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 Lovers 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

When the mob came and got her and dragged her from the jail, madam
They strung her up on that 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

Yes, the moment before she died, she lifted up her lovely head and cried, madam
Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today
