I'll Meet You at the Ball Tonight

Zelda: 1900 - 1948

Year: 1918
Location
Zelda's home, 6 Pleasant Avenue, Montgomery, Alabama

The dance with her father ends and there's a knock at the door. A beau has turned up to take Zelda to the dance. A few minutes later there's another knock at the door, then another, and another. Zelda has overbooked her beaux! She doesn't want to turn any of them down and decides she'll make her own way there and meet them at the ball. She sings:-

No can figure, no can choose
Tails I win and tails I lose
I'll put on my dancing shoes
And I will meet you at the ball tonight.

Lucky me, you lucky guys
I must be in paradise
C'mon fellas harmonise
And I will meet you at the ball tonight.

(BEAUX)
Zelda don't you know we love you madly
We'll do anything you want us to, gladly
So put us out of misery.

(ZELDA)
How did I get in this jam
Don't think I don't give a ______
I'm sorry boys, I really am
And I will meet you at the ball tonight.

(BEAUX)
Things are swell in Alabama
Alabama is a wonderful world
Lost my heart in Alabama
Alabama you're a beautiful girl.

(ZELDA)
Boys forgive me pretty please
I don't mean to be a tease
Oh come on, get up off your knees
And I will meet you at the ball tonight.

(ZELDA)
I don't wish to be unkind
But I just can't make up my mind
I'll have to leave you all behind
But I will meet you at the ball tonight.

(BEAUX)
Zelda if you turn us down we're done for
We don't have no cover we can run for
So put us out of misery.

(ZELDA)
No can figure, no can choose
Tails I win and tails I lose
I'll put on my dancing shoes
And I will meet you at the ball tonight.

(Instrumental)

(BEAUX)
Lost my heart in Alabama
Alabama you're a beautiful girl.

(ZELDA)
No can figure, no can choose
Tails I win and tails I lose
I'll put on my dancing shoes
And I will meet you at the ball tonight.
I'll put on my dancing shoes
And I will meet you at the ball tonight - Hey!
