Nancy Wilson

Nancy Wilson (born February 20, 1937) is an American singer with more than 70 albums, and three Grammy Awards. She has been labeled a singer of blues, jazz, cabaret and pop; a "consummate actress"; and "the complete entertainer." The title she prefers, however, is song stylist. She has received many nicknames including "Sweet Nancy", "The Baby", "Fancy Miss Nancy" and "The Girl With the Honey-Coated Voice". more »

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 in Lover's Lane she strayed, madam, 
Miss Otis regrets, she's unable to lunch today. 
When she woke up and found that her dream of 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 love down, madam, 
Miss Otis regrets, she's unable to lunch today. 
When the mob came and got her and dragged her from the jail, madam, 
They strung her upon the old willow across the way, 
And the moment before she died, 
She lifted up her lovely head and cried, madam
Miss Otis regrets, she's unable to lunch today. 
Miss Otis regrets, she's unable to lunch today.
