Haben Sie Gehort das Deutsche Band

- from the musical "The Producers"

Haben sie gehort das Deutsche Band
Mit a bang
Mit a boom
Mit a bing-bang bing-bang boom
Oh, haben sie gehort das Deutsche Band
Mit a bang
Mit a boom
Mit a bing-bang bing-bang boom
Russian folksongs und French oo-la-la
Can't compare with a German oom-pah-pah!
Ve're saying
Haben sie gehort das Deutsche Band
Mit a zetz, mit a zap, mit a zing
Polish polkas, they're stupid und they're rotten
It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that
Schweigen-reigen-schone-schutzen-schmutzen-sauerbraten!
Key change!
Ve're saying
Haben sie gehort das Deutsche Band
Mit a zetz, mit a zap, mit a zing
It's ze only kind of musik
Zat ve huns und our honeys
Love to sing!

Max: That's our Hitler!

~*~*~*

Closing Farewell

Thanks for coming to see our show
Sad to tell you we got to go
Grab your hat und head for the door
In case you didn't notice, there ain't any more
If you like our show, tell everyone but
If you think it stinks, keep your big mouth shut!
We're glad you came but we have to shout
Adios, au revoir, auf Wiedersehen, ta-ta-ta
Guut-bye
Get lost
Get out!

The River Of No Return 大江東去 Jan 9, 2008

The River of No Return
Marilyn Monroe

There is a river called THE RIVER OF NO RETURN
Sometimes it's peaceful and sometimes wild and free!
Love is a trav'ler on THE RIVER OF NO RETURN
Swept on for ever to be lost in the stormy sea
Wail-a-ree I can hear the river call [ no return, no return ]
Where the roarin' waters fall wail-a-ree
I can hear my lover call come to me [ no return, no return ]
I lost my love on the river and for ever my heart will yearn
Gone gone for ever down THE RIVER OF NO RETURN
Wail-a-ree wail-a-re-e-ee
She'll/He'll never return to me! [ no return, no return, no return

Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend

The French were bred to die for love
They delight in fighting duels
But I prefer a man who lives
And gives expensive jewels
A kiss on the hand may be quite continental
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
A kiss may be grand but it won't pay the rental
On your humble flat, or help you at the automat
Men grow cold as girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end
But square cut or pear shaped
These rocks don't lose their shape
Diamonds are a girl's best friend

Tiffany's, Cartier
Talk to me, Harry, Winston, tell me all about it
There may come a time when a lass needs a lawyer
But diamonds are a girl's best friend

There may come a time when a hard boiled employer
Thinks your awful nice
But get that ice or else no dice
He's your guy when stocks are high
But beware when the start to descend
It's then that those louses go back to their spouses
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
I've heard of affairs that are strictly platonic
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
And I think affairs that you must keep liaisonic
Are better bets if little pets get big baggettes
Time rolls on and youth is gone
And you can't straighten up when you bend
But stiff back or stiff knees
You stand straight at Tiffany's

Diamonds
Diamonds
I don't mean rhinestones
But Diamonds
Are A Girl's Best Friend

You're welcome, chance.

People like Carol Channing don't become stars for no good reason. She's an extremely talented entertainer although she doesn't necessarily have a great singing voice.

Bea Arthur is another good example ...

The Man In The Moon

- From "Mame"

I have a little secret I'd like to impart
That I hope doesn't give you too much of a start
Though it's shocking, it's completely true
Now I know it isn't gossip or rumor, of course
For I've had it from quite a reliable source
And I'd like to pass it on to you

The man in the moon is a lady
A lady with lipstick and curls
The cow that jumped over
Cried "Ah, Jumping Jehovah!
I think it's just one of the girls"
She winks at the stars
From her bed of green cheese
That isn't a nightgown
It's a Saturn chemise
Her friends are the stars and the planets
She sends the Big Dipper a kiss
So don't ever offend her
Remember her gender
The man in the moon is a miss

Mame's opening number Jan 10, 2008

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=AhVBHjL92MI

It's Today (Leslie Uggams)

- from the musical "Mame"


Light the candles
Get the ice out
Roll the rug up
It's today
Though it may not be anyone's birthday
And though it's far from the first of the year
I know that this very minute
Has history in it, we're here

It's a time for
Making merry
And so I'm for
Making hay
Tune the grand up
Dance your shoes off
Strike the band up
It's today!


Light the candles
Fill the punch bowl
Throw confetti
It's today
Life can also be lived on a weekday
So don't depend on a holiday date
If you need New Year's to bubble
Then order a double, and wait

There's a thank you
You can give life
If you live life
All the way
Tune the grand up
Call the cops out
Strike the band up
Pull the stops out
Hallelujah
It's today!

