"The Lady Is A Champ"

In honor of Mom’s 70th birthday, March 28, 2000

The Lady is a Champ
By Dan Silverman and Jerry Silverman and Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart

She rather nibble her way through a plate
She loves the temple, but often goes late
She's too demure with people she'd hate
That is why the lady is a champ

Doesn't like shopping, the lines she abhors
Won't go to Boca, finds tennis a bore
Won't wash the dishes, she hates doing chores
That’s why the lady is a champ

She loves the free stuff stores give away
She'd rather not pay
She's broke, but it's o'k
Loves bonny England, it's cold and it's damp
That's why the lady is a champ

Doesn't like sewing, she gets in a stitch
Won't go to Brooklyn, when parking's a bitch
Won't dish the dirt, since she ain't no snitch
That's why the lady is a champ

She loves the free stuff stores give away
She'd rather not pay
She's broke, but it's o'k
Loves bonny England, it's cold and it's damp
That's why the lady…
That's why the lady..
That's why the lady is a champ!
