Barbra Streisand - "Medley" lyrics

Im wearing second hand shoes

Second hand hose

All the girls hand me

Their second hand clothes

Even my pajamas when I darn em

Have somebody elses

Initials on em

Second hand rings

Mmm... second hand things

I never get what other girlies do

Once while strolling

Through the ritz a girl got my goat...

She nudged her friend

And said oh look there goes

My old fur coat

I dont believe in

Frettin and grievin

Why mess around with strife

I never was caught out

To step and strut out

Give me the simple life

Some find a pleasant dining on pheasants

Those things roll off my comb

Just serve me tomatoes

And mashed potatoes

Any place I hang my hat is home

Oh, I got plenty o nothin

And nothins plenty for me

I got no car, I got no mule

I got no misery

Dont you see

I got no lock on my door

Thats okay with me

Cause the things that I prize

Like the stars in the skies are all free

I got plenty o nothin

And nothins plenty for me

Once I built a railroad

Made it run,

Made it race

Against time

Once I built a railroad

Now its done

Brother can you spare a dime'

Say dont you remember

They called me al

It was al all the time

Say dont you remember

Im your pal

Buddy can you spare a dime'

Nobody knows you

When youre down and out

In your pockets

Not one penny

And your friends

Well, you havent any

Soon as you get on your feet again

Everybody

Everybody

Is your long lost friend

Its mighty strange

Without a doubt

But nobody knows you

When youre down and out

Oh every one knows

That Im just second hand rose

>from second avenue

Ya cant beat the egg-creams

>from second avenue

There is more between me

And fifth avenue

Than three blocks

I tell ya

Second avenue

The flowers in spring

The robins that sing

The sun beam that shines

Theyre yours, theyre mine

And love can come to anyone

Because the best things in life are free
