Eartha Kitt

Eartha Mae Kitt (January 17, 1927 – December 25, 2008) was an American singer, actress, and cabaret star. She was perhaps best known for her highly distinctive singing style and her 1953 hit recordings of "C'est Si Bon" and the enduring Christmas novelty smash "Santa Baby". Orson Welles once called her the "most exciting woman in the world." She took over the role of Catwoman for the third and final season of the 1960s Batman television series, replacing Julie Newmar, who was unavailable due to other commitments. She also voiced Yzma on Disney's The Emperor's New Groove. more »

I'm just an old fashioned girl with an old fashioned mind
Not sophisticated, I'm the plain and simple kind
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire

I'd like a plain simple car, a cerise Cadillac
Long enough to have a bowling alley in the back
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire

I'll stay weaving at my loom
Be no trouble to my groom
If he'll keep the piles of money mounting
In our cottage there will be
A soundproof nursery
Not to wake the baby while I'm counting

I like the old fashioned flowers, violets are for me
Have them made in diamonds by the man at Tiffany
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire

I'm just a pilgrim at heart, oh so pure and genteel
Catch me in Las Vegas while I'm at the spinning wheel!
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire

I'll ask for such simple things when my birthday occurs
Two apartment buildings that are labeled "Hers and Hers"
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire

I like Chopin and Bizet
And the songs of yesterday
String quartets and Polynesian carols
But the music that excels
Is the sound of oil wells
As they slurp, slurp, slurp into the barrels

My little home will be quaint as an old parasol
And instead of carpets I'll have money wall to wall
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire
