PEARL BAILEY SPEAKS
 

I thought the Blue Angel was It
until they asked me to work The Ritz,
an intimate room.

Why is everybody jumping up & down?
America is losing its great music,
dust is coming out of the curtains.

Canton Ohio, Milwaukee,
they had a ball out there,
Gershwin & Cole Porter.

Truth in being, honey,
thatís what Iím most proud of,
people wanna come before they can be.

But theyíre always asking me,
How does she do it?
