Testo della canzone ADELAIDE´S LAMENT di Barbra Streisand
Album: Unknown
(spoken) IT SAYS HERE IN THIS BOOK…
The average unmarried female
Basically insecure
Due to some long frustration
May react
With psychosomatic symptoms
Difficult to endure
Affecting the upper respiratory tract
In other words,
Just from waiting around
For that plain little band of gold
A person can develop a cold
You can spray her wherever you figure
The streptococci lurk
You can give her a shot
For whatever she’s got
But it just won’t work
If she’s tired of getting the fish-eye
From the hotel clerk
A person
Can develop a cold
(spoken) IT SAYS HERE…
The female remaining single
Just in the legal sense
Shows a neurotic tendency
(spoken) See note…see note
Note: Chronic organic syndromes
Toxic or hypertense
Involving the eye,
The ear, the nose and throat
In other words,
Just from wondering
Whether the wedding is on or off,
A person
Can develop a cough
You can feed her all day
With the Vitamin A
And the Bromo Fizz
But the medicine never
Gets anywhere near
Where the trouble is
If she’s getting a kind
Of name for herself
And the name ain’t
