Gwen Verdon

Gwenyth Evelyn “Gwen” Verdon (January 13, 1925 – October 18, 2000) was an actress and dancer who won four Tony awards for her musical comedy performances and served as uncredited choreographers assistant and specialty dance coach for both theater and film. With flaming red hair and an endearing quaver in her voice, Verdon was a critically acclaimed performer on Broadway in the 1950s and 1960s. Having originated many roles in musicals she is also strongly identified with her second husband, director–choreographer Bob Fosse, remembered as the dancer–collaborator–muse for whom he choreographed much of his work and as the guardian of his legacy after his death. more »

Tonight at eight, you shoulda seen
A chauffeur pull up in a rented limousine
My neighbors burned, they like to die
When I tell them who is gettin' in and goin' out is I

If they could see me now, that little gang of mine
I'm eating fancy chow and drinking fancy wine
I'd like those stumble bums to see for a fact
The kind of top drawer, first rate chums I attract
All I can say is, "Wow-ee", looka where I am
Tonight, I landed, pow, right in a pot of jam

What a set up, holy cow, they'd never believe it
If my friends could see me now, if they could see me now

My little dusty group, traipsin' 'round this million dollar chicken coop
I'd hear those thrift shop cats say, "Brother, get her
Draped on a bed spread made from three kinds of fur"
All I can say is, "Wow, wait till the riff an' raff
See just exactly how he sign this autograph"

What a build up, holy cow, they'd never believe it
If my friends could see me now, if they could see me now

Alone with Mister V., who's waiting on me like he was a maitre d'
I'd hear my buddies saying, "Crazy, what gives?
Tonight she's living like the other half lives"
To think the highest brow, which I must say is he
Should pick the lowest brow, which there's no doubt is me

What a step up, holy cow, they'd never believe it,
If my friends could see me now
What a step up, holy cow, they'd never believe it
They'd never believe it, if my friends could see me now
Hi girls, it's me, Charity
