A collaboration with the Queen: Oo-la-la!



I had a blast performing this for the second time with the Crash Test Cabaret on Sunday evening in the Odessa Club. Very fun! Emma is a commic genius. Big love. This was the first time I did the sketch, filmed at the Orchids' Mad Tea Party in the Sugar Club. Belly dancing is mesmerizing, I must try it sometime. You hear the tribal belly dancers before you see them! All the stuff dripping from them makes it very luxurious and abundant. Like a posh Ms. Hannigan...


Played by Carol Burnett, she was the best character in Annie, the film. With lines such as: "Fancy a tumble with the Bungle?". She also gets the best song. The lyrics go:

Little girls
Little girls
Everywhere I turn I can see them
Little girls
Little girls

Night and day
I eat, sleep and breathe them
I'm an ordinary woman
With feelings
I'd like a man to nibble on my ear
But I'll admit no man has bit
So how come I'm the mother of the year?

Little cheeks
Little teeth
Everything around me is little
(and here she skrewed up her mouth in the most infectiousness way!!)
If I wring
Little necks
Surely I will get an acquittal

Some women are dripping with diamonds
Some women are dripping with pearls
Lucky me! Lucky me!
Look at what I'm dripping with

Little girls
How I hate
Little shoes
Little socks
And each little bloomer
I'd have cracked
Years ago
If it weren't for my
Sense of humor

Some day
I'll step on their freckles
Some night
I'll straighten their curls
Send a flood
Send the flu
Anything that You can do
To little girls

Some day I'll land in the nut house
With all the nuts and the squirrels
There I'll stay
Tucked away
Until the prohibition of
Little girls.

Yeah so basically,

Tribal belly dancers + Gin =


A good time.

You know I acquired an old radio recently...
