When We're Human
If I were a human being I'd head straight for New Orleans And I'd blow this horn so hot and strong Like no one they've ever seen You've heard of Louis Arsrong Mr. Sidney Bechet? All those boys gonna step aside When they hear this old ex-gator play, Listen When I'm human As I hope to be I'm gonna blow this horn 'Til the cows come home And everyone's gonna bow down to me When I'm myself again I want just the life I had A great big party every night That doesn't sound too bad A redhead on my left arm A brunette on my right A blonde or two to hold the candles Now that seems just about right Eh, Louis? Life is short When you're done, you're done We're on this earth To have some fun And that's the way things are When I'm human And I'm gonna be I'm gonna tear it up like I did before And that's the royal guarantee Your modesty becomes you And your sense of responsibility I've worked hard for everything I've got And that's the way it's supposed to be When I'm a human being At least I'll act like one If you do your best each and every day Good things are sure to come your way What you give is what you get My daddy said that And I'll never forget And I commend it to you When we're human And we're gonna be I'm gonna blow my horn I'm gonna live the high life I'm gonna do my best To take my place in the sun When we're human
