALL 5: Play the barbershop chord
GUY from QUARTET: Mr. Jefferson Lord
VERONICA: Thomas Jefferson Lord
GUY from QUARTET: play that barbershop chord
VERONICA: play the barbershop chord
QUARTET: that soothing harmony
VERONICA: sweet harmony
ALL 5: makes a terrible, terrible, terrible
QUARTET: terr-boo-hoo-hoo-hoo (this is said while Veronica is still singing terrible)
VERONICA: hit with me.
QUARTET: Play that strain
VERONICA: Play that strain
QUARTET: just to please me again

VERONICA:
just to please me again.
'Cause, Mister, when you start that minor part,
I feel your fingers slippin' and a-grippin' my heart.
