Smitty: Well, here it is five pm,
The finish of a long day's work;
And there they are, both of them,
The secretary and the clerk.
Not very well acquainted;
Not very much to say;
But I can hear those two little minds
Tickin' away.

Now she's thinking:

Rosemary: I wonder if we take the same bus?
Smitty: And he's thinking:
Finch: There could be quite a thing between us.
Smitty: Now she's thinking:
Rosemary: He really is a dear.
Smitty: And he's thinking:
Finch: But what of my career?
Smitty: And she says:
Rosemary: Hmm.
Smitty: And he says:
Finch: A hum heh.
Well, it's been a long day.
All: Well, it's been a long,
Been a long, been a long,
Been a long day.
Smitty: Now, she's thinking:
Rosemary: I wish that he were more of a flirt.
Smitty: And he's thinking:
Finch: I guess a little flirting won't hurt.
Smitty: Now she's thinking:
Rosemary: For dinner we could meet.
Smitty: And he's thinking:
Finch: We both have got to eat.
Smitty: And she says:
Rosemary: Achoo!
Smitty: And he says:
Finch: Gesundheit.
Well, it's been a long day.
All: Well, it's been a long,
Been a long, been a long,
Been a long day.
Smitty: Hey, there's a yummy Friday special at Stouffer's;
It's a dollar ninety vegetable plate
And on the bottom of the ad--not bad--
Service for two, three-fifty-eight.
(To make a bargain, make a date.)
Rosemary: Wonderful.
Finch: It's fate.
Smitty: Now she's thinking:
Rosemary: What female kind of trap could I spring?
Smitty: And he's thinking:
Finch: I might as well forget the whole thing.
Smitty: Now, she's thinking:
Rosemary: Suppose I take his arm.
Smitty: And he's thinking:
Finch: Well, really what's the harm?
Smitty: And she says:
Rosemary: Hungry?
Smitty: And he says:
Finch: Yeah!
Rosemary: Yeah!
Smitty: Yeah.
All: Well, it's been a long day.
Well, it's been a long,
Been a long, been a long,
Been a long day.
Well, it's been a long,
Been a long, been a long,
Been a long day.
