Rosemary Clooney (May 23, 1928 – June 29, 2002) was an American singer and actress. She came to prominence in the early 1950s with the novelty hit "Come On-a My House" written by William Saroyan and his cousin Ross Bagdasarian (better known as David Seville, the father figure of Alvin and the Chipmunks), which was followed by other pop numbers such as "Botch-a-Me" (a cover version of the Italian song Ba-Ba-Baciami Piccina by Alberto Rabagliati), "Mambo Italiano", "Tenderly", "Half as Much", "Hey There" and "This Ole House", although she had success as a jazz vocalist.

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.
