Song Description

Let's Make A Date was inspired as Johnny toured the world with Liza Minnelli as her piano man and guest artist. Liza joins Johnny in this swinging duet. Your foot will be a tappin' as they coax each other to take some time out for a little bit of huggin' and kissin'. Enjoy Liza's orchestra as they bring that big band sound alive along with Johnny Rodgers Band. Note that this was "Pappy" Bill LaVorgna's (Liza's long time music director) last recording prior to his passing. We dedicate this song to his lasting memory.

Lyrics

LET'S MAKE A DATE
Words by Johnny Rodgers/BL Green
Music by Johnny Rodgers


We got standing O's in San Antoine',
San Diego and Sante Fe (that's right)
Two more nights in Tucson,
Then we're on the way to San Jose.
Well I love this band and my baby grand
But there's something I've been missing
Liza take your bow and let's make a vow
To make more time for some huggin and a-kissin.

Call me stupid, some times cupid needs a shove,
(I'll say)
Let's not wait, let's make a date to fall in love.

Oooh Johnny, come with me to Germany
Get a little bit of Italy and Rome.
Let's go sing and dance in Paris France
There's a chance we might not come home,
I've got lots of fans in exotic lands
But there's something I've been missing.
Baby, take your bow and let's make a vow
To make more time for some huggin and a-kissin.

If they plan it - in the planets up above
Let's tempt fate, let's make a date to fall in love.

Who needs these private jets?
Who needs jet-black limousines?
Who needs to be the cover of another magazine?
You'll be my cover girl for all the world to see...
Oh Johnny that sounds so great
But listen honey - Can I see some ID?

Long past due time, cause it's you I'm dreaming of
Let's not wait, let's make a date to fall in love.

Honey - this duet's got me soaking wet,
I 'm hot just like an oven.
So let's take a bow and let's make a vow
To head back home for a little bit of lovin'.

Long past due time, cause it's you I'm dreaming of
Let's not wait, let's make a date
Let's not wait, let's celebrate
Let's not wait, let's make a date
To fall in love!
