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 »

If I was a boy I'd know the things a girl shouldn't know
I'd go where girls shouldn't go
So, oh so girls shouldn't, so

If I was a boy, I'd had come of age a long time ago
It would be a joy, if I was a boy

If I was a boy, I'd do so much a girl can't explain
I'd pack and catch me a train
Go out and raise me some Cain

If I was a boy, there'd be some use in having a brain
It would be a joy, just to be a boy

There is such a lot a girl is got to cope with
There are times I think I'm busting at the seams

But as long as I have something left to hope with
I still have my dreams

If I was a boy, I'd have no wings like girls seem to sprout
Learn things that girls seem to doubt
Spread my activities out

If I was a boy, I'd know what all the shouting's about
It would be a joy, just to be a boy

There is such a lot a girl is got to cope with
There are times I think I'm busting at the seams

But as long as I have something left to hope with
I still have my dreams

If I was a boy, I'd have no wings like girls seem to sprout
Learn things that girls seem to doubt
Spread my small activities out

If I was a boy, I'd know what all the shouting's about
It would be a joy, just to be a boy

Doggone it, if I was only a boy, the things I wouldn't do
I'd take a trip to
