MIDI File

Kitty: I'm nothing more or less than Kitty Grey.
Just very ordinary Kitty Grey;
You've often passed me by when in the street
And never stopped to admire
my waist or dainty feet.
But when on the stage I am dancing,
You ought to hear the remarks that are made:
The men all say that I'm simply entrancing,
The ladies put down their iced lemonade.
It's no small wonder
My ears start a-burning;
I hear exactly the same thing ev'ry day.
My little head they are all bent on turning,
But no thanks! Kitty's not built that way.
Chorus: When on the stage I am dancing,
You ought to hear the remarks that are made:
The men all say that I'm simply entrancing,
The ladies put down their iced lemonade.
It's no small wonder
My ears start a-burning;
I hear exactly the same thing ev'ry day.
My little head they are all bent on turning,
But no thanks! Kitty's not built that way.
   
Kitty: I'm very much like other people are,
I had a father once, and a mamma:
I feel the cold sometimes, also the heat,
And then I sleep and I drink and I talk
and sometimes eat!
But when on the stage I am dancing,
You ought to hear the remarks that are made:
The men all say that I'm simply entrancing,
The ladies put down their iced lemonade.
It's no small wonder
My ears start a-burning;
I hear exactly the same thing ev'ry day.
My little head they are all bent on turning,
But no thanks! Kitty's not built that way.
Chorus: When on the stage I am dancing,

It's no small wonder

I hear exactly the same thing ev'ry day.
My little head they are all bent on turning,
But no thanks! Kitty's not built that way.
   
Kitty: In ev'ry day affairs I'm not unique.
I sometimes fall in love, for quite a week,
I'm not as good as gold, I'm not too bad.
I'm sometimes down in the dumps
and occasionally sad.
But when on the stage I am dancing,
You ought to hear the remarks that are made:
The men all say that I'm simply entrancing,
The ladies put down their iced lemonade.
It's no small wonder
My ears start a-burning;
I hear exactly the same thing ev'ry day.
My little head they are all bent on turning,
But no thanks! Kitty's not built that way.

But no thanks! Kitty's not built that way.
