Cornet Man - Barbra Streisand (芭芭拉·史翠珊)

Written by:Merrill Bob/Styne Jule

Well

 

I just put the kids to sleep

 

And swept the shack

 

Took my sweet man's satchel down

 

And watched him pack

 

I said Darlin' while the stove still smolders

 

Unpin your woman's hair and rub her shoulders

 

I threw myself across the doorway

 

Beggin' Stay sweet man stay

 

But there's more in my man's life

 

Than this old hag

 

It's Jelly Roll Morton and a shiny cornet

 

And jazzin' the rag

 

The lady ain't been born

 

Can take the place of a horn

 

With a cornet man

 

A-goin' where there's blowin'

Trav'lin' cornet man

 

Just anytime they call him

He'll leave his wife and kiddies

Sittin' with their tongues out

 

To play for peanuts in a dive

And blow his lungs out

He'll hop a choo-choo on a moment's notice

 

To play some dates with billy bates

Or Rag-time Otis

 

The lady ain't 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 I'm up against a devil that's worse

Yes a horn is my thorn

My trav'lin' cornet man

 

Kill yourself tell me about it

 

A powder-blue norfolk suit

 

I said a silver-plated wah-wah mute

 

Oh he's shy on height

 

He's short on weight

 

But he's the only man can make my coffee perculate

 

A Dapper Dan

 

My cornet-playin' man
