Part 1
I get too hungry for dinner at eight,
I like the theater, but never come late.
I never bother with people I hate,
That's why the lady is a tramp.
I don't like crap games with Barons and 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.
Part 2:
I like the free, fresh wind in my hair,
Life without care. I'm broke. It's oke.
Hate California, it's cold and it's damp,
That's why the lady is a tramp.
