Just an Old Fashioned Girl
Eartha Kitt Lyrics


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

Love the way she snarls "Million...aire", suggesting she wants the million but not the millionaire.

Her voice control is fantastic. When she switches from being "sweet" to talking about money the overtones click on as if she'd pressed a switch. That's real skill.

cool

adonai yah it’s certainly difficult to master, don’t be a dick about it

adonai yah

@radical how dare you even speak to me in such a sarcastic and condescending way.

radical

adonai yah kind of is though, not that you’d know I guess

adonai yah

I performed this song in drag at a scout gang show in 1969 when I was 13. I was in thrall to her then and still am.  Unlike many of one's adolescent icons her reputation has not tarnished with time.
