by Lena Horne

Lena Mary Calhoun Horne (June 30, 1917 – May 9, 2010) was an American singer, actress, civil rights activist and dancer.




She gets too hungry for dinner at eight 
She likes the theatre and never comes late 
She never bothers with people she'd hate 
That's why the lady is a tramp 

Doesn't like crap games with barons or earls 
Won't go to Harlem in ermine and pearls 
Won't dish the dirt with the rest of the girls 
That's why the lady is a tramp 

She likes the free, fresh wind in her hair 
Life without care 
She's broke, and it's "ok"

Hates California, it's cold and it's damp 
That's why the lady is a tramp 

She gets too hungry to wait for dinner at eight 
She loves the theatre but never comes late 
She'd never bother with people she'd hate 
That's why the lady is a tramp 

She'll have no crap games with sharpies and frauds 
And she won't go to Harlem in Lincolns or Fords 
And she won't dish the dirt with the rest of the broads 
That's why the lady is a tramp 

She'd love the free, fresh wind in her hair 
Life without care 
She's broke, but it's "ok" 

Hates California, it's so cold and so damp 
That's why the lady 
That's why the lady 
That's why the lady is a tramp
