I'M STILL HERE CARLOTTA:

Good times and bum times,



I've seen them all and, my dear,

I'm still here.

Plush velvet sometimes,

Sometimes just pretzels and beer,

But I'm here.

I've stuffed the dailies

In my shoes.

Strummed ukuleles,

Sung the blues,

Seen all my dreams disappear,

But I'm here.

I've slept in shanties,

Guest of the W.P.A.,

But I'm here.

Danced in my scanties,

Three bucks a night was the pay,

But I'm here.

I've stood on bread lines

With the best,

Watched while the headlines

Did the rest.

In the Depression was I depressed?

Nowhere near.

I met a big financier

And I'm here.

I've been through Gandhi,

Windsor and Wally's affair,

And I'm here.

Amos 'n' Andy,

Mah-jongg and platinum hair,

And I'm here.

I got through Abie's

Irish Rose,

Five Dionne babies,

Major Bowes,

Had heebie-jeebies

For Beebe's

Bathysphere.

I lived through Brenda Frazier

And I'm here.

I've gotten through Herbert and J. Edgar Hoover,

Gee, that was fun and a half.

When you've been through Herbert and J. Edgar Hoover,

Anything else is a laugh.

I've been through Reno.

I've been through Beverly Hills,

And I'm here.

Reefers and vino,

Rest cures, religion and pills,

And I'm here

Been called a pinko

Commie tool,

Got through it stinko

By my pool.

I should have gone to an acting school.

That seems clear,

Still, someone said, "She's sincere,"

So I'm here.

Black sable one day.

Next day it goes into hock,

But I'm here.

Top billing Monday,

Tuesday you're touring in stock,

But I'm here.

First you're another

Sloe-eyed vamp,

Then someone's mother,

Then you're camp.

Then you career from career

To career.

I'm almost through my memoirs.

And I'm here.

I've gotten through "Hey, lady, aren't you whoozis?

Wow! What a looker you were."

Or, better yet, "Sorry, I thought you were whoozis.

Whatever happened to her?"

Good times and bum times,

I've seen 'em all and, my dear,

I'm still here.

Flush velvet sometimes,

Sometimes just pretzels and beer,

But I'm here.

I've run the gamut.

A to Z.

Three cheers and dammit,

C'est la vie.

I got through all of last year

And I'm here.

Lord knows, at least I was there,

And I'm here!

Look who's here!

I'm still here!
