The Lady is a Tramp - Martine McCutcheon

I've wined and dined on Mulligan stew
And never wished for turkey
As I hitched and hiked and grifted, too,
From Maine to Albuquerque.
Alas, I missed the Beaux Arts Ball,
And what is twice as sad,
I was never at a party
Where they honored Noel Ca' ad.
But social circles spin too fast for me.

My Hobohemia is the place to be.

I get too hungry for dinner at eight
I like the theatre and never come late
I never bother with people I hate
That's why the lady is a tramp
I don't like crapgames with barons or earls
Won't go to Harlem in ermine and pearls
Won't dish the dirt with the rest of the girls
That's why the lady is a tramp
I like the free fresh wind in my hair,
Life without care
I'm broke and it's ok
Hates California, it's cold and it's damp
That's why the lady is a tramp
I love the free fresh wind in my hair

Life without care. I'm broke but it's ok
Hates California, it's so cold and so damp
That's why the lady is a tramp

And I love it

Yes I 'm a tramp,and I love it
And I wish that you're coming my way

I wish that you're coming my way

I wish that you're coming my way

Yes I'm a lady by a tramp
