about

As sung by Pepe Littman

lyrics

First verse:
I'm not one of those very rich girls.
I don't have any pretty dresses, I don't care about them
I can give a couple of punches, you'd be amazed
I swear on my life, I'm happiness for a man
Well, what good is a thin, elegant girl with a lot of earnings?
Whatever happens, you're going to have to run take her straight to the doctor

Oy vey, men, oy vey, don't you go believing
That because she's pretty, you'll be happy.
Beauty? Forget about it. Because I know, clearly:
You'll be miserable if she's not healthy.
