lyrics

Swanee
She's Little Swanee
She's an uncommon woman
You'll see

Though, Swanee, no she ain't much
An aging cabaret singer
With tastes oh so out of touch
It strikes you when you see her

She took her name from an old song
By Gershwin/Caesar and sang by Jolson

Swanee
She's Little Swanee
And she's little concerned
With what should be

Every week, she's onstage
In front of empty seats
And for years, her only wage
Was to hear her own heartbeats

She may be an ugly duckling
That just won't turn into a dazzling swan
Oh Swanee

In the land of the blind
The one-eyed man is king
So with all those people
Who can't see a thing
Then she's got to be a queen
Queen of the unseen

So she'll go on and she'll sing
Until she hears the gong
That dreadful sound announcing
It's time for her swan song

You may be right about Swanee
She's a little looney
Yeah, she's a lot like me

Swanee (X4)
