Lyrics The Lady Is A Tramp

                            IВ’ve wined and dined on mulligan stew, and never wished for turkeyAs I hitched and hiked and grifted too, from maine to albuquerqueAlas, I missed the beaux arts ball, and what is twice as sadI was never at a party where they honored noel ca-ad (coward)But social circles spin too fast for meMy hobohemia is the place to beI get too hungry, for dinner at eightI like the theater, but never come lateI never bother, with people I hateThatВ’s why the lady is a trampI donВ’t like crap games, with barons and earlsWonВ’t go to harlem, in ermine and pearlsWonВ’t dish the dirt, with the rest of the girlsThatВ’s why the lady is a trampI like the free, fresh wind in her hairLife without careIВ’m broke, itВ’s oВ’kHate california, itВ’s cold and itВ’s dampThatВ’s why the lady is a trampI go to coney, the beach is devineI go to ballgames, the bleachers are fineI find a winchell, and read every lineThatВ’s why the lady is a trampI like a prizefight, that isnВ’t a fakeI love the rowing, on central park lakeI go to opera and stay wide awakeThatВ’s why the lady is a trampI like the green grass under my shoesWhat can I lose, IВ’m flat, thatВ’s thatIВ’m alone when I lower my lampThatВ’s why the lady is a trampTranscribed by todd peach ########################A few additional verses from the ella in berlin cd:Girls get massages, they cry and they moanTell slender ella to leave me aloneIВ’m not so hot, but my shape is my ownThatВ’s why the lady is a trampThe food at the kopensky is perfect, no doubtI couldnВ’t tell you wha the ritz is aboutDrop a nickle in, and coffee comes outThatВ’s why the lady is a trampLike the sweet, fresh, rain in my faceDiamonds and lace, no got, so what? !For frank sinatra, I whistle and stampThatВ’s why the lady is a trampSheВ’s a hoboSheВ’s a scampSheВ’s a no-good kinda trampThatВ’s why the lady is a tramp
