In my last post, I mentioned Sammy Cahn's special lyrics for Frank Sinatra to sing while campaigning for Spiro T. Agnew.
On my radio show yesterday I also rediscovered Buddy Greco's swingin' version of the song with such lyrics as:
...She don't know the reason for cocktails at five
She don't like flying, but I'm glad I'm alive
I crave affection, baby, but not when I drive
That's why the lady is a tramp
She flew down to London and left me behind
I missed the crowning, but I didn't mind
She won't play Scarlett in Gone with the Whynd (It's gotta rhyme)
That's why the lady is a tramp...
It's fun. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2j_XEki3dQ
