Barbra Streisand - Cornet Man текст песни

Fanny convinces eddie she has talent and he agrees to teach her the specialty

For the next audition. she gets the job.



I just put the kids to sleep

And swept the shack,

Took my sweet mans satchel down

And watched him pack,

I said, "darlin, while the stove still smolders,

Unpin your womans hair and rub her shoulders."

I threw myself across the doorway

Beggin, "stay, sweet man, stay,"

But theres more in my mans life

Than this old hag.

Its jelly roll morton, and a shiny cornet,

And jazzin the rag!

The lady aint been born

Can take the place of a horn,

With a cornet man.

A-goin where theres blowin,

Travlin cornet man.

Just anytime they call him

Hell leave his wife and kiddies

Sittin with their tongues out

To play for peanuts in a dive

And blow his lungs out.

Hell hop a choo-choo on a moments notice

To play some dates with billy bates

Or rag-time otis!

The lady aint see light

Can give a horn a fair fight

With a cornet man

A rootin, shootin, ever-tootin dapper dan

Who carries in his satchel

A powder-blue norfolk suit,

A silver-plated wah-wah mute,

There is whiskey, gamblin--each one is a curse,

But Im up against a devil thats worse.

Yes, a horn is my thorn,

My travlin cornet man!

Kill yourself! tell me about it! yeah! yeah!

A powder-blue norfolk suit,

I said a silver-plated wah-wah mute,

Oh hes shy on height,

Hes short on weight,

But hes the only man can make my coffee perculate,

A dapper dan,

My cornet-playin man.

After the performance, nick arnstein comes backstage, elegant in formal dress,

To pay off a gambling debt to keeney. nick has seen the show and tells fanny

Shes going to be a big star some day. fanny asks how much keeney is paying her,

And nick manages to jack up her salary by pretending to bid on behalf of a competitor.

He gives her his card and kisses her hand. eddie asks fanny out for a date,

But she only wants to be friends; already she has fallen for nick, but imagines shell

Never see him again.
