SAM, YOU MADE THE PANTS TOO LONG (Victor Young (m) 1932 Milton Berle (l) 1940 Fred Whitehouse (l) 1940) note - this is a sendup of "Lawd, You Made The Night Too Long" written in 1932 with lyrics by Sam M Lewis as recorded by Barbra Streisand with Orchestra conducted by Peter Matz January 20th 1966 New York Trousers draggin', slowly draggin' through the street, Yes I'm walkin', but I'm walkin' without feet! I'm not findin' fault at all With what's too big and what's too small, But Sam, Sam you promised me both ends would meet! You made the coat and vest Fit the best, You made the lining nice and strong, But Sam, you made the pants too long! You made the peak lapel Look so swell, Who am I to say you're wrong? But Sam, you made the pants too long! They got the belt and they got suspenders, So what can they lose? But what good are belts,what good suspenders, When the pants are hangin' over the shoes? You feel a winter breeze Up and down the knees, The belt is where the tie belongs, 'Cause Sam, Sam, Sam, you made the pants too long! Know what I mean, Sam?
