Testo della canzone Elegance di Barbra Streisand
Album: Miscellaneous
Cornelius & barnaby:
Yes, new york
It’s really us
Barnaby and cornelius

Mrs. molloy & minnie:
All the guests of mr. hackl are
Feelin’ great and look spectacular

All:
What a knack
There is to that
Acting like a born aristocrat
We got elegance
If you ain’t got elegance
You can never ever carry it off

Cornelius:
All who are
Well-bred agree
Minnie fay
Has pedigree

Mrs. molloy:
Exercise your wildest whims tonight
We are out with diamond jims tonight

Minnie:
Could they be
Misleading us?

Cornelius & barnaby:
Silver spoons were used for feeding us

All:
We got elegance
If you ain’t got elegance
You can never ever carry it off

[dance interlude]

All:
Middle class
Don’t speak of it
Savoir faire
We reek of it
Some were born with rags and patches but
We use dollar bills for matches and

Minnie:
Vanderbilt
Kowtows to us

Cornelius:
J.p. morgan scrapes and bows to us

All:
We’ve got elegance
We were born with elegance

Barnaby:
I beheave like walter wally
When the streets are full of mud

Mrs. molloy:
And the bluest huckelberry isn’t bluer than my blood

Minnie:
Have you noticed when i hold my cup
The saucer never moves

Cornelius:
And the way i keep my pinky up
Indubitably proves that

All:
We got elegance
We got built in elegance
And with elegance…elegance…
Elegance…elegance…elegance
We’ll carry it off!

All:
We got elegance
If you ain’t got elegance
You can never ever carry it off
We got elegance…
