From the film "Funny Girl" (1968)
(Jule Styne / Bob Merrill)
Barbra Streisand - 1968
What are ya gonna do?
Shoot da swans? These lovelies?
Can't you see when you look at me
What a lovely creature is a swan - yo hoo!!
I'm all over fluffy white.
I wouldn't peck at you or bite
And have tiny twinkle toes to dance upon-
Oh was that good?
So you just gotta have a swan
Or you're out of luck
`Cause a chicken wouldn't do it
Would only cluck
And besides you couldn't say
"I saw a chicken leg ballet"
They would think you don't know nothin'
You are missing you are button
`Cause a chicken's only good for consummate
Where upon, where upon,
Where upon where upon
A chicken or a duck is a mistake
When you do Swan Lake Ballet!
