She's a Lady
She's a Lady  ~ I'm a Lady!
She's a Lady  ~ I'm a Lady!
She's as quiet as a mouse 
Why, she would never ever raise her voice to a shout
Not unless somebody else is drownin' me out!
Yes, She's a Lady  ~ I'm a Lady!
High floutin'  ~ You're darn tootin'!
and her manners are superb 
Yesterday I wore a gown of satin an' lace, 
you took me out dinin' to the ritziest place
And when they brought the finger bowl, 
why you washed your face!
Ah! I'm a Lady! ~ She's a Lady  ~ Oh yeah!
He's a Lover! ~ I'm a Lover!
He's big hearted! ~ Once I've started!
Nothin' is good for you! 
Say, how do you mean that?
I bought you a golden necklace fit for a Queen
If that's a golden necklace, why's my neck turnin' green?
He's Romantic! ~ I'm Romantic!
He's the shy type! ~ Yes, it's my type!
He's the kind that girls can't trust! 
Some guys take a girl out ridin' an' when they do, 
she may have to walk home, that don't happen to you!
That's because I take them riding in a canoe
Oh! He's a lover! ~ I'm a lover  ~ Oh yeah!
She's a Lady  ~ I'm a Lady!
She's the fine type  ~ Home at nine type!
She's as gentle as a lamb! 
She's the most refined girl that the city has got
I will beat up anyone who says that I'm not! 
She's a High-Brow  ~ I'm a High-Brow!
You're what 'class' is!  ~ You need glasses!
You know just how things are done 
In a crowded bus, you find a guy with a seat 
then you drop your hanky so it lands at his feet
When he stands up to get it, that's when I grab his seat! 
Yes, She's a Lady  ~ I'm a Lady!  ~ Oh yeah!
He's a Singer! ~ I'm a Singer!
Like Caruso! ~ Learned to do so,
in a barber-shop quartet 
I once gave a hair-cut to a fellow one day 
I started singing "Mammy" an' kept cutting away
Yeah, now they call him 'baldy' an' he wears a toupee!
You're a Lady!  ~ You're a Barber!
You're a High-Brow!  ~ You're a Sin-ger!
Hee hee, I'm a Sin-ger?  ~ Ha, ha ha ha!
She's a Lady  ~ Ah! He's a Sin-ger!  ~ Oh yeah!
