    Easy enough ... or is it?


    I'll start:

        From Three Penny Opera... "Barbara Song"



        Can't vouch for this translation below... my German is ... sehr rostig.
        http://www.allthelyrics.com/lyrics/k...#ixzz45ZAlv7fW
        Barbara Song
        I used to believe in the days I was pure
        And I was pure like you used to be
        My wonderful someone will come to me someday and then it will all depend on me
        If he’s a fine man, if he’s a rich man,
        Wears a fine cravat, smokes a cigar
        And if he’s gallant and treats me like a lady then I shall tell him
        Sorry

        Chin up high keep your powder dry
        Don’t relax or go too far.
        Look, the moon is gonna shine till dawn
        Keep the little rowboat crusing on and on
        You stay perpendicular
        Oh, you can’t just let a man walk over you
        Cold and dignified is what you are
        Such a whole lot of things can happen
        So firmly say but sweetly
        Sorry

        One day comes a man
        But what kind of a man
        Do you know why he does what he does
        He walked into my room and he hung up his hat
        And I just didn’t know where I was
        He was a lean man, he was a mean man
        He didn’t own a cravat, smoked no cigar
        And God knows he never made me feel a lady.
        Just wasn’t time for sorry
        Chin up high my chin was down
        My shoes and I relaxed, but far too far
        Oh, the way the moon kept shining on
        The night was nice for rowing and this girl was gone
        Not so perpendicular
        So you let a man just walk right over you
        Who said dignified is what you are
        Such a wonderful lot of terrible things did happen
        And now it’s you can tell me
        Sorry

              Layla would certainly be my favorite and please, not the acoustic version!

                      OK, lots of nice ones cited, and I'll go for a 2nd one. That bass alone.....I've read that it's Carol Kaye, but I just don't know for sure.

                          And not exactly but this unknown staple of the repertoire...



                          A little bit of Googuh can be a dangerous thing.
