Shall we dine out,
my dear, and dance the night away?
Don’t say you’re tired;
you know you haven’t worked all day.

We paid the rent
finally, and we’re free to be be free.
Come now and waltz
the Empty Pocket Waltz with me.

Let’s close our door
and make believe we’re all alone.
Grandma can’t hear,
and Baby’s sleeping like a stone.

We paid the doctor
his fee, and we’re free to be be free.
Come now and waltz
the Empty Pocket Waltz with me.

Why so unhappy?
Don’t be that way.
Maybe they’ll make me
queen for a day.

You’ll find a job,
probably, or be free, or be free.
Come waltz again
this Empty Pocket Waltz with me.
