Jeanette Anna MacDonald (June 18, 1903 – January 14, 1965) was an American singer and actress best remembered for her musical films of the 1930s with Maurice Chevalier (Love Me Tonight, The Merry Widow) and Nelson Eddy (Naughty Marietta, Rose-Marie, and Maytime). During the 1930s and 1940s she starred in 29 feature films, four nominated for Best Picture Oscars (The Love Parade, One Hour with You, Naughty Marietta and San Francisco), and recorded extensively, earning three gold records. She later appeared in opera, concerts, radio, and television.

Sister, you've been on my mind
Sister, we're two of a kind
So, sister, I'm keepin' my eye on you

I betcha think I don't know nothin 
But singin' the blues, oh, sister 
Have I got news for you, I'm something 
I hope you think that you're something too

Scufflin', I been up that lonesome road
And I seen alot of suns going down
Oh, but trust me
No low life's gonna run me around 

So let me tell you something Sister
 Remember your name, no twister  Gonna steal your stuff away, my sister 
We sho' ain't got a whole lot of time
So-o-o shake your shimmy Sister
'Cause honey the 'shug' is feelin' fine
