SECOND FIDDLE RAG (Music by Doug Bowes / Lyrics by Marie-Lynn Hammond) my man plays in a barroom band he's got one pair of lightning hands well he sits in the middle and he plays jazz fiddle right beside the big trombone oh it's dark when he goes out to work and light when he gets home I asked my man to show me how to play he said `forget it sugar that'll be the day you know this may be 1931 but a woman belongs at home baking pies and making eyes at the man she calls her own' so I bought me a fiddle on the sly and a crank-up gramophone I can't go wrong I'm playing along with Stephane Grappelli he turns me to jelly I'm learning tricks and real swell licks while my man is snoring away goodbye Yehudi hello Venuti my how that kid can play... well did you hear the news my man has done left town he ran off with that old Marjorie Brown oh I cried for a little then I grabbed my fiddle and I went down the the bar I said `Hey boss listen you're missin' a musician but you don't have to look too far 'cause here I am better grab me while you can or I'll be struttin' my stuff in ol' Ina Ray Hutton's all girl band