Lullaby Of Broadway Jan 10, 2008

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ro_Zxi-0-8


Lullaby Of Broadway (Jerry Orbach, Lee Roy Reams, and chorus)

- from the musical "42nd Street"

Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Broadway
The hip hooray and ballyhoo
The lullaby of Broadway
The rumble of the subway train
The rattle of the taxis
The Daffy Dills who entertain
At Angelo's and Maxie's
When a Broadway baby says "Good-night"
It's early in the morning
Manhattan babies don't sleep tight
Until the dawn
Good-night, baby
Good-night, milkman's on his way
Sleep tight, baby
Sleep tight, let's call it a day
Listen to the lullaby of old Broadway


Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Broadway
The hidee-hi and boopdee-doo
The lullaby of Broadway
The band begins to go to town
And everyone goes crazy
You rockaby your baby 'round
'Til everything gets hazy
"Hushaby, I'll buy you this and that"
You hear a daddy saying
And baby goes home to her flat
To sleep all day
Good-night, baby
Good-night, milkman's on his way
Sleep tight, baby
Sleep tight, let's call it a day
Listen to the lullaby of old Broadway


Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Broadway
The hip hooray and ballyhoo
The lullaby of Broadway
The rumble of the subway train
The rattle of the taxis
The Daffy Dills who entertain
Until the dawn

... I'll do it!

Come along, come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Broadway
The hidee-hi and boopdee-doo
The lullaby of Broadway
The band begins to go to town
And everyone goes crazy
You rockaby your baby 'round
And sleep all day
Listen to the lullaby of old Broadway

Another big song and dance number from "Mame" Jan 10, 2008

A link I posted on this before no longer works. So here it is again ...


http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=jUxZd1exbmw&NR=1


Mame (Robert Preston, Lucille Ball, and chorus)

- from the movie musical "Mame"


You coax the blues right out of the horn, Mame
You charm the husk right off of the corn, Mame
You've got the banjoes strummin'
And plunkin' out a tune to beat the band
The whole plantation's hummin'
Since you brought Dixie back to Dixie land

You make the cotton easy to pick, Mame
You give my old mint julep a kick, Mame
Whoever thought a Yankee would put
Our little Dixie girls to shame
You've made us feel alive again
You've given us the drive again
To make the South revive again, Mame

You've brought the cakewalk back into style, Mame
You make the weepin' willow tree smile, Mame
Your skin is Dixie satin
There's rebel in your manner and your speech
You may be from Manhattan
But Georgia never had a sweeter peach

You make the old magnolia tree blush, Mame
You make camelias bloom in the mud, Mame
You make the bougainvillea
Turn purple at the mention of your name
We're baking pecan pies again
Tonight the chicken fries again
This time the South will rise again, Mame

... Mame
... Mame
... Since you brought Dixie back to Dixie Land

You make our black-eyed peas and our grits, Mame
Seem like the bill of fare at the Ritz, Mame
You came, you saw, you conquered
And absolutely nothing is the same
You're special fascination'll
Prove to be inspirational
We think you're just sensational, Mame


You coax the blues right out of the horn, Mame
You charm the husk right off of the corn, Mame
You've got the banjoes strummin'
And plunkin' out a tune to beat the band
The whole plantation's hummin'
Since you brought Dixie back to Dixie land

You make the cotton easy to pick, Mame
You give my old mint julep a kick, Mame
Whoever thought a Yankee would put
Our little Dixie girls to shame
You've made us feel alive again
You've given us the drive again
To make the South revive again
Mame, Mame, Mame, Mame
Mame!

Repost of a song from "Annie" - a different performance though Jan 13, 2008

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RhjSlzwrT4


You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile

- From the musical "Annie"


Hey, hobo man
Hey, Dapper Dan
You both got your style
But brother, you're never fully dressed without a smile

Your clothes may be
"Beau Brummelly"
They stand out a mile
But brother, you're never fully dressed without a smile

Who cares what they're wearing
On Main Street or Saville Row
It's what you wear from ear to ear
And not from head to toe
That matters

Doo-doodle-do-doot, doo-doodle-do-doot
Doo-do-do-do-do-do-doot

So, Senator
So, janitor
So long for awhile
Remember you're never fully dressed without a smile


Who cares what they're wearing
On Main Street or Saville Row
It's what you wear from ear to ear
And not from head to toe
That matters

So, Senator
So, janitor
So long for awhile
Remember you're never fully dressed
Though you may wear the best
You're never fully dressed
Without a smile, smile, smile
Smile, darn ya, smile!


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Errata to the lyrics for the song "Mame" in the previous post
------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was just watching the movie "Mame". There are two places where the lyrics need some correction ...

You make the old magnolia tree bud, Mame

Whoever thought a Yankee would put our little Dixie belles to shame

The Mikado Jan 13, 2008

... A Gilbert and Sullivan operetta that I used to listen to from start to finish all the time during the days of the Cultural Revolution

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=mXWkIZUPmDY


Three Little Maids From School

- from the movie "Topsy Turvy"

Three little maids from school are we
Pert as a schoolgirl well can be
Filled to the brim with girlish glee
Three little maids from school

Everything is a source of fun
Nobody's safe, for we care for none
Life is a joke that's just begun
Three little maids from school

Three little maids who, all unwary
Come from a ladies' seminary
Freed from its genius tutelary
Three little maids from school
Three little maids from school

One little maid is a bride, Yum-Yum
Two little maids in attendance come
Three little maids is the total sum
Three little maids from school

From three little maids take one away
Two little maids remain, and they
Won't have to wait very long, they say
Three little maids from school
Three little maids from school

Three little maids who, all unwary
Come from a ladies' seminary
Freed from its genius tutelary
Three little maids from school
Three little maids from school


The movie "Topsy Turvy" is a riot too, BTW - lots of humor.
