Minstrel Show lyrics – from the minstrel show segment in White Christmas, starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, Vera-Ellen

I never cared about the drama
The drama always got my “hammer”
I came from sunny Alabama
Home of the Minstrel show
I think revues are always “bloomers”
They all depend upon costumers
You can have the plays
That are all the craze
At two dollars a throw

It won’t be long before we’ll all be there with snow
I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow

My Ship

Song lyrics to My Ship, from the musical Lady in the Dark, as recorded by Danny Kaye

My ship has sails that are made of silk
The decks are trimmed with gold
And of jam and spice there’s a paradise in the hold

My ship’s aglow with a million pearls
And rubies fill each bin
The sun sits high in a sapphire sky when my ship comes inRead More »My Ship

Song lyrics to Mandy, performed by Danny Kaye and Vera-Ellen in White Christmas

I was strolling out one evening by the silv’ry moon
I could hear somebody singing a familiar tune
So I stopped a while to listen
Not a word I wanted to miss
It was just somebody serenading something like this

There’s a minister handy
And it sure would be dandy
If we’d let him make a fee
So don’t you linger
Here’s the ring for your finger
Isn’t it a humdinger?
Come along and let the wedding chimes
Bring happy times
For Mandy and meRead More »Mandy
